Bar + Bistro @ The Arts Factory

For my first First Friday experience (finally!), I first went to Bar + Bistro for a birthday dinner:


Everything on the menu were enticing to me!  My friend and I wanted to try the same exact items (Grilled Fish Tacos, Spiced Salmon Salad, and 4 Cheese Mac), what a coincidence haha:


Since we didn't want to order the same foods we made a compromise.  I got the Grilled Fish Tacos (tapas style):

Mahi mahi fish, jicama slaw, mango salsa, & tomatillo sauce
And Reggie got the Spiced Salmon Salad:

Organic greens, tomatoes, pecans, cured ricotta, & citrus dressing
The birthday lady got Tempura Alcachofa (there were more pieces).  The tempura was perfectly puffy to me and the curry aioli had a strong curry taste.  So if you enjoy curry, this dish is for you:

Long stemmed artichoke hearts in tempura and curry aioli as a dip
Cecilia got Donut Churros in substitution of a birthday cake.  This was a interesting twist because they were softer and moist than the typical long churro:

Topped with cinnamon sugar and comes with a Spanish chocolate dip
