Hey fellow Chowhounds,

My friends and I are going to Bistrotek tomorrow and just wanted a few opinions on what to order.

Thanks in advance!

      Thanks! That looked like a must-order just from looking at the menu ... yum!

        A few weeks ago the sliders were pork belly, no shrimp. Excellent. Also had a nice pasta with lamb ragu.

          Have you had the spaghetti and meatballs there? I have a craving and hopefully their rendition is satisfying?

      Definitely the shrimp sliders! The Caesar salad is really nice, and the burger is good. The flat iron steak is good also. I had fish & chips there once, and it was really disappointing. They have some nice cocktails - I had an excellent one with vodka, ginger ale, lime juice, and cucumber. Really refreshing and not too sweet. Have a drink by the pool too if you get a chance - it's such great weather, and the poolside lounge is nice and relaxing.

        Thanks for the beverage tip! May have to go down that route (instead of wine) ...

        I really loved their white fish over beans dish... simple very well executed... I dunno why more restaurants don't do something like this...

          Is that the mahi-mahi dish on the menu? Looks tasty ...

              Dinner overall was average - I got the spaghetti and meatballs which I think was a miss, but other people had different dishes and enjoyed their entrees more. I'll be putting together a quick review and posting it later this week. Thanks for the suggestions everyone.
