New Restaurant in Piermont, NY

Ate at the new Sidewalk Bistro in Piermont over the weekend, taking a chance on a kitchen that had just been open 48 hours. It's great. Better than Nice Matin. Salad Nicoise of perfectly blanched julienned vegetables, rare sashimi grade tuna with a light dusting of cracked pepper. The lamb was flawless, the steak came rare as requested. Our server was very good. We returned a few days later and sat in the renovated back courtyard. Again, great service and another very good meal. The interior is yellow, simple, with the basic lace curtains and French posters, but it has a better feel and far more warmth than the sterile (and overrated) Freelance Cafe down the block.

  1. I ate there last night too, and agree, the food, service (Thank you Charlie!!!) and atmosphere terrific for a restaurant only open for a few days. Not sure how it will be able to improve when it is so good already. We ate the mussels, which were great, a Kobe Burger rare and fries which was juicy and delicious (For $10!!!), the Penne with Eggplant which was wonderful, and shared the profiteroles for dessert. yum.....

    We're going to try to go back with 6 people tonight. I hope we get in!!! I expect it will be packed when more people discover how good and reasonable this French Bistro is.
