Moonstone Bistro: A preview of a new hip restaurant in Redding!

MoonstonebistroMoonstone Bistro is a new restaurant in Redding at Placer and Buena Ventura.  Wow!  My friend Zach works there as a waiter so I got in before their public launch this coming Tuesday and previewed the place with my wife and two lovely co-workers.  The appetizer I had was the asparagus cream soup.  The BLT was amazing.  It was made with fried green tomatoes, prosciutto and  served with a side of amazing okra fries.  I liked the dish, and my wife’s portion of the flat bread dish since nothing was over-sauced but had a light and fresh feel to it.  The bun on the sandwich was superb, too.  Oh yeah, to top of this "lunch" we shared a chocolate soufflé which was one of the best I have EVER had.

The feel of the place, even not being completed in its decor, was hip and fun and the open kitchen seemed to say they were proud of their cooking.  This is a great place for celebrations, friends and to simply enjoy gourmet food!  The menu will change monthly so the freshest seasonal foods will be used.  I am coming back, as soon as I save enough pennies since it ain’t cheap.  However, the value is just about right for what you get…high quality food, hip atmosphere and enjoyable service. There is really no other place in Redding like this, and this place would stand up in any big city as far as I am concerned.

  1. lovely food…nice wine…atmosphere (nada) – those lights could light up a runway. Cafeteria lights; nothing romantic with bright lights. Many friends have gone there, enjoyed the food but won’t go again because of those darn lights….LIGHTS…dim them..please.
