We returned to the Bistro about a year after our first visit. Coincidentally seated at the same booth and had the same fine waitress, Kayla (Kaylee?), again. One of our party had the stuffed salmon, another had grilled salmon, the third had prime rib ... and I had the crab cakes. That latter entree consists of two 5-ounce cakes that are not overly burdened by breading. The cakes are fried lightly. The crab is lump, significant lump mostly. The cakes are accompanied by some asaragus and a sort of tomato puree. That's it. And the meal costs $23.
The puree is what Kayla called a "plate scraper". It is an accompanyment to the crab cake, much like one would use tartar sauce. I would not think it the greatest accompanyment. I might be wrong once in a while! It is spread on the plate with the crab cakes placed on top. The puree adds a new dimension to good crab cakes as far as I am concerned. Not just another crab cake with lemon juice and tartar sauce. Very tasty.
I can envision a couple watching calories who might share that entree, and add another side just to make it more filling and interesting.
Nobody was hungry enough for dessert ... well one of our party was apparently. She got what turned out to be a huge piece of key lime pie ... the real stuff that is not dyed green. All of us sampled it. All of us liked it.
BTW, the other three in my party liked their entrees, too. But the crab cakes were great! If I see any shortcoming, it might be the minimal volume of the "side". But the grilled asparagus was very good indeed.
Worth a visit.
