Bistros are remarkable in that they somehow manage to be both fancy and casual at the same time, much like a necktie with Taz on it. Feel gussied up without too much fuss with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of sea-fresh fare at Black Sheep Bistro.
From its paradisiacal perch on North Padre Island, Black Sheep Bistro spices up its menu of fresh seafood, steak, and pasta dishes with an array of international flavors, ranging from Mexican to Martian. Rich, flavorful appetizers like Nacho Ordinary Crab ($8)—a savory pile-up of toasted corn tortilla chips and fresh blue crab meat, topped with pepper jack cheese—complements the Bistro's warm, colorful ambiance and gives taste buds a seamless segue way to entrees such as the locally famous Little Joe ($25), a filet smothered in blue cheese and caramelized onions, and the Pescado a la Ticla ($15), the catch of the day grilled over an open flame and slathered in pico de gallo. Diners with ample post-prandial stomach space can close with a slice of Grandma's Homemade Apple Pie a la Mode ($4.50). Otherwise, savor the atmosphere on the outdoor patio and feel the ocean breeze playfully muss your hair as you indulge in a little people watching, fleeing-people watching, zombie watching, and zombie fleeing.
- It is [Chef Chris Gonzales'] experience, paired with his experiments, that makes the Black Sheep Bistro the culinary retreat it has become. – Gulfscapes magazine
- Every dish I've had there (which there have been many) has been wonderful! The service is awesome and very accommodating. – anne, Urbanspoon
