So you know that old saying- that Tuesday is the armpit of the week? Not exactly the nicest imagery I know, but to be frank- its pretty honest. Sure, Tuesday isn't Monday, but its not as good as Wednesday, or Thursday...and definitely not Friday. It's just sorta there. So what if there was something to make Tuesday just a little bit more exciting? How about a delicious food offering that happens every Tuesday, with tasty cocktails to accompany in an awesome, central location? Sounds like that could perk up an ordinary Tuesday right?
Starting tonight, January 22, and lasting through March, 2013 Bistro du Midi, the fabulous cafe with gorgeous views of Boston Public Gardens, is hosting Croque Tuesdays. What that means is that every Tuesday Executive Chef/Patner Robert Sisca will prepare a small selection of croques to be had in the downstairs bar area of the restaurant, each for just $5.00. Picture that, one of the swankier restaurants in town, offering a comforting, crisp, melted cheese temptation for just $5.00. Pair it with a cocktail designed by Beverage Director Todd Lipman and you have an evening that will chase any of the not quite mid week, winter doldrums away.
Just to get your whistle wet, Bistro du Midi is sending along one of their delicious cocktail recipes to be enjoyed at home- try this and you'll be running in for more!
