I seem to be hot on the naturally raised / organic tilth type restaurant these days, but I'm presuming it's not personal fad.
Why aren't more people talking about this place? is it the location?
I checked out 35th Street Bistro this weekend w/ my date. Have you guys been here? It was kind of a find for us - we happened to be in Freemont and it was really the only one of it's kind that we saw (I haven't been to Brad's Swingside Cafe' yet, but I hear that Jerry Garcia's (of the jerry garcia band) keyboard player loves this place. I digress. Anyway, we stopped in after making a later reservation (8pm.) We were promptly seated. It was a bit loud at first, but they were nice enough to move us to a table away from the door / wall that seemed to permeate the sound even more. I was surprised at how good our food was - I'm not sure why - I didn't have any steadfast preconceptions...but it was a very nice surprise. We ordered the gnochi, the scallops, and shared a beet salad and fries to start. All very well done. The sauces were amazing, the food warm, the service was quite nice and the place was comfortably packed the entire time we were there.
I'll be going back - but I'm surprised there doesn't seem to be as much buzz around this place as I would figure.
Can't wait to try out their burger - locally raised oregon beef. Yum!!! Anyway...thought I'd let y'all know. And if you know of any better options, let me know, but this one was a winner!!!
