My friend Brian G. sent me this yesterday and it is now on my list of places to go! "I enjoyed a Sunday evening dinner at Bernie's Southern Bistro at 2904 NE Alberta Street ( berniesbistro.com ), not far from the "Last Thursday" section. I arrived early, so walked up and down Alberta Street, and was intrigued with the shops and galleries. We were seated at a window table decorated nicely with colorful throw pillows, and both started with the Southern Belle (because I like Gin). I had to comment on the two dudes sitting at the window with the "pink" drinks when we were served. We ordered from the $3. Bar menu. The Hush Puppies with orange jalapeno marmalade and the Sweet Potato Fires with a smokin' tomato dipping sauce were amazing. We enjoyed quite a few southern vegetables dishes... which worked out great, as I later discovered that my guest was indeed a vegetarian. I understand they have a nice patio that is open in the warmer season. It was great!" yum, Brian G.
