THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Bistro Time Restaurant Review

: Bistro Time’s menu may change frequently, but its focus remains relentlessly Old World with occasional nods to the new. Veal sweetbreads with mushrooms and Marsala and Steak Diane in a comfortably classic sauce of brandy with cream and mushrooms form a foundation for more fanciful dishes such as the Grilled Portobello and Eggplant Tower and potato-crusted salmon with a red wine sauce---which, in context, seem almost outré. Chef Sander Edmondson and his wife run Bistro Time like a mom-and-pop business---a high-end mom-and-pop business, to be sure, considering such upscale appetizers as scallops sautéed with vanilla beans and cream, a truly exceptional crab cake with roasted pepper lime butter and a brie and mushroom tart drizzled with truffle oil, all of which are right at home in the low-light paneled interior. Denizens of the nearby Medical Center abound at lunch (perhaps it’s the panini or the buffet), while a more conservative crowd appears to prevail at dinner.
