We’ve been exploring quite a number of new places recently and W39 Bistro & Bakery is one of the few that’s really impressive! Given its too-ulu-for-an-eastie location and relatively low profile (for now), I was expecting it to be half-heartedly empty but it was packed and buzzing with life on a TGIF night!
The food was imo outstanding for a bistro/bakery — pretty much restaurant-standard but at café-ish prices! Best of both worlds right! Seared tuna was very thinly sliced but delish with a smartly-paired trio of avocado salsa, soy glaze and wasabi mayo. Definitely as memorable as the one from Big Fish Bistro~ Homemade crab cake was the weakest item we ordered; I didn’t like the thick batter and it was kind of dry. My main of grilled saba was fab — crispy skin and all, plus the chef was super generous with the soy-glaze-dressed spinach! Love. Roasted spatchcock took 20mins to arrive (we were fairly warned in advance) but the wait was worth it! K deboned and devoured the piping hot chicken within minutes while I kept stealing the roasted pumpkin off his plate, heh heh.
