SquareMeal Review of
“Fantastic, all day, every day”, sums up the local enthusiasm for Chez Bob – a trendy little eatery that aims to mix ‘New York-inspired culinary trends with a seasonally sourced menu’. Despite the French name tag, there’s barely a bourgeois riff in sight; instead the kitchen deals in “well-presented” plates of food loaded with ingredients from the world larder. Get started with Bob’s take on nachos, Korean BBQ chicken wings or some Cajun-spiced calamari with minted yoghurt dip before tackling a buttermilk chicken Kiev, spicy fajitas or grilled salmon fillet with fire-roasted corn, cherry tomato and basil salsa. Modish salads are also a feature, with lots of kale, ‘Goodness Greens’, quinoa and broccolini tossed into the mix, while flat-iron steaks, burgers and dogs point up the transatlantic theme. US and UK beers, decent global wines and “good service” complete the package in this colourfully decorated bistro with an amazing multi-coloured tiled floor.
