If you’re celebrating Restaurant Week, with its series of specially priced meals at a host of eateries across the city, then you may want to consider the four-course special dinner at Tost Bistro, 14415 Blanco Road.
The dinner menu begins with a choice of crab cake with red cabbage slaw over creamed corn (with a rich chipotle mayo on the side) or succulent Kurobata pork belly with kimchi. Second course is a choice of fresh soup (vegetable with summer corn the night we visited) or a spectacular salad with watermelon, heirloom tomatoes, blue cheese and garlic croutons.
The main course is a choice of the fish of the day or braised short ribs that fell apart at the touch of a fork plated with mashed potatoes and fresh pickles. The evening is capped off with beignets and a chocolate dipping sauce.
The cost is $35 for the meal, plus the restaurant has a series of wine specials each evening.
