Everett St. Bistro (1140 NW Everett St.)

My friend Ansley was in town this past weekend and I met up with her and some friends at Everett St. Bistro on Friday night for dinner. It's a cute little place, with a decadent dessert case right out in front to lure you into the trap of full fat sweetness.

There was a table of four right next to us with two identical women (orange tan, bleach blonde layered hair, dark sleeveless shirts and jeans) and their two identical male companions (salt-and-pepper hair, plaid button-up shirts, khaki shorts). The women both ordered salad (cliché) and I couldn't see what the men ordered. I'm sure it was something salad-y.

Our table was a bit more gluttonous. Mac and cheese, clam risotto, a couple of big fat burgers, and me - I ordered grilled hanger steak topped with a veal demiglace, served with garlic mashed potatoes and fresh green beans. Every bite was pure heaven. The mashed potatoes weren't quite as creamy as I like them, but they were good, even so. The veal demiglace was so buttery and salty and a perfect match to the rare steak.

The waitress was really nice and accomodating for our group of nine people, even offering at the beginning to split the check up for us. She kept our Diet Cokes refilled and checked on us often.

The steak was well worth the $18 price. The sad thing: I only ate half of it and got the rest to go. Then I left the box on the table.

I had often walked passed wondering what the food was like. After being there, I wish I had gone sooner.

Hey, It's Ansley said...

So glad y'all liked it and even more happy that I got to see all y'all while I was in town.

totally sucks when you forget the doggie bag! I've called back to restaurants 20 minutes later and they've graciously kept it in the refrig for me til next day.

Wow it never crossed my mind to call them and have them hold it for me. I'm totally doing that the next time I forget my doggie bag!
