Since our initial visit at the end of a "snow storm" in Birmingham, we have had the opportunity to visit Bistro 218 two more times, including a visit with friends on a Saturday night. The décor, the music, the fantastic & friendly service, and, most important, the food continues to amaze. On this most recent visit I started with the West Indies Salad, with fresh picked blue crab meat (NO fake or "old" crab meat here!),... fantastic. Other dishes included the house cured pork belly (best I have ever had), fried green tomatoes with shrimp and crawfish (sublime), and again, the fantastic gumbo.
