Bistro Bulgari [Crystal City] Report

I had supper there the other night.

Very pretty light airy setting with Balkan design plates and serving utensils, Balkan/Bulgarian pictures and handiwork on the walls. Pleasant service and some conversation with the owner.

I don't know if the chicken soup was authentic Bulgarian but it was authentic home made, rich and good. The Bulgarian Cheese Pies were light and flavorful. Bulgarian Trio [stuffed pepper, stuffed grape leaves, moussaka] which we got to try a sampling of the menu looked like it would be common Central European and/or Greek from the names of the items; but there were different and interesting spices/herbs in them that made the different than usual stuffed peppers or moussaka.

I've forgotten the name of the dessert, it was soft phyllo with custard and a vanilla sauce; good but too sweet for my taste.

Much use of yogurt, cucumber, dill.

The two of us had two appetizers, two main courses, one glass of wine and split a dessert. The bill with tax but not including tip was just under $50.

The next time I'll look into the Monastery Style Bean Soup and Lamb Stew “Stomna Kebap” .
