Bistro Tallulah (Glens Falls)

I keep hearing good things about Bistro Tallulah. Anyone been? Your experience?

Not much on this Board. Found this on Yelp:

  1. Been once; enjoyed. Youthful vibe, choice of small plates or large. I ate roast chicken and beet salad. Not really a destination place, but a lot of fun.

      1. It's fantastic. One of my favorite places, and I live in Saratoga, where we are blessed with much good food. You can get small plates of everything, even the salads. The food is a delight and the atmosphere boisterous and fun. I love the house salad, with Maytag bleu, toasted pecans, and pepper jelly vinaigrette, and the pan-roasted salmon with potato/celeriac puree. Everything is artfully plated. My husband loves the sweetbreads, others I know have enjoyed the cioppino, the pulled pork sandwich, and more. Check out the menu. If it were a tad closer, I would go every week.

              If you go and make a reservation, ask for one of the front window tables. Much quieter and pleasant. Unless you go with a group and really want a bistro-type experience, then you'll be in the noisy back room. Great place.

        1. Was there recently and I thought it was very nice, especially for the area where good eats are tough to come by. Many of the entrees come in two sizes -- small and regular. Thought small size was plenty large -- probably equivalent to regular size entrees I generally get in NYC. Flavors tend to be on the heavier side -- seems that the chef favors a lot of umami flavor -- grated parmesan on the fries, blue cheese in the duck jus.

          They were really busy but our waiter was really sweet and went out of his way to help us.

            Thanks, Miss Needle.

            Maybe I'll get there in 2014 :)
