Hello Foodie Friends,
I am here to dispel the myth that hotel restaurants are sub par to stand alone restaurants or really just somewhere tourists go to out of sheer convenience. Many of these restaurants fly under the local foodie radar, and I will be the first to admit, that that was the case with me. But thanks to a recent invite to sample the new menu at Bistro Ten Zero One, under the direction of Executive Chef Christian Quiñones, I have a new respect for hotel restaurants…especially this one. Before our tasting journey began, we had the opportunity to walk the grounds with the Director of Food & Beverage, Jimmy Alexiou. The outdoor space was very zen-like and they were in the process of expanding their garden. The herbs grown there are used to accent their cocktails and dishes.
Our first course was a tasting of the Bistro’s most popular appetizers served with a glass of La Marca Prosecco:
PULLED PORK TACOS / pineapple-papaya compote, spicy mayo
BEEF SLIDERS / bourbon glaze, pancetta, bibb lettuce
AHI TUNA POKE / avocado, edamame, soy truffle dressing
LOCAL ORGANIC HEIRLOOM TOMATO SALAD / feta, garden mint, basil powder, red sorrel, white balsamic vinaigrette
The tomatoes were from Farmhouse Tomatoes in Loxahatchee and the red sorrel came from their garden.
PAN SEARED SCALLOPS / green pea-asparagus risotto with a homemade basil oil.
The wines were a perfect complement to the dishes.
CHOCOLATE MOLTEN CAKE / vanilla bean ice cream with candied walnuts, fresh seasonal berries with red sorrel
Bistro Ten Zero One is located inside the Marriott West Palm Beach, 1001 Okeechobee Blvd. bistro1001.com
