I decided to go on an impromptu date with my man to Bistro 61. At a glance, it's perfect for date night. Cute decor, candlelight, very cozy. However, there were three large parties in the restaurant that were so incredibly loud that we could not hear each other unless we were shouting. They were also playing a top hits of the 00's playlist? Kind of weird for an "upscale" French place.
The saving grace of this place is their mussels. 100%. My god they were good. We got the ones that were in the mustard cream sauce. I don't even like mussels that much, but I'm salivating just thinking of them...note that the waiter took away the incredible sauce at the bottom before we finished! Bummer.
For the main course I had gotten the half chicken with veggies and potatoes. Flavorful, but a little dry. My date got the lamb burger, that was perfectly cooked, but lacked anything particularly special.
I would say the only thing on the menu worth the money is the mussels, and if I were to return I would go solely for them. Not the best, but also not the worst.
