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 to Blighty's Bistro in Oak Bay. Choose between the following two options:
- For $20, you get $40 worth of contemporary West Coast dinner fare.
- For $10, you get $20 worth of contemporary West Coast lunch fare.
Bathed in candlelight and adorned with a rotating array of works by local artists, Blighty's Bistro entices gourmands with West Coast fusion cuisine from the lunch whistle until the dinner gong. Nosh on starters such as seafood chowder ($9) or snow crab-stuffed homemade ravioli ($12) before moving onto the pan-seared ribeye steak with red wine sauce ($26) or gourmet fish 'n' chips ($22), a plank of battered halibut stuffed with prawns, herbs, mushrooms, and cheese, and accompanied by a Caesar salad, home-cut fries, and its fryhood governess. A mushroom salad ($12) of greens mixed with enoki mushrooms, sauteed oysters and walnuts satiates herbivorous face holes. Midday meal-seekers can nibble on Thai seafood curry ($13) or an autumn salad ($10) bursting with beets, carrots, apple, pecan, radicchio and greens tossed in a honey and blue cheese dressing. Partner amiable eats and the dictation of your memoirs with a cosmopolitan ($8), or select from a large selection of cocktails, beer, wine, and liqueurs.
A reservation is recommended to ensure a spot at one of the Bistro's 13 tables and to avoid having to spend another lonely night eating gruel in the boiler room. Dietary restrictions will be accommodated with advanced notice.
