Orange County Restaurant Review: Bistro Lilly, Goshen, NY
Goshen’s latest eatery delights all tastes
(page 2 of 2)
Bistro Lilly’s dining room
My well-traveled friend, Guy, who is a fan of Bistro Lilly, declares the crab cake appetizer “totally delicious,” and the crispy, fried artichoke hearts “divine — as good as the ones we had in Rome recently at the best restaurant!” He also raves about the pan-seared Atlantic salmon (a menu favorite, says Rose, along with the rack of lamb). Guy has complicated food allergies, and was pleased that the staffers and chef were so willing to accommodate him. “We also have gluten-free beer,” noted Rose, when I mentioned Guy’s appreciation. “And a beer for people with diabetes.” The Shevchuks are still waiting for their full license, but you can get wines by the glass, or bottles from $18 to $95, should you feel like splurging.
Bistro dining is on the rise (even in Paris), no doubt in response to the shaky economy and these precarious times — when the going gets rough, we crave comfort food and cozy surroundings. Luckily, you don’t have to be an A-lister to enjoy this newcomer.
