Bistro 1896

Bistro 1896 Review

In a 19th-century building on Pack Square, Bistro 1896 focuses on seafood but also offers other dishes in the New American style. Start with mussels in a Thai curry broth or the fried-green-tomato stack topped with blackened shrimp, then jump to the trout with strawberry and black-pepper puree or wasabi-encrusted scallops with asparagus. The bistro look comes from the period photos on the walls and glass-top tables with fresh flowers. In good weather, sidewalk seating lets you take in the street performers on bustling Pack Square.
