Have you been Jonesing for cuisine prepared by genuine chefs like you have had elsewhere? Have you ever wanted to try fine cuisine but thought it out of your red-neck reach?

Well, folks, either way, your ship has definitely arrived.

Tonight, I had the exquisite pleasure of actually DINING at Bistro and Brew, located where the late Hot Skillets was the last to fail in that location.

I've opined more than once that the only way a restaurant would even survive - much less thrive - in that terrible location was if someone opened a restaurant that was so good that it became a destination restaurant rather than a spur of the moment place. These folks are that restaurant. Don't be surprised if they become such a destination that reservations might eventually be required.

I dropped $29.00 and a $5.00 tip in there tonight.
A bargain.

The iced tea was strong with a faint hint of a flavor which I think might have been jasmine. It was delicious.

The signature French onion soup was far-and-away the best I have EVER eaten. Unless you've been to Paris, my guess is you have never had French onion soup this good. Obviously homemade beef stock with just a hint of salt. No bouillion cubes there, I'll gaurontee. Thick, juicy onion slices - probably Vidalia. Good bread in soup. Cheese on top melted with a torch. Extraordinary.

The slab of filet of haddock was so large it had to be cut in half and stacked to fit plate.

It was delicately breaded in delicious be=read crumbs with just a hint of flavor from fresh Rosemary leaves mixed in. I believe it was pan fried in clarified butter until the bread crumbs were golden brown on both sides. It was cooked to perfection. Done but moist. It was so flavorful that to have used any of the provided tarter sauce would have been criminal.

It came with rice that was steamed to perfection then moistened a bit with some sort of a light, flavorful oil I was unable to identify. It was superb.

I added a side of fresh Brussels sprouts. They were prepared just the way my housekeeper does them. They were sautéed in bacon grease with bits of bacon until the natural sugars in the sprouts caramelized on the surface of the sprouts. You will agree that they are the best Brussel sprouts you have ever eaten - trust me.

For dessert, I had a huge piece of a fabulous cheesecake covered with a dark chocolate ganash and pecan pieces, served with a fresh, rich, dark roast coffee.

I fully intended eating about half of the slice and bringing the rest home. I just injected an extra 10 units of insulin to clear my head so I could write this.

Nothing hoity-toity about the place or the owner/ chef, Victoria, or her husband or her waitress or Chef John. You will think you are in just another ill-fated attempt at that location right up until you see the menu. That is your first clue. When your food arrives, you will be tempted to say, "Toto, I don't think were in Camden anymore."

Covites and unionist rednecks should feel equally at home. Albeit, the latter will be way more awed initially, but they will soon get used to really fine food.

Perfect for anniversaries, birthdays, put-on-the-dog-dates, etc. Get on over there. Casual dress.

By the way, Chef Victoria makes all the desserts from scratch.

That one huge, 5-6 inch high slice of cheesecake could have easily satisfied two little people. It was actually worth $6.99.

And no, I did not type "be=read crumbs." Look where the keys for that are relative to each other. Some son-of-a-bitch is actually changing my words as or after I type.

The service was prompt, friendly, and continuously attentive without being annoying.

The young lady graciously retrieved my reading glasses from the console in my van my when I realized I had forgotten them. She seemed personally proud and pleased when I complimented the food in response to her inquiries.

Victoria, et al, please ignore these cyber vandal idiots who attack me. If I could exterminate them, I would. Just ignore the vermin.

Well there you have it folks. Your tax dollars hard at work feeding an unproductive sloth. One, mind you who could find a job and be productive, if he was not lazy and finds and exploits every loophole he can so he lives off the government dime every chance he gets. Keep track, I am sure he will run for some office again soon. Political gadfly.

Well again we have a review by Jay on a local business dooming them to loose custom from local people simply because he recommends the place, go ahead and plan on a dismal failure thanks to his blathering your menu on this blog. As people have already indicated they will not come there due to his review and the off chance that he will be present when they arrive.

Memo to: Bistro and Brew

One of our representatives will be by soon to show you the big blue plastic traps we have available in case customer Moreno has another bowel disaster while frequenting your establishment. We also have a complete line of disinfectants and deodorizers some of our client restaurants use to process a booth or table previously occupied by a hygienically challenged patron. Also, you might want to invest in a currency/credit sanitizer to prevent the spread of bacteria and viruses deposited by the same individuals.

Congratulations, fool.

You were safe right up until you used my name. You are now in my "Actionable calumnies" file. I WILL be coming after you soon after my late father's house sells. See you in court.

Okay, it looks like they have plenty for the damned Yankees, but how about us locals?

Will they ever serve local haute'cuisine like "Possum belly bourguignon, road-kill a l'Orange, or chitlins flambe?

And the server went out to the van for you? Did you get the senior discount? Sounds like "A bargain" tip, you cheap m-effer.

Actually, I think he was referring to me.

Apparently, I did get the discount. I did not ask for it. The owner's husband told me he had given me a 10% discount when he handed me the check. Yeah, yeah, "payola." Drop dead, ass.

Now, my credit card receipt shows $29.81.

I tipped $5.00.

That's a 16.77% tip. I knew it was more than my usually carefully calculated 15%, but she was deserving.

If you tell me that you ALWAYS tip, much less tip more , you are a damned liar. Your demonstrated "character" asures me of that.

You will not find a waitress on the plant who can honestly tell you I stiffed her on a tip, you scumbag.
