Tonight I checked out Tidbit Bistro with Lauren, Gio and John. Tidbit is on the very north end of Broadway in a space formerly occupied by Cassis and then XO Bistro. Gio and I used to frequent Cassis, and though I only dined at XO Bistro once I did enjoy the meal. Unfortunately, it closed before I got around to uploading my photos/posting a write up.
The interior space hasn’t changed, which is a good thing. It’s a small setting, but fun lighting and intimate tables. Our server was very nice, friendly, and attentive. He also made a good wine recommendation, a reasonably priced Grüner Veltliner that as a bonus arrived in a 1L bottle! Unfortunately the food was on the whole unremarkable :(
Given the tapas-heavy menu with four people, I was able to sample a broad array of plates. The best items we had were the Crespelle (crepes filled with mushrooms and a mix of melted mozzarella, goat cheese, blue cheese, and béchamel) and the Potato Crocché (fried whipped potato-filled "poppers").
The Crostino con Prosciutto and Papas Dulces (sweet potato fries) were decent. Next time I would pass on the paella, the sauteed prawns, and the albondigas (lamb meatballs).
Overall Tidbit is a fine place to stop for a glass of wine or to sample one of their many *cellos, but I wouldn’t arrive hungry.
