Kensington Bistro...R.I.P. I hardly knew ye (dinner is gone)

What is infinite sadness? I know it today (in a food way).

TheGirl and I had never eaten dinner at our local Kensington Bistro...only 4 blocks away in El Cerrito/Albany/Kensington. We've been there for brunch and never had a bad meal.

On a whim, we decided to go there for dinner...only to learn it was the their last night of serving dinner. AND IT WAS FANTASTIC.

So, we live 4 blocks from this FANTASTIC Bistro and we only go there for weekend brunches, and on a whim we go there for dinner...and it's the last that they will serve. :( <sigh> Such is life.

Anyhoot, R.I.P. Kensington Bistro (dinner). The Niman Ranch steak I had tonight was fabulous. The spinach salad TheGirl had was delicious. The appetizer (Artichoke & Crab Gratine) was superb. Our desserts (banana layer cake & a hot fudge sundae) were excellent.

And after 1.25 bottles of wine, we walked away very happy. Sadly, we'll never have the chance to go back for dinner.

I hardly knew ye, Kensignton Bistro Dinner, but I'll miss you.
