Last night we had a marvelous dinner at Bicycle on Light Street. We started with the $18 wine (a New Zealand Sauvignon blanc), beggar's purse with scallops--perfectly cooked and spiced in a phyllo dough holder. Then onto the steaks with their carmelized veggies--mine was that rare melt-in the mouth texture with saucing that allowed the beef flavor to shine through. Finally a lemon cake the was moist with just the right amount of citrus.
Could someone explain why this restaurant is not treated with the same respect that Soigne and Vespa get? The food had great flavor combinations, beautiful presentation, the wine list had good variety (both in types and prices) and the service was attentive, pleasant, and knowledgable. Even the setting was a real pleasure with their intimate garden just on the other side of the glass. I was really impressed last night!
