Bistro Twenty Two Ten
2210 4 Street SW
Lunch at my favorite restaurant today! So exciting! I've been looking forward to it for a while. Located in the Mission district, this stylish little bistro serves up some delicious French cuisine. The dining area is open with large windows to let in ample sunlight during the summertime. The decor is very simple while maintaining many of the original building details such as the tin ceiling and brick walls.
I had the daily soup; it was a tomato bisque with ratatouille served in it's very own ceramic cauldron. The freshly chopped ratatouille is a interesting contrast to the hot soup and the result was quite amazing! The natural taste of the vegetables really brings out the strong flavour of the tomato soup.
I also ordered the grilled caesar salad with chicken. It still surprise me every time because, unlike other places, the chef grills an entire uncut romaine heart and top it with creamy caesar dressing, bacon bits, grated parmesan cheese and grilled chicken. It's a little extra work on the part of the diner but it's oh so delicious since all the juice is trapped within the fibres of the romaine lettuce. The chicken was very tender. This is by far the best-est chicken caesar salad I've ever had in my life. 5 stars out of 5. The only thing that could top this would be the south western steak salad from Sonoma Market Cafe.
