Sunday Supper at Bistro

Sunday, 6 May 2012
A friend and I had a lovely dinner at Bistro by the Tracks last Sunday evening. The Executive Chef Chester Miller, offers a three course Sunday Supper Menu that changes weekly and is inspired by his travels.

Our first course included the Blue Crab Stack (mango, avocado, tropical fruit vinaigrette, macadamia nuts) and Filet Bites (ricotta gnocchi, mushroom jus, spinach, crimini mushrooms). The gnocchi was to die for and wow - the addition of macadamia nuts to the crab dish gave an amazing flavor.

The main course was tasty as well. I ordered the Smoked Duck Pasta (linguini, wild mushrooms, pistachio sauce and spiced cherries. Todd had the Seared Pork Tenderloin (asian glaze, shitake capellini and pickled ginger). 

The dishes were artfully presented and the taste combinations creative. I liked the duck dish but the sauce was almost too thick for me. The pork was tender and perfectly prepared. 

Even though we had no room for dessert, the choices were interesting so of course we went for it. I ordered the Fudge Cake Sunday [sic] (sea salt caramel, vanilla ice cream and peanuts). Todd chose the Toasted Almond Creme Brule. They were both delicious! 

I love to eat great food and have only been to dinner at the Bistro one other time. Mom and I enjoyed a wine dinner there last year but the place is a must for Knoxville folks. The service is impeccable, the atmosphere can be romantic and the wine list is interesting. Great evening!
