Bistro One’s “Braised Pork Belly”

Location: Broadway

Rating: 6.5 (out of 10)

Price: $9

The Skinny: Bistro One is kinda cool in that it’s fairly unexpected.  You’ll find it on the no-so-trendy part of Broadway, past a furnishings store, and sandwiched between a Spicy Pickle and a Piano warehouse.  But I like that.  I like a place that says “we’re going to open up anywhere we damn well please, but our food will be so good you’ll find us”.  And it’s apparently working, as I was lucky to wait only 20 minutes to get a seat on an average night.

They do a lot of interesting things for a bistro.  Wide ranging things, trendy things, classic things, etc.  In the “trendy things” category is their “Braised Pork Belly” which is plated quite nicely, and stacked together with sweet potato gnocchi and roasted apples.  The pork belly itself was decent – fatty at one end, meaty at the other and caramelized on the outside.  And, as you can imagine, the sweet potato gnocchi and apples really sweetened things up and blended nicely with the fatty juices of the pork.  I can’t say it was a favorite dish, but it was a nodding head “ok”.
