The three left-handed half-Italians met for dinner last night at Bistro la Bon (Central Avenue in Plaza Midwood). We stuffed ourselves with numerous shared plates. I’ll start the discussion and the others can add their comments.
We shared the following: seafood platter, charcuterie plate, cheese plate, crispy avocado and asparagus, lamb belly with mint/arugula puree, brioche bread pudding.
I was very pleased with our meal and especially surprised at how delicious the lamb belly was. The subtle mint flavor complimented the meat perfectly. The charcuterie plate was delicious, the lardo being especially decadent. The seafood platter had a sampling of N.C. trout that was mild but flavorful.
Service was good and prices are very reasonable for the quality of the food. I’ve heard really good things about Bistro la Bon’s brunch which is served on Saturday and Sunday. I’ll be back!
