The British have always been about conquest, whether gaining new territories through occupation, or relentlessly attempting to sleep with your girlfriend until she tells them she's a dental hygienist. Getting all imperialistic with food & bev, London Bistro
Colonizing the space that previously housed Misto and Chiloe, London's a grub-tastic ultra lounge owned by a NY-born former London gentleman, with a 40-seat interior featuring sheer white hanging drapes over shiny brown vinyl benches, and a giant glow-in-the-dark Union Jack on the back wall, plus two fluffy red couches in front of a glass garage door opening to a 20-seat patio surrounded by tan stones, even though Keith Richards should probably be staying out of the sun at this point. The culinary onslaught beginning with farm-fresh apps like crispy "British Airways" wings (in Spicy Mangoroo Glaze, BBQ, or original), blackened shrimp w/ garlic creamy grits & beurre blanc drizzle called "Soul 2 Soul", or "Oxford Samosas": two honey-glazed beef pockets, served w/ summer dip, salad, and at least...one extra comma. Grander grub includes dishes like "The Pied Piper" (chicken marsala w/ sautéed spinach gnocchi), "Royal Marine" (alfredo topped w/ roasted red peppers & grilled or blackened salmon), and "Lords of the Ring" jambalaya with shrimp, crawfish, & pork sausage; for sandwiches and burgers w/ steak fries, there's remoulade-sauced Fish or sautéed pork sausage Bangers, "The Liverpool Turf" turkey burger, or an 8oz Angus chuck patty w/ veggies & chili mayo on toasted loaf called the "Bully Beef & Chips", which will shake you down for the very lunch money you plan to buy it with
LB's lounge stays open 'til 2:30, with each night boasting a different theme, like "Dinner & A Movie" Mondays, a comedy/talk show filming on Wednesdays, and College Football Thursdays w/ game-watching & trivia, proving that the Brits have fallen victim to at least one American conquest not named Becca.
