BISTRO BORDEAUX – Has closed. So sad, we did enjoy going here. 618 Church St, (between Orrington Ave & Chicago Ave) Evanston, IL 60201, (847) 424-1483, lebistrobordeaux.com
Q-Tips say: Good drinks, service, wine. A lot has changed since our last visit. Last year they offered BYOB. They still offer BYOB but there is a $20.00 corkage fee. Went with another couple and came for the Soft Shell Crab special. The Q’s shared the Steak Tartare – we were not impressed – very fatty and a small portion. Mr. Q had the Soft Shell Special and enjoyed it. Mrs. Q had the Sirloin Steak which came with fries. It was nothing special – over-cooked, probably will never order it again. Last year we used a Groupon. Had a 4 course meal w/ wine pairings and could not stop raving about the food – wanted to lick the place. This year it seems that things have changed. Mrs. Q says:Oh well, so many restaurants, so little time.
