Today we had lunch at the newest restaurant in town which took over the vacancy left by Weia Teia when they closed this past August. The spot is now home to the Strange Bird Bistro which identifies itself as “a global eclectic mix.” The interior is much the same as the previous restaurant but the food is a ‘fusion’ of a little Asian, a little Mexican, a little Cuban, some Eastern European, and some American comfort food with a twist!.
See if some of these menu names whet your appetite: sushi deviled eggs and chicken pot stickers, which Joe and I shared as appetizers, roasted brussels sprouts salad, Korean meatloaf sandwich, Cuban citrus mojo pork, sriracha macaroni & cheese, thai coconut shrimp cakes just to name a few. For our lunch today along with the two appetizers,we also enjoyed the soup of the day which was mushroom bisque and was very good. Next week after the movie at the Apollo we will be checking out the dinner menu and in the weeks to come we will scout out the sunday brunch menu. I see on that menu is a bacon jam and grilled cheese. Sounds yummy!
