“He who distinguishes the true savor of his food can never be a glutton; he who does not cannot be otherwise.” ~ Henry David Thoreau
e-po-lu: sumptuous food, banquet or feast.
I finally know what the sin of gluttony feels like. Or, rather – what it tastes like.
It tastes like e-po-lu bistro’s Manila clams with Parsley, Chervil, Chives, Garlic & Pinot Gris, plus a side of toasted bread to sop up the sauce. Oh, and a side order of sauteed green beans with garlic. lemon and chili to add to the flavor-fest. So simple. So delicious. So sumptuous. A true banquet of the senses – and stomach.
Meat eaters – my partner-in-crime swears by the Braised Beef Short Rib with Garlic Mashed Potato, Arugula & Demi Glace. Not one succulent morsel left on his plate, either.
Wines by the glass or bottle include some reasonably-priced Old World selections, as well as familiar top-shelf New world pours with prices to match.
Warm, attentive staff, soft lighting and cozy bistro seating help set the stage for ongoing crime of self-indulgence. And, like any self-respecting bistro, this venue accomodates families, foodies and francophiles alike. Proprietary parking on the side ensures a seamless, hassle-free dining experience. Sinning never tasted so good.
