Bistango Restaurant Review

: The Atrium Building provides a picturesque setting for this modern bistro’s contemporary food, as well as the revolving art displays. The completely redesigned space has added sleek touches like a centrally located 360 degree bar and an earth-toned color scheme that accentuates its already strong metropolitan vibe, making it an ideal oasis in the midst of the Irvine business scene. The New American cuisine smartly pushes convention through a seasonally changing menu featuring in-house butchered cuts of meat and game such as venison. Always available are crisp gourmet pizzas, seared ahi, steaks, veal chops and several interesting pastas. Start with the tuna tartare or the comforting garlic soup. As for a main course, order any of the steaks, a risotto or a fish dish, perhaps the molasses-glazed, pecan-encrusted king salmon. Lunchtime possibilities are highlighted by the two-course prix-fixe menu --- apropos for busy business types. The wine list includes more than 500 labels, and there’s an extensive by-the-glass selection. Nightly entertainment and intriguing small plates in the bar keep the good times going.
