Delicious dinner at the 2nd Street Bistro

Absolutely Delicious!

The Bistro is Back! 2nd St. Bistro that is, and the food is amazing. We have dinned there now a few times and have enjoyed every meal. Some of the items we have tried are the Bistro Salad, lettuce wraps, and salmon dinner. We decided to have dinner there on Saturday night and were glad to see they were open. The owner, Tony, told us about the specials and we had excellent service from our waiter, Daniel, who was very pleasant and attentive. I chose the Steak Chimichurri. Chef Alex, created this awesome perfectly cooked steak and paired it with a seafood kabob, rice pilaf, and black beans with salsa. The kabob included grilled veggies, shrimp, salmon and mahi mahi. The steak was covered in a tasty green sauce and was one of the tastiest dishes I have ever eaten. Susie had the Mahi Mahi with a Macadamia
nut crust and a bowl of Chicken vegetable soup that she raved over, saying it was perfect! After finishing this meal, I joked that I could eat the exact same thing again. We had to ask Tony where he found his Chef. Alex came from The City Broiler which closed it's doors in Chino Hills. Man this guy can cook! Tony also said they just installed a grill, so we were lucky to try out Chef Alex's grillin' magic.
If you haven't been to the 2nd St. Bistro lately, do yourself a favor and try the Steak Chimichuri.
