With a slight French bistro feel, this charming eatery offers an enchanting experience, making it a must-visit destination for food enthusiasts.

One of the standout dishes at Humble Bistro is the Jalapeño hummus, which instantly grabs your attention with its outstanding flavors. The meatballs and Brussels sprouts are among the standout appetizers, providing a satisfying start to your dining journey. For those seeking a truly indulgent experience, the smorgasboard is an antipasto extravaganza, featuring a mouthwatering array of charcuterie, aged cheeses, the aforementioned jalapeño hummus, grilled artichokes, Brussels sprouts, EVOO poached wild mushrooms, and whipped ricotta with chili honey, accompanied by forno bread.

The Chicken Caesar salad is another notable dish, featuring a soft-boiled egg as a unique twist. Humble French fries, house fries tossed in a gremolata of parmesan, garlic, lemon zest, parsley, and chili flakes, accompanied by a dip trio (spicy aioli, jalapeño ranch, and fancy sauce), make for a scrumptious experience.

Don’t miss the braised short ribs or the cremini sachetti, a fresh handmade stuffed pasta filled with roasted cremini mushrooms and cheese, bathed in a brown butter, truffle, and garlic confit sauce. Finished with whipped imported ricotta, lemon zest, chili flakes, and basil oil, this dish is creamy, earthy, and simply out of this world delicious.

While the restaurant is on the smaller side and can get noisy at full capacity, its romantic patio offers a serene escape. Savor your meal in the lovely outdoor setting, and don’t forget to try the Frose – a refreshing frozen rosé wine – to complete your dining experience.
