I have been going to Fire and Oak for a couple of years now and I am always impressed with the creativity and variety on the menu. I have always loved the tuna flatbread and the sushi, but they also have tasty truffle fries and salads.

During my last visit they offered a specials menu that was new to me, including Tuna Tartar. Just look at it! It’s almost too pretty to eat. Almost:)

The dish is served with fresh tuna, scallions, caviar, cucumbers, sweet soy sauce and some type of spicy mayonnaise sauce artistically drizzled over the dish.

It was aesthetically and tastefully created to perfection.

About a month ago Danny and I went to Bistro 55 in Rochelle Park. Bistro is a part of the restaurant group that he works for, South City Group. Anyway, we go there occassionally for some awesome oysters and appetizers and a couple of drinks. This night in particular, we tried just about everything on the menu! The manager Jess always has the best suggestions and can pair any food item with one of the numerous beers on tap they have to offer.

One of the best features of Bistro 55 and what really sets it apart from the competition is their incredible beer selection. Everything from Ommegang Witte to Sixpoint Bengali Tiger to Dogfish IPA. They change their draft beer seasonally as well so you always have a great selection of oktoberfests and ciders. The other cool thing is you can order a flight of beer and choose 4 for just $11!

So this picture is the Peach Habanero Glazed Wings. WOW! so good. They definitely have a kick to them but the combination of the sweet with spicy is right on.
