Between Friday morning and Sunday evening, I ate and/or drank at 10 different spots; Martin's, 611, Julia's, Il Bistro, Purr, Manray, Broadway Grill, Bleu Bistro, Paramount Club and Mexico. Can you guess which was my favorite? Il Bistro.

I love that place. This time I only had appetizers. We had crostini w/ goat cheese, roasted garlic and basil, an antipasti plate and the calamari. Il Bistro has one of the best calamaris in town, not your garden varietal deep fried squid rings, but really good sauteed calamari in a broth that is super--especially for dipping the bread they serve with the appetizers. I had a beer followed by a margarita (trying to cure the old age hangover White Pepper mentioned earlier). I'd never had a margarita there, but I could tell he was the type of bartender could be trusted. I was right.

I also recommend their full dinner. It is not cheap but if your going out for a nice meal it's well worth it. Ambiance also gets two thumbs up, it is in the market but doesn't have any hint of a tourist vibe.

P.S. They serve food until midnight on weekdays and until 1am on Friday and Saturday.
