On Wednesday night, Void was lucky enough to be invited to the new menu tasting at the always-classy Bistro Aix.

If you’ve never been there before, the menu is fabulous. But like all restaurants, there’s always room to make good, great. And the main focus for the night’s festivities was to try out the incredible additions to the already superb menu.

Some of the foods we sampled included sliders, tomato soup shooters with grill cheese, muscles in a garlic sauce, flat-bread pizza and more.

Our personal favorites were the San Marco drink with a hint of cucumber made with all local ingredients, the Bananas Foster, and hand-rolled Gnocchi with braised Oxtail. Makes my mouth water just typing that sentence out.

If you haven’t been over to Bistro Aix lately, now would be a good time to do so. The staples of the former menu are there but now they’ve added some truly outstanding dishes that are definitely worth a try.
