Cuvee Bistro is simply, amazing.
Since we do have the teen people with us on vacation, we don’t want to go all out with the fine dining. (we’ll save that for when we’re solo vacationers…) Plus, the kids definitely wouldn’t appreciate it like we can. So, we go to Cuvee’s (awesome!) happy hour – 5PM – 9PM (every night). That’s a whole lotta hours for innovative, delicious 1/2 priced food and drinks. Don’t let the price point of the menu scare you – if you want to give it a whirl, start with the Happy Hour!
The bar area is huge – lots of bar seats and high top tables. Our group of 5 had no trouble finding a spot to fit in.
I love the ambiance of Cuvee, the service is always out of this world and the food…well – I’ll SHOW you.
Oops. That’s a drink – a lemon drop martini and it was mine. Yum. How cool is the silver stemware?
Smoked Tomato and Shrimp Soup
They put the shrimp at the bottom of the empty bowl and add the hot soup (from a pretty silver pot) directly in – those shrimp stay tender!
Seafood Chowder (soup of the day)
I’m in love with the tomato soup but I took a sip of the husband’s – um, this one was even better! Depth of serious flavor and had a kick to it.
Caesar Salad with Eggplant Croutons
Asian Spring Rolls
Best dipping sauce EVER. I could drink it.
Beef Quarters (I think that’s the fancy word for sliders)
I don’t, personally, trust any pizza that doesn’t have sauce on it but our 2nd daughter for the week loved it. 😉
Spicy Garlic Fries
You know how my husband loves EVERY fry that he comes across? Well, he’s wrong – not every fry IS perfect. This one…is. Cuvee also makes their own ketchup. I’m usually not a fan of anything not Heinz but this stuff is just incredible. Even my son (super picky pants) loves this ketchup. The fries are crispy, garlicky and have just a hint of spice – fry heaven.
And, the most amazing flatbread/pizza/whatever you want to call it…
Homemade Bison Sausage
Just by looking at that picture, you’re not capable of fully embracing just how awesome that pizza really is. It’s cracker thin, perfect sauce, crumbled bison, jalapenos, mozzarella and fontina. Every other pizza should be jealous when they see this one.
THAT, ladies and gentlemen, was a perfect meal. It’s food we all know but creatively twisted into something special.
I might be in love with Chef Tim Creehan.
I know it’s not on the beach. You don’t get an ocean view. (Nor do you have to contend with bugs, seagulls and crying kids!) You don’t get a free frisbee with your meal. But, this is a culinary experience that you won’t forget.
