As the long weekend (and unofficial summer) begin…

…we hope all our Bistro friends will come join us soon for lunch or dinner, good friends and relaxing times, whether out on the patio or inside. We’ve got plenty for you to enjoy in the warm-weather season, so watch this space!

For example, we’ve added two new specials to tempt you in the door: Seafood Etouffee with Tempura Soft Shell Crab, Shrimp, Mussels and Clams and Rustic Italian Chicken and Pasta with Artichoke Hearts, Olives, Sun-Dried Tomatoes, Roasted Garlic, and Shallots Tossed with Pappardelle Pasta. Mouth watering yet? Come in and enjoy!

Also, on Tuesday, May 31, at 5 p.m., we’re pleased to be part of the LGBT Restaurant Tour. This evening will benefit the Lesbian Gay Bisexual Transgender Community Center of Greater Cleveland. Call 216.481.9635 to make your reservation and have a fantastic dinner with us!

Lots to do and taste in May!
