This bistro is a contemporary style, BYOB restaurant, with good service and food, but very little was excellent about the experience. The service was friendly and helpful, but it was slower than hoped for. The appetizers were good but not great. The best one was...More

Our dinner last night at Avenue B was amazing. The meatloaf dish was seasoned perfectly, cooked to one's taste and served on a bed of delicious mashed potatoes. The top of the dish was piled high with thin thin crispy swirls of fries ( ?)...More

Good atmosphere, tasty food. The pork belly lettuce wraps (as an appetizer) raised expectations: it was cooked to perfection and seasoned with ginger, peanuts, and understated pickles on top, crisp lettuce rounding out the experience. Both chicken and braised pork shank entrees followed suit -...More
