Early bites at Bistro 25, Sayville
My first taste of Chef Brian Shuren’s cooking at Bistro 25 in Sayville left me eager to return for more.
Loved the gratis warm bread sticks, which had a surprisingly spicy kick. And was really wowed by an appetizer of braised pork belly, two meaty squares, each topped with a layer of crackling-crisp fat, served over slightly (but not too) sweet corn pudding. ($8) An entee of juicy pork tenderloin au poivre came with a lovely root vegetable puree. Dessert was carrot cake bread pudding with cream cheese ice cream. Comfort food, no doubt.
