Although Bistecca belongs to the Dining Concept group just like Blue Smoke Bar-B-Que, the differences can be quite significant in terms of ... everything, in a positive way of course. It was for lunch and the place was filled with natural sun light and a very clean yet contemporary decor.
The wall fixtures gave me a true feeling that I am in side a butcher house.One thing that caught my attention was how they assign a staff or most likely it was the chef right in front of the serving table sampling the food right before sending it off for diners. It was a minor touch but made a world of differences in terms of dining experience. I am sure a lot of restaurant do that as well but perhaps behind the kitchen? the fact that I can see it happening made me happy. Maybe it was too hooked onto those cooking shows that I see chefs doing that all the time.
As part of our lunch set, a salad bar buffet was included. I did not go crazy on that because the selection wasn't very wide but good enough as starter during a weekday lunch.
Our friend D ordered the burger with bacon, I dared not to ask him for a bite because I was pretty sure he was quite hungry that day. I really wanted to take out that bacon all my myself!!!
S and I ordered the Hanger Steak which was served in a wooden cut board. Wow! Perfect center, Med Rare as requested! I cannot say it melted in my mouth but it was juicy and tender, and very beefy in flavor! Thumbs up! I think I need to come back soon to try their dinner.
I ordered an espresso at the end of the meal but it was SO watery! I had to return it for a slightly better one. I think they need to really work on the coffee. My friend D who ordered the espresso as well cannot agree with me more on this part. We ended up having another cup of espresso somewhere else!
