Dining Guide

Bistro Menil

This lovely spot across the street from the Menil Collection offers artful and satisfying dishes, many with Italian or French roots. Modestly priced entrées include two sides, with a nice selection of wines to complement your order. Order this to go: the impossibly rich and delicious goat cheese and leek fondue, a round of fresh chèvre atop a pool of melted Gruyère, topped with crisp shallots, all to scoop up with thin focaccia; a perfectly roasted salmon with horseradish-dill sauce; and juicy, seared lemon-thyme chicken served with a crock of pan drippings. For a couple of extra bucks, add the thick fries with spicy ketchup or a heap of seared brussels sprouts jazzed up with pancetta. Pro tip: Park in the large Menil lot off of Alabama and call the restaurant to have your order delivered to your car.
