Bistro 42 pairs a menu featuring homemade Italian pastas and American eats with a casual atmosphere accented by live-music events. Chefs carefully fill the Bistro lasagna’s ($12.99) three layers with a trio of meats and six types of cheese, and stuff 8-inch loaves of italian bread with genoa salami, pepperoni, honey ham, cheese, and veggies to craft the Roma sandwich ($8.99). Two 4-ounce wild Alaskan salmon fillets ($14.99) flop onto plates blackened, grilled, or dressed as chess pieces to complement black-and-white checkered tabletops. Diners can also wrap their jowls around the southern salad sandwich’s tuna or chicken core ($8.99), comingled with homemade pimento cheese and nestled on fire-roasted flatbread. Select nights feature live music from performers ranging from father-son duos to singers bound for American Idol, allowing patrons to appease hungry ears and hands eager to repetitively hug each another.
Alternatively, customers can take their feasts elsewhere with Bistro 42’s catering options.
