Bistro 536 (Long Point Road)

Where are we going to eat after church? Let's try Bistro 536, there's a nice little description of it in the City Paper.  What do we have here? The place seems somewhat dimmed on a Sunday afternoon.  The menu has a plethora of dishes that sound good.  Tough choice.  How about you get one, I get something different, and we'll share.
Breaded Flounder with Grits and Creole Sauce

Breakfast Quesadilla (scrambled eggs, sharp cheddar, black beans, chipotle sour cream)

It's so obvious when food is made from fresh ingredients.  The fried flounder was mild with crispy batter, not too thin, and not too thick that it takes over the entire fish.  The grits and creole sauce went perfectly with the fish.  The sauce had a white wine component to it, which made it even more savory.  The quesadillas had a nice blend of scrambled eggs and cheese (soft) with the toasted tortilla.
The Bad: The setting is a little dark, but would be good for ambiance for dinner.
The Good: Home runs for both the dishes we ordered.  And also, cinnamon rolls pre-meal were so soft and warm, one really wasn't enough. Maybe I should put this in the bad section.
In Conclusion: Great food! And the menu for lunch and dinner look delicious! Could possibly become a honey hole.
