Bistro Menu

Chef Sean Whittaker

Chef Sean Whittaker has spent the past 25 years traveling the world, chasing the sun and snow between Hawaii and Alaska. He later worked as a Sushi Chef in Utah, before arriving to the North Coast Scene. His travels from around the globe, combined with his passion for local ingredients, inspire his menus.

At lunch the fusion inspired menu includes local favorites like the Fish Tacos with chipotle tomatillo salsa and coconut -ginger purple rice; a Vietnamese Bahn Mai sandwich or the not to be missed Chili Relleno Burger. The Bistro offers classics like the house made meatloaf sandwich, macaroni and cheese and a variety of gourmet salads.

In the evening the focus turns to more serious Bistro dining. Chef Sean brings dishes from his travels like the Pork Mole with Chorizo Polenta, The Peruvian potato and vegetable stew with quinoa, and Caribbean Style Jerk Chicken with black eyed pea, plantain and jicama salad. His regional dishes include a Seafood Cioppino with fresh locally harvested seafood or Roasted Lamb with Red Curry and Butternut Squash Ravioli.

Each Monday night The Bistro offers "Sushi and Martini Night". Offering everything from classic sashimi, nigiri, and maki rolls to creative specialty rolls like the "Boss Hog" filled with soft shelled crab, pepper bacon, and cream cheese, the "Red Dragon" or the tempura fried "TNT"roll. The menu also includes Asian inspired appetizers such as Tuna Poke and traditional Chinese dumplings "Sui Mai". For the land lover the full dinner menu is available as well. Don't forget to order a frosty hand shaken martini, old fashioned cocktail, or sip premium sake, and sit back and enjoy.
