“Great Spot for Lunch in Winston Salem”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 August 2013

Our party of two stopped at New Town Bistro around noon for lunch. What is great about the lunch menu is that, unlike some places, the menu is not over-bearing or cluttered. I ordered an "express lunch" consisting of a cup of soup - today's soup was a squash bisque that was fantastic, sweet potato fries and chicken salad. The chicken salad is made with nuts and raisins, a combination that adds zest to the salad. My friend ordered a "Kobe" burger with a bruschetta topping. It was excellent prepared and delicious. Our server was Jordan. She knew the menu very well and was able to explain various items, stopped by the table often - which I noticed she did at all four tables she was responsible for. Cheerful, knowledgeable associates are a real plus in any business but a restaurant they can really determine whether customers come back again. The restaurant was well located, easy to find off of main roads and a highway. The menu prices have something for every budget. A great place to go for lunch.

“Every year for the last eleven years we have gone here for our anniversary dinner and each year is better than the year before.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 August 2013

My wife had the tenderloin chunks with button mushroom, shallots and the brussel sprouts with bacon and nuts on the side. I had the herb crusted Ahi Tuna med rare with aioli sauce & some greens, and, bacon wrapped asparegus. We can't decide which dish was better because they were both excellent. Cherrie was very helpful did a fantastic job.

“One Time Visit Might Be a Little Skewed”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 June 2013

Since I've only been once, it's probably a little unfair to rate it too badly. It just wasn't my kind of food. Service was good, and the atmosphere is fine. My wife and I simply found the food a little too even tempered.

“What a surprise”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 March 2013

This is one of those places that we took a chance on as a local recommended to us. We really won on this gamble. This place has a very impressive menu from a chef that obviously has a passion for food. We will make sure to make this a regular stop when we are onsite in Winston Salem.
