The Bristol Restaurant Review

: The Bristol features everything from soups and salads to steak frites and the famous Bristol burger. Power players dine center stage in a room featuring plush couches and mahogany tables. The menu, too, takes a luxe approach to casual fare. For breakfast, you will find brioche french toast; lunchtime brings lobster rolls with truffle fries; dinner goes all out with a grilled New York strip. The aforementioned Bristol burger is the dish to target at lunch: an enormous, juicy patty is topped with cheddar, fresno jam and bacon aïoli. Service is professional and especially shines at the afternoon tea, when scones and tea sandwiches pair up with an extensive variety of uniquely flavored teas (think ginger lemon, crimson berry and black raspberry).
