XO Bistro Review

My husband and I tried a wonderful, intimate and peaceful little restaurant yesterday. XO Bistro, in Red Hook Plaza, is an upscale little bistro. You walk into it and are greeted by a nicely decorated restaurant with a bar in the middle. We had speedy and friendly service and ordered one of the specials, a lamb sandwich, and a greek salad. While waiting for our order I noticed the bartender knew most people walking in the door. This is a friendly place where you can stop for a drink and conversation or a casual lunch or dinner.

Our food came quickly and the lamb was cooked to perfection. It was served with a side of potato salad which satisfied my husband’s hearty appetite. The half size Greek salad was more than enough for me and was liberally sprinkled with Feta cheese, greek olives and artichokes. Presentation was on white dinnerware and was well thought out. The extensive wine list will please any palate. Daily specials are worth trying.

In 2008 they were voted the best Martini Bar in the Virgin Islands. Evenings are busy here. Once a month they host a woman’s group. Call for details.
