Dining Out: Tree Bistro

Last week was my bff Cari's birthday. Living on a budget can get tough especially with all of the great restaurants in New York City but I am lucky to have a great group of adventurous friends always looking to share dishes and try out new foods.

After making a reservation for 7 at Tree Bistro I proceeded to look over the menu and think about who would share what.

I was in luck. We started the meal with two orders of Grilled Flatbread duck confit, caramelized onions, goat cheese, fresh orange segments, and plum balsamic reduction which was absolutely delicious as well as one order of Fried Oysters.

While I did not get pictures of all of the dishes since the food was so good it went quickly the following entrees were also enjoyed:

Seared Sea Scallops lemon butter, cracked pepper, frisee, bacon, almond, sherry vinaigrette
Seared Salmon lemon dill aioli, red onion and red pepper daikon slaw
Steak Frites sliced hanger steak, pomme frites, and horseradish butter
Chicken Florentine spinach, ricotta, and pinenut stuffing, roasted fingerling potatoes, and garden pea puree

And my main course:
Monkfish parsnip puree, red pepper relish, brussels sprout leaf salad

Each dish was cooked to perfection and had such great flavors. The scallops and salmon were cooked to perfection, the chicken and its sides were a perfect match, the steak was the perfect pink in the center with delicious friens and the brussel sprout salad with the monkfish was fantastic!

To top it off the ambiance of the restaurant was great. While inside it seems like a small space, the back opens up to a large spacious garden perfect for a summer night!! I look forward to going back to Tree Bistro for many occasions to come.
