This past Friday I had the pleasure of doing lunch with a friend of mine, Vanessa K. I had the pleasure of meeting her on a photo shoot about a year ago with the Women’s Director, Daphne at our church. She & I and have been friends ever since. We have been trying to set up a day to do lunch and finally this Friday worked out perfectly.
We decided on Bistro Byronz. Bistro Byronz has been opened for about a year or two now. Bistro Byronz is a little neighborhood bistro where friends and families can come together for a French flavor and a lot of Louisiana spice.
Bistro is defined as a neighborhood meeting place that people meet for either brunch, lunch or dinner to gather day or night to relax, enjoy amazing conversation and food at a reasonable price.
The restaurant has a very nice decor. Cute with the black and white theme and homey atmosphere. We felt right at home when we arrived at our table.
The menu items offered homemade food items like savory soups, hearty salads and delicious entrees.
We started with the three cheese chips. The chips were homemade chips fried golden brown, topped with homemade cheese sauce, shredded cheddar cheese and shredded monterey cheese, melted and topped with parsley. This dish was awesome. Such an easy, yet delicious Hors’Doeuvres, this would make a great snack for football season. Yum.
Vanessa ordered the Chicken salad. The salad was made with a bed of shredded lettuce topped with chicken salad, almonds, cranberries and tomatoes and lemon honey mustard salad dressing served with garlic bread. Her salad looked delicious. I did have a taste of the chicken salad and I must say that it was seasoned very well. She said that the salad and dressing was superb.
I decided on the special of the day as you can see the special is listed above, Tilapia with a watermelon salsa. The dish was amazing. Omg. It did not disappoint. I have never had a watermelon salsa, but it was oh so good. I will be attempting to duplicate that at home. If you have never had watermelon salsa topped on Tilapia, you owe it to yourself to try it.
My dish was so pretty and very colorful. The Tilapia was grilled and seasoned to perfection. Then topped with the watermelon salsa that consisted of chopped watermelon, diced granny smith apples, cilantro and jalapeno peppers diced. The dish had awesome flavor. The watermelon salsa with the fish gave the dish a sweet & spicy flavor. Amazing dish. The fish & salsa with the chips was quite tasty as well. Such an awesome dish, I was not disappointed at all!
Overall our experience at Bistro Byronz was top notch. The service was dynamic, the atmosphere made us feel right at home and the food was flawless. We were thoroughly pleased with our dining experience.
Bistro Byronz is a great place to dine whether its to hangout with your girlfriends or a date night with your honey. There is something on the menu to accommodate everyone. I will say I don’t remember seeing a kids menu so I am not sure if they had one. The prices are reasonably priced so if you bring your little ones it shouldn’t be overly expensive.
Bistro Byronz is located at 2605 Kaliste Saloom, 988-1032. The restaurant is opened Monday-Thursday 11am-9pm, Friday-Saturday 11am-10pm & Sunday 11am-2pm.
