Bistro 9

tako | Sep 3, 2007 07:29 PM

This bistro just opened up on 9th ave, near lincoln. The space is quite nice and roomy, and they specialize in rotisserie chicken and beef. We didn't try the beef but the chicken was quite flavorful. My sides on the other hand were not very special. The grilled sweet potato with lime and honey was too much on the lime side, and the gruyere macaroni was bland. The other person that I was with had the rotisserie chicken sandwich and the focaccia was too thick. The food there has a moraccan and greek theme. They had a decent selection of beers on tap. I don't recall what the wine selection was. The moroccan tea with mint was nice and not too sweet. The neat thing about this place was its abundance of outdoor space (in the front and back, good for those sparse sunny days in the sunset). And they told us that they would be opening a lounge downstairs, which we got to get a glimpse of. It looked like it would be an interesting addition to this predominantly sports/irish bar neighborhood.
