Bistro Ten 18
Bistro 1018 was an upscale bistro on Amsterdam Avenue at 110th St. It closed in August of 2016, and was replaced by Marlow Bistro. Not surprisingly, it was pretty expensive too, so people generally went there with visiting parents/relatives. The food was well-conceived and delicious, the wine list was well-selected, and the service was well above average. However, sometimes the food was a little uneven.
According to New York Magazine, "backlit wine racks and dark wood make for a casual upscale vibe at this New American café. Settle near the windows for a view of St. John’s Gothic spires and discuss tenure over sherry-infused lobster bisque, heart-healthy salmon burgers with parsnip-apple slaw, and the scrumptious fruit crisp."
