Small plates from chef Andre Christopher (Grocery Bistro).

Our Review

Modeled after a Paris bistro, Bistro Dre is warm and charming, but the menu is a bit of a hodgepodge, confusingly divided into categories including "vegetables/salads/pastas/flatbreads" (Belgian fries, "beet tartar," grilled French beans, mac 'n' cheese, spinach salad, and two flatbreads), "pork/chicken" (chicken and waffles, bacon-wrapped smoked pork tenderloin, grilled hanger steak, lamb T-bones), and "seafood" (fish-and-chips). And why, if everything is served "shared plate style," were we not brought any plates? The food itself is just as confusing: beet tartare was two whole medium-size beets, and cheese fondue came with six grapes, six apple cubes, and just seven croutons, though the waitress did bring additional bread without being asked. Grilled French beans with blue cheese grits and lemon-pepper croutons failed to combine into any coherent whole, and bacon-wrapped pork tenderloin accompanied by grilled carrots, undercooked broccoli, and nicely garlicky mashed potatoes went mostly uneaten, the meat bone-dry. Dessert, a dense, fudgy brownie served hot with white-chocolate-peppermint ice cream, was one of the few high points. With it, we finally got plates for sharing.
