Restaurant Review, B A Bolton Hill Bistro

Name: B A Bolton Hill Bistro

Location: 1501 Bolton Street Baltimore, Maryland 21217 In a residential neighborhood of lovely large row homes. Just steps from the MICA and minutes from the inner harbor! Jon and I fell in love with the area so much that after our dinner we decided to walk around and dream about living there one day ;)

Prices: Our total bill was about $112 and we got one 8oz glass of white wine, 2 craft beers, tuna wonton appetizer, 2 entrees priced around $30, and the bread pudding dessert. Our appetizer was $13 and it was served with 3 wontons; I felt like for the price it should have been served with 4. 

Food: They bring fresh bread and olive oil to the table. The bread was so good, moist, and served warm but the olive oil had an odd flavor to us. The tuna wontons were nothing short of amazing... First there is a bed of seaweed salad and then 3 crispy wontons. On each wonton is a slice of tuna that was perfectly cooked and topped with wasabi aioli. Mmmm so good!

I got the swordfish entree which was a special that night. It was served on a bead of white beans in a roasted red pepper sauce with artichokes and topped with pesto. I'm not sure if you can tell from the picture but there are two nice sized pieces of fish on top of each other and it was enough for me to take home for lunch the next day.

Jon got the rock fish entree which was a special that night too.  D-e-l-i-c-i-o-u-s is all I can say. Like always, he picked the better entree.  Not that I didn't enjoy mine, but his just had the most amazing flavor. It was cooked in a clam broth and was served with clams, broccolini, cloves of garlic, and whipped potatoes.

For desert we went with the bread pudding which was recommended to us by our server. It was served with vanilla ice cream and it was melt in your mouth good! The couple next to us asked how it was and then told us that they read about it in a magazine. Um there's a reason they talked about it in this so called magazine, people! If you go to B Bistro and you don't get the bread pudding, you are simply doing yourself wrong.  That is all.

Ambiance: It is a casual restaurant with indoor and outdoor seating. It's a very small spot so I would recommend making a reservation on the weekends. Tables are set with white table cloths, linen napkins, and a candle. The building has large windows so you almost feel like you're outside even when you're not. Our server was nice and asked us if we would like tap water or bottled water with our drinks. He gave great and honest recommendations for our food selections!

Side note: I wouldn't say that my fiance is picky but he definitely appreciates good food. One of our all time favorite restaurants is Linwoods; he said that B Bistro was just as good as Linwoods and that he looks forward to going back!!!
