Bistro 110

Bistro 110

We’re perfecting the art of being “restaurant refugees.”

This time we fled our original restaurant choice because it was a madhouse. Tammy and I had planned to go to RL, the snazzy restaurant attached to the Ralph Lauren store on Michigan Avenue. But when we got there, people were literally pouring out the door and pushing their way to the bar in a frenzied Friday night way that made the noise-level astronomical.

We were tired. We were hungry. And we wanted to sit down and eat… RIGHT THEN!

So we decided that Ralph could wait — he was doing just fine without us — and taking our names off the reservation list, we wandered across the street to Bistro 110.

Bistro 110 is a place I’d passed a thousand times, but I’d never eaten there. It deserves a second glance, and it was just what we were looking for.

    You forgot to mention the accessibility issue here — the revolving door collapse to let wheelchairs and baby carriages through. If you can’t manage to catch the manager’s eye, it’s unclear how you’d get them to tweak the doors for you, though.

    Passed this place several hundred times but never gone in. Thanks for the info! Might be a nice place to stop for wine before or after a movie.

    Bridget, Tammy, Great reviews!
    Observation:
    I think the grading tends to trend your individual personality.
    Bridget, you give better grades; Tammy, are you hiding a knuckle rapping ruler back there? 🙂
    Suggestions for consideration:
    – More wine glass clinking. 🙂
    – Add a monthly unusual ethnic eats place.
    – Add an occasional cheap eats dive.
    – Nomination for most delightful dessert.
    – Nomination for best booze.
    – Nomination for most peculiar appetizer.
    – Nomination for most fragrantly enticing entree.

    Ah, Bistro 110…haven’t been there in years. Used to love the gratin dauphinois. Thanks for bringing back some good memories.
