Bistronomy By Nico
The gist: Dominique Chantepie and Nico Romo—of hyped Shem Creek oyster bar Nico’s fame—paired up to open Bistronomy, an airy French bistro on Spring Street, with a focus on high quality ingredients and innovative techniques. Expect French fare with a modern take, in all the right ways—and ambiance that’ll make you feel like you’re perched in a Parisian bistro. Open for dinner and Sunday brunch.
The food: Goat Cheese Spring Rolls, vibrant Tuna Crudo, Beef Carpaccio, and Tomato and Panko-fried Mozzarella are excellent ways to start, but definitely save room for the mains. And by mains, we’re talking Duck à l'Orange, Bouillabaisse, and a standout Gruyere Burger with Foie Gras. And don’t leave without an order of the Escargot Dumplings—the combination of candied ginger, pistachio, browned garlic butter, and cilantro will not soon be forgotten. Brunch also makes an appearance, with a playful menu of cocktails, tartines (don’t sleep on the Beef Bourguignon and French Onion takes), classic French staples, and more on Sundays from 10:30 am to 2 pm.
