Southside Bistro Restaurant Review

: With its Euro-American vibe, vintage French posters and bold colors, Southside Bistro offers a warm and welcoming space. From the two distinct dining areas, choose the casual bistro side for a glass of vino with a friend. Enjoy a bite from the bistro menu, which boasts burgers and pizzas along with appetizers that include a variety of fresh shellfish dishes or the popular wood-fired nachos. The more formal dining room is a great date-night option where kitchen views include peek-a-boo flames from the brick wood-fired oven and bustling chefs busy at their stations. Start with the Kodiak Weathervane scallops and risotto cake with truffle shellfish cream and tomato-basil salsa, or the fresh Alaskan oysters, served raw in the shell with a touch of horseradish ice. Scandinavian duck is slow-roasted and paired with a brandy currant sauce and red cabbage and rice. Desserts are delightful; each plate is assembled as a mini artwork enhanced by subtle, colorful sauces. The bar has a short but notable list of beers, while the extensive wine list will tempt wine lovers with well-known domestic and European selections in every price range.
