Fresh, quality ingredients, not gimmicky techniques, are the key to Bistro 1491's cuisine. Chef and owner Bo Man Tam honed his simple, yet refined approach while working in the kitchens of five star restaurants, bringing an upscale mentality to his cozy, neighborhood spot. Here, he spends his days crafting dishes that let ingredients shine, such as PEI mussels in a green chile and garlic cream broth, or pan-seared duck confit with a soy glaze. And even kids can enjoy his fresh takes on classics like blueberry pancakes or three cheese quesadillas.
