We recently moved to South Boston from New Jersey, and we were missing all of our favorite restaurants. We got a recommendation to go to Bistro 1888 and we were so surprised! The food was amazing, and the atmosphere is great. We have gone back several times and have always had a great dinner. It is a must when you are in South Boston!
Bistro 1888 is awesome and is receiving some great recognition in the 2008 Virginia Travel Guide, the March 2008 issue Southern Living MidAtlantic Bonus Section and in the Mar/Apr. AAA Going Places in New York. If you're in the area, ya gotta go.
While traveling, we stumbled into the small town of South Boston around 6:00 on Friday evening, expecting to have to settle on a fast food place.
Somehow, we lucked out and came upon Bistro 1888. The restaurant was nearly full, but the hostess kindly accommodated us.
WE WERE SO IMPRESSED! The atmosphere was great, the artwork intriguing and the food....oh my God, it was great from the presentation, to the selection to the flavors Chef Moorefield put together. The wine list of over 100 selections was wonderful too.
It's worth the detour if you are traveling anywhere near South Boston.
All the reviews as of 2/27/06 are right-on except mufonguys (and any other diner) who prefers buffets, barbecue and all-you-can eat establishments. (By the way, mufonguys, 'upscale' is one word.)
When you step through the doors at BISTRO 1888, you feel like you are in a great restaurant in a major city. I drive from Durham, NC (an hour away), and it is a great overall experience every time from the food, to the service, to the wonderful ambiance.
How Southside Virginia lured this restaurant to the area is a miracle.
Everything was great from the moment we walked in. Rarely do you find 24 exquisitely prepared entrees offered in an upscale restaurant even in big city - and all at reasonable prices! Be prepared...this place will blow your socks off!
I have eaten all over the world, and Bistro 1888 offers the best food I've ever had. I've had the pleasure on dining her 4 times now, and EVERYTHING is excellent. South Boston is extremely fortunate to have Chef Margaret Moorefield -- She is putting this little town on the map! Thanks Bistro for wonderful meals and great memories. I'll be back.
