Quincy Street Bistro

I admit that I was a little disappointed that Rick Lewis is no longer with Quincy Street Bistro now that I finally made it there, but my dining experience definitely lived up to the hype!

I was really fortunate that there was four people in my party, including Beth, the birthday girl, so I could try several dishes, including a couple of appetizers.

I couldn't pass up the cheese curds! I ate most of them (sorry readers!) and almost forgot to get a picture until the very end. How sad the last one looks...

These are cornmeal battered local cheese curds served with buttermilk dressing.

Crispy Cheese Curds
I was also curious about their version of "toasted ravs"...too much of a piggy flavor for me, but I did enjoy the crunchy outside.

Hog Head Toasted Ravioli
I really wanted to try the fried chicken very badly, but I went with the Pastrami Gone-A-Rye.

Pastrami Gone A-Rye with Baked Mac & Cheese
The pastrami is house-smoked with bread & butter pickled cabbage, gruyere cheese, and 1000 island dressing on a toasted rye bread.

Thanks to the birthday girl, I was able to trade half of the sandwich for a piece of chicken!!! YES!! At last!!

Buttonwood Farms Fried Chicken
The chicken entree includes a boneless breast and thigh soaked in buttermilk, tossed in seasoned flour, country-fried and served with mashed spuds and sawmill gravy.

The meat was SO juicy and tender! It definitely was the winner.

Patience ordered the Smokehouse Burger...you can't go wrong with any of the burgers really. This one came with smoked ketchup and gruyere cheese! Ok ok...another winner of a choice.

Smokehouse Burger
The Smokehouse Burger is a blend of beef and pork and as you can see, the Baked Mac & Cheese was the most popular side dish at our table!

Then my friend Matt chose the Bahn Mi #3 (not sure what the 3 stands for), which includes a sweet chili glazed crispy pork belly, slow roasted chicken, cucumber and pickled veggies on a toasted french bread.

This sandwich was so huge, Matt ended up just using his fork.

And you can't have a birthday dinner without some dessert to hold up a candle!!!

Here is the Bread Pudding with a scoop of vanilla ice cream on top! None of us were able to finish it since we were so full from our dinners!

Make sure you go there in a group so you can "eat all of the things"!
