Village Bistro was long overdue for a write up. I have hit up every restaurant in the Rosslyn/Courthouse Shopping Center except for Village Bistro. Well let me tell you it was well worth the wait. I was extremely impressed with the quality of service and food at this little bistro. The menu selections were intriguing and offered a nice mix of cuisines. On the front page of their website they provide an explanation of the mix that I could not put in any better words.
Village Bistro is a little French, somewhat Italian, sort of American with East Indian Accents. It’s what used to be called continental, but it suffers from none of the usual continental restaurant flaws. Prices are modes and the food is charming, often original.
I took my father there for dinner on Friday to celebrate his promotion. We were both impressed. The inside of Village Bistro is small. It reminds me of a typical restaurant in rural Europe very small and family run. My father ordered the lamb sausage which was lam sausage grilled with spicy tomatoes and white beans. The small plate was not really that small and would definitely suffice for a meal at most restaurants. It was full of flavor and had a little kick to it which I love in my food. I had the poached salmon with cucumbers and dill sauce. It tasted so good. The salmon was poached perfectly and the cucumber and dill sauce added the perfect amount of flavor. The sauce was light but had a very fresh and clean taste to it. It came with vegetables and mashed potatoes which added to the freshness and enjoyment of my dish. I loved Village Bistro!
Village Bistro is often overlooked when dining in this shopping center full of good choices. It definitely held its own against Ray’s Hell Burger, Pho 75, and Guajillo. Village Bistro gives all these places some serious competition and it homier feel will hopefully let it stick around for a while.Share
