Awhile back a young lady, I would guess 9, Katie Schuab, brought me a paper she wrote for a class project about the Bistro. It starts, “Do you like fancy restaurants? If so, you should visit Diamond Jim Brady’s. It has GOOD food.” She continued with “they are the kindest people and the service is fast and fantastic. The server never forgets to ask us “”how is your lunch or dinner” and the manager will become friends with you.” Best of all she finishes with “my whole family loves everything and everyone at Diamond Jim Brady's. I give it 1,100 out of 1,100 smiley faces. I hope everyone gets a chance to visit.” Thanks Katie!!! You’re a great restaurant reviewer. What a fine compliment from you. We all appreciate your praise for what we strive to accomplish. We’re honored!
The Bistro will be closed for a “refresh” on Sunday and Monday. After four years of heavy traffic (thank-you!!) it is time to do some updates on the interior. Sharon and I are diligent about painting several times a year and doing regular maintenance but this is a bit more of a makeover and requires 48 hours of around the clock installation. You’ll notice some changes, the others not. For instance, we have a new air-lock system install that will block the cold air and wind on the patios. There will also be wind shades that will make the patios homier. On Sunday the staff will travel via bus to a surprise destination, which is a combo of work and fun. I’ll fill you in next week.
Weekend Chalkboard Features are outstanding as usual starting with a Duck Confit Flat Bread topped with shredded Duck Leg, Caramelized Onion and Walnut Pesto, Pears and Gruyere Cheese; East Coast Golden Corvina, similar to Snapper, Presented with Saffron Rice, Sauté of Zucchini and Romesco Sauce: Pork and Beans, Smoked Pork Shoulder Slowly Cooked with Bourbon, Brown Sugar and Cannellini Beans and Grilled Mai served with Black Bean and Corn Rice and Cilantro Sour Cream and Tortilla Straw. YUM!!
WE LOOK FORWARD TO SEEING YOU AT THE BISTRO AND WISH YOU ALL A
MILLION DOLLAR DAY!
