Saffron Bistro-Nashua NH review

whs | Sep 7, 2007 07:17 AM

We finally made it to SB yesterday for lunch. The place is quite elegant, a tad formal, sort of like a mini Ritz Carlton dining room. (I think it's the striped velvet upholstered chairs and satin window swags that make it feel that way.) There are a couple of tables out on the sidewalk for alfresco dining, and the bar is plush. The place was almost full with a pretty diverse crowd--the mayor was sitting at a table with a couple of cronies, a few tables of "ladies who lunch", and young couples in jeans. Lunch menu is an abbreviated version of dinner with fewer entree selections. We shared a fantastic pate de campagne, served with a small salad, gherkins, halved grapes, and coarse mustard. It came with a thick slice of grilled country bread--perfect. For mains, I had the lobster ravioli in a saffron cream sauce, and SO had tenderloin tips, with sides of potato salad and greens. Both were very good. The restaurant serves warm asiago rolls with meals--it's worth eating here just for these. Dessert was a chocolate creme brulee--not as light as the classic prep, but rich and satisfying. Service was courteous and professional--when I expressed interest in coming back for dinner, the waiter brought me the evening menu to look over. Saffron Bistro is a worthy addition to the vibrant Nashua dining scene.
