StarStraf Posted April 25, 2010 Share Posted April 25, 2010 We have a new place open up close to us so gave it a try. Yves' Bistro at 235 Swamp Fox Road in Alexandria is in the Hoffman Center near the AMC theater. They are open late (10pm weeknights, 11:30 weekends) and also have breakfast. We went Friday night and took advantage of their early dinner special (Before 6:30 buy one entree and second entree is free). The place is small but set up so dining is private with two levels with a wall between them, and there is a bakery glass case on one side. We had cocktails (well made) and a duck pate appetizer to start. I had the steak tartar with pome frites (isn't that just a fancy way to say french fries - but WOW were they good) and Pooch had the lamb curry, both good though the lamb curry could use a bit more heat. Dessert I had the creme brulee and Pooch tried the cannoli (great shell but filling was only okay). Total bill was $60 before tip (remember we got one entree free) Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
