Sometimes, you really should listen to other people’s advice. For months, my friends have been insisting that I try Blue Dahlia Bistro, and I finally had the opportunity last Friday. This gem of a restaurant is tucked away on East 11th, 1115 E. 11th, near Primzie Osteria, the Longbranch Inn and the Victory Grill.
The first thing that struck me about Blue Dahlia is that, with both a front and back patio, there are plenty of places to enjoy your meal al fresco. I love discovering a new place where you can sit outside and enjoy a meal.
But, they really had me when I opened the menu
. Tucked among the listing for tartines (open-faced sandwiches), salads and breakfast offerings was their mission
. A mission! I’m a sucker for someone with a mission, particularly when their mission includes serving organic products whenever possible and making choices that have a positive impact on our community and environment. I love it!
The food was delicious, the atmosphere was inviting and by eating at Blue Dahlia I am supporting a business that wants to do good in our lovely home. Returning to Blue Dahlia will be an easy choice.
