Nordstrom has the right idea marketing to the customer who love their stores and I am a fan or the food they offer. So to say I was pleased when they landed at the Town Center Shopping area would be putting it mildly.   I have eaten at Bistro N in the Galleria, Huston TX, Cafe Bistros in San Francisco’s Union Sq. location.  This location holds it own for design ambiance and food quality. On the upper lever with a commanding view,  I was knocked out to read the cost for adding the full service bar and craft cocktails and cafe was like 800.000.  Open design, with a gassed in kitchen allows the diners to see most of the meal prep, young cooks crafting beautiful dishes aimed to please.  I was more interested in looking at the beautiful people enjoying an equally beautiful day while they gazed out the large glass windows. Menu is very diverse, offering something for everyone, at a reasonable cost.     We  started with the Blueberry and Lavender Martinis  that are so spectacular we had several more  during dinner, plus a magically layered drink called the Corpse Reviver, a combination of red wine, lemon juice and chambord. Food wise we  ordered the Arugula Salad  and Prosciutto Pizza. I have eaten this particular dish in the past and it’s one of my favorites.   The crust was perfect, thin, chewy flavorful and covered with ample amounts of high-grade Prosciutto, plus a healthy portion of the lightly dressed arugula in the middle which adds a new peppery dimension to the pizza, our other friend had the Grilled Salmon & Fungi Risotto  I did not taste the fish but the presentation is stunning and risotto perfect.  A hint of lemon only enhanced its flavor.  We finished up sharing a well put together apple crisp with a healthy serving of vanilla ice cream.  Tasty but not what I would call a “crisp”  Never the less there was none left, so that speaks well for the dish.   Service is as expected in a restaurant of this caliber, our server was well versed in all items on the menu, made the time to answer our questions, was interactive and attentive without being intrusive.  always a plus.   This restaurant certainly deserves a visit if your shopping or not.
