Supper at the Sidewalk Bistro in Piermont


I had an early dinner at the Sidewalk Bistro in Piermont a few weeks back, and quite enjoyed my meal. The weather was perfect and the food — while not knock-you-down crying — was tasty: simple and good and just what you need on a weeknight in summer. This couple was enjoying the ambiance:

I went to dinner with my grandmother, who loves to order a burger. She also loves to order it well done.

To chef Alain Eigenmann’s credit, it wasn’t cooked to death. Even though it satisfied my grandmom being “well done,” it was still juicy.

I love that there’s rosé on the menu:

My husband got the chicken. It, too, was juicy, and the tomato and pesto sauce was good.

But I do have one complaint: the grill marks are so heavy handed they give the chicken a burnt and acrid taste. The fries were crispy on the outside, soft on the inside. Just the way they should be.

My Alsatian pizza:

Good and bacon-y. My Caesar:

Perfectly fine. Our view:

And the creme brulee my grandmom insisted we take for dessert:

It was very creamy with a bit of orange from grand marnier. Very nice — just like the evening.
