Disappointing RW at Bistro Bis

bougouni | Aug 5, 2005 10:04 AM

Another hotel-linked restaurant did not do as well. Husband and I went last night. Only two apps and two entrees on RW menu--apps were tomato soup and ? and entrees were swordfish and chicken. Similar preps--tomatoes, etc. We opted out. I had a crab salad that was OK but way too salty. Husband had a very ordinary green salad (he's as far from a CH as you can get and still thought it was boring). It was also too salty. I had a tasty roasted halibut next, best thing of the night, and he had a so-so risotto. Total was $70 ish. The thing I really don't understand is that they listed the swordfish RW entree at $26 or so, which was just about the price of most of the other entrees, so why couldn't they include more choices? Another complaint--menu was full of winter things like duck confit.

We skipped the $8 ice cream option, which was the only thing that sounded appealing on such a sultry night, and had great $1.60 cones at Scoop Beauregard in Arlington instead.
