Canal Street Bistro

Introduction:

Today I had lunch with my friend Jason at the Canal Street Bistro.  Jason was kind enough to treat me to lunch after showing me around at the WWNO studios.  This lunch was a great way to cap off a fun mid-day field trip.

We arrived at the Canal Street Bistro around 11:30am, just as they were transitioning from breakfast to lunch.  We each ordered an iced coffee and some lunch.  We promptly received the iced coffees and then our soup course – which was a tasty roasted red pepper and carrot soup served cold.  That was very tasty.  We did experience a long lag between soup and entrees but we weren’t in any hurry so we didn’t really mind.

Food: 

Below are the dishes we had and more about them.

Roasted Red Pepper and Carrot Soup from Canal Street Bistro

Chilled roasted red pepper and carrot soup topped with goat cheese. The soup was very well seasoned, and I picked up both the pepper and carrot flavors. The goat cheese added a great creamy balance to the light soup.

Ensalata Mexicana from Canal Street Bistro

My entrée: Ensalata Mexicana – a spinach salad topped with mango, avocado, pumpkin seeds, jicama, roasted corn, tomato and queso fresco. The dressing was a roasted piquillo pepper coulis. All the flavors worked well together. A very pleasing salad.

Tofu Steak with black beans from Canal Street Bistro

Jason’s lunch – tofu steak topped with red pepper and sautéed mushrooms & onions served over fresh spinach with a side of black beans. He really enjoyed it!

Next time I’d like to try some of their juices.  Apparently they have an extensive juice menu and they consider it one of their specialty items.

Overall my visit to the Canal Street Bistro was a pleasant one.  The ambiance is nice and the service was very friendly, although a little slow at times.  If you’ve not tried this place, now’s the time.
