Bloomers Bistro is still closed for renovations. We were able to get a reservation for Tiznow. The SaratogaArtsFest 2009 was in full swing and there was a large and lively crowd at Tiznow's bar and on the sidewalk. Tiznow is an old machine shop and the space is a large, open bistro. We were lucky to get a table against the wall and as far from the bar area as possible. Service was very good. Our servers were from Brooklyn and LI. Now on to the food:


*Spicy fried calamari with a sweet chili-lime aioli. Calamari was cooked perfectly. A salad-like bed of lettuce almost obscured the calamari.

*Thai mussels steamed in sambal, coconut milk, lemongrass. Light and good.


*Seared salmon with pernod and tomato herb vinaigrette and potatoes. Salmon was cooked perfectly. Dish was a little bland.

*Roasted duck breast with moroccan carrot sauce and cous-cous. Very good. The better of the two mains.

We skipped dessert and headed to Eugene's for some gelato and espresso.
