THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Bistro Pacific Restaurant Review

: It’s easy to miss this unassuming place, but don’t pass it by. The Pan-Asian menu is balanced more toward sushi and maki than Chinese or Thai, but there are more than enough options to keep things interesting. We have an affinity for the Szechwan beef, garlic shrimp and Peking duck in Boston lettuce pockets, but find dishes like Singapore- or Japanese-style fried soft shell crab and Korean pancakes more than passable, too. Then again, it’s hard to go wrong with a classic bento box. This is a comfortable, bordering on cozy, restaurant filled with booths and tables, soft colors and minimal trappings. The sushi bar is tucked away to one side and offers notable preparations as well.
