Tradition and Innovation Mix

One of the great pleasures in life is discovering a restaurant that is well-preserved through the years

It's amazing how many so-called "Grilles" and "Bistros" have proliferated around the Bay area in the last couple of years. What's so amazing is that for the past 23 years, the original Bay area Bistro has been quietly establishing itself as the one to emulate. Bobby's Bistro & Wine Bar opened in 1994, and set about redefining nouveau, or what some call, California cuisine. The leg up so to speak, was that this casual dinning setting was conceived by the owners of Bob Heilman's Beachcomber.
For the casual connoisseur, we call it a light approach to the consumption & enjoyment of good food and wines.

Plastic vs Crystal

Although the demystification of wine has come a long way, there are still certain rules of protocol that simply must be followed. If you serve your guests wine in a frosted 16-ounce mug, a Dixie cup or a Scotch tumbler, listen up! There is a better way. A 10 to 12-ounce glass is best for appreciating the aroma and flavor of wine. The glass should be clear, to better appreciate the wine’s color. Tall glasses that taper at the top allow the full aroma of a wine to be concentrated. Red wine is generally served in large balloon-shaped glasses to allow the rich bouquet to expand. Tall, thin glasses that close in toward the top concentrate the more delicate aroma of a white wine, and help it stay chilled. Champagne and other sparkling wines are served in tall, narrow tulip glasses to retain the bubbles. And remember, a wineglass should be held by the stem not by the bowl, which can alter its temperature.

All Togther Now, 1 – 2 – 3 Breathe!

What is this deal about wines that need to “breathe”? Is that extra when the check comes, or is it some kind of medical thing? Can we talk here? Actually, the breathing thing is quite scientific and makes a lot of sense. The theory behind allowing a wine to breathe is that when wine is exposed to the air, its interaction with oxygen releases the various compounds that make up its aroma and flavor. Young red wines and some older reds benefit most by breathing. The amount of time a wine should be exposed to the air varies. A taste test is the best way to determine a wine’s smoothness and readiness to drink. Cheers!
