It’s summertime and we’re grilling again…come on over for Bistro Bar-B-Q Night!

When it comes to one of our special summer events, the will of the people has definitely spoken. For the past two years, we’ve been offering you the chance to leave the cover on your barbecue grill and drop on by your neighbors here at the Bistro to enjoy a work-free Bar-B-Q feast. And you’ve turned this annual cookout into a sold-out hit! So we’re offering it again this year, with all your favorite dishes included.

No getting your face red over the charcoal, no smoke in your eyes…all you have to do is kick back and take it easy while you dig into brisket and ribs with an intoxicating aroma and flavor, and chicken cooked sous vide so it’s moist and tender down to the bone before it gets a crispy-sweet skin on the grill. And, of course, plenty of fixin’s on the side.

Make plans now to join us Thursday, August 1, between 5 and 9 p.m. For $50 per couple, plus tax and gratuity, you get all this:

Smoked Bar-B-Q Brisket
1/2 Grilled Chicken with House Bar-B-Q Sauce
1/2 Slab Smoked St. Louis Ribs with House Bar-B-Q Sauce
Rooftop-Herbed Redskin Potato Salad
Cole Slaw
Our Famous Mac ‘n’ Cheese
Jalapeño Corn Muffins
Strawberry Shortcake with Fresh Whipped Cream

Mmmm…doesn’t just thinking about it make you want to grab a cold beverage and hang out on the patio until your plate is ready? Round up some friends and call 216.481.9635 to make your reservations today. You’ll want them to be in on the fun, too! The pleasure of a cookout where nobody has to cook (or clean up!) and everybody has time to relax, talk, laugh and enjoy a leisurely summer get-together…don’t miss it!

We’ve got an August full of great dinners planned for you!

Can you believe it–half of July is already over (and, you could say, half the summer…oh well!). But the plans we’ve got for celebrating this all-too-short season at the Bistro are far from over. Take a look at what we have in store for August:

JULIA CHILD CENTENNIAL: Wednesday, August 15, will be the 100th anniversary of the birth of culinary legend Julia Child. We’ll celebrate Julia’s 100th birthday with a dinner of five courses of Julia-inspired cuisine paired with five wines. If you loved our 2009 “Julia Project,” this is a feast you won’t want to miss! (But if you did miss it…this is your second chance!)

BBQ NIGHT: On Thursday, August 23, it’s time to experience the quintessential element of summer dining: a barbecue. Only you won’t need to flush your face over a smoking-hot grill or cram a neighborhoodful of guests into your backyard to enjoy this spread. Let us do all the work while you and your friends sit down to a menu featuring enough BBQ classics to fill a picnic table. This dinner was a huge hit last summer, so don’t wait too long to make your reservations–it’s likely to sell out fast!

VEGAN NIGHT: Thursday, August 30, will be our Vegan Dinner Night for the month of August. Watch this space for details on the theme and menu.

Mark your calendars now and make a note or set yourself a reminder alarm on the smartphone. Keep an eye out for details to arrive soon. You’ll want to call and save your spot for these!
