Anniversary Dinner – Bistro Leroux

Thank you all so, so much for the anniversary wishes! We don’t exchange gifts, but we did go out to a nice dinner last night and then since this is a special anniversary (15), we are going to do a champagne brunch cruise on Lake George this weekend.

Anyway, I thought I would show you what we had for dinner last night. Bistro LeRoux is fairly new and is chef owned an operated.  It is an upscale bistro and super charming outside and inside.

I have to say that I love the trend of restaurants serving the small plate option.  This allows us to get an appetizer if we want and not feel stuffed.  Also, it makes it much more affordable!

Bistro Leroux does a variety of dishes from gluten free, to vegan and omnivore, plus they have their own vegetable garden.

We split an appetizer of crab cakes.

These were ah-mazing!  Very good crab with chunks of meat.  The slaw on top was very interesting as was the chipotle cilantro. Neither of us likes cilantro at all, but I would not have guessed there was any in it.  It almost tasted like pesto.  So good!

My entree was half portion of Apple Braised Chicken Waldorf.

This was also excellent and had such a nice contrast of flavors and textures. The only thing I didn’t like was the bits of celery in the Waldorf salad (but I just don’t like celery that much).  It had a parmesan risotto underneath.  Love!

 

John had the half portion wild sea scallops with garlic mashed potatoes and prosciutto wrapped asparagus.

Also very delicious and the scallops were so moist!  I have never had prosciutto before, so I tried some of John’s. It was like really flavorful bacon 😀

 

Since these portions were smaller, we decided to split dessert. We split the chocolate lava cake.

This was good, but didn’t bowl us over like the other items.

Definitely recommended!  After that, we went to my sister’s house to distribute those squinkies to my niece 😀

    Wow, what a pretty bistro! I love it. The food looks amazing. I’ve never had risotto or prosciutto before. Very wild. Glad it was all so yummy. Can’t wait to see the cruise pictures. I did my very first a few weeks ago and it was wonderful! You’ll love it.

    Oh, and just so you know…

    BRING IT ON SUNDAY

    MUHAHAHAHA

    Just kidding, sort of. 🙂

    I am so with you on the small plates. Even though I don’t mind leftovers, the huge portions served at most restaurants just annoy me. The lighting in your photos tells me it was a wonderful evening! Everything looks absolutely yummy. Glad you made your special anniversary extra special by really celebrating.

    Yum! The prosciutto-wrapped asparagus is delicious. I had a Tapena Wine House Party/tapas party and in the cookbook one of the recipes was simply asparagus wrapped in Serrano ham. I didn’t know where I would find that and felt that prosciutto would make a fantastic substitution. Crispy, salty and bacon-y- perfect! It actually is just unsmoked bacon.
