We happened upon the Bistro after a walk along the Petaluma waterfront. Hoped goat/ mutton would be on the menu - but their goats are apparently of the live, cheese producing variety. Amusing art depicting happy, comical goats adorns the walls. And though none were served up here as originally envisioned, I didn't miss it. The wife likes seafood, I'm all red meat - ribs, mutton, steak & chops. But, I have to say, the seafood here, was the star. That, and the great service.
The chef stepped outside where we were reading the bistro's specials board, and in the style of the lowest pressure carnival barker pitch ever, gently lured us with tales of delectable delights to be experienced just inside the doors . . . ). At his recommendation, we started with Oven Roasted Prawns. Served in a shallow ceramic dish, the prawns were perfection - butter, wine and garlic, and just the right texture in the prawns, with bits of the crisp bread crumbs atop a small amount of creamy melted mozzarella. I don't even like prawns, but this dish, in it's simplicity was the peak of prawn culinary expression - in flavor, in textures, in presentation. The colorful Farmer's Market salad with finely 'mandolined' strings of beet and carrot, fresh greens, chevre and a sweet/light black raspberry dressing (with pleasantly low acidity) was refreshing and delicious. The Cioppino Linguini was a nice switch up on one of the wife's favorites. There are lots of gluten free choices - gluten free pasta & desserts - even gluten free red velvet cake. The fully loaded gluten-laden carrot cake was more of a spiced carrot cake, more cinnamon, clove and other spices than carrot-ty, and with more of a cream frosting than the more common cream cheese one. It was served with an amazing house made caramel sauce. The wife was so taken by the caramel sauce, she wondered if it might come with a syringe next time.
