Oliver-A Bistro - Bordentown, NJ

It's been a few weeks since we have visited Oliver-A Bistro in Bordentown, so we took a ride over on this rainy Saturday to have lunch.  We arrived around 1PM, and the restaurant had about 5 tables seated, and I am guessing that the rain drove a lot of the customers away today.

We sat at table 17, and Kevin greeted us with menus, and took our beverage order.  Bruce came over minutes later, and we placed our lunch order with him.

Zelda ordered the quiche today, and Chef Matt's quiche specials are always delicious.  Today was an asparagus quiche, with sundried tomatoes and melted cheddar cheese.  The crust was light and flakey, and the quiche was soft and delicious.  The texture was perfect, and for something that is usually pre-made and warmed up, you would have guessed that this was made to order.  It didn't have that hard, congealed texture whatsoever, and was just airy and absolutely delicious, and I am not even a big quiche fan.  Even so, I truly enjoyed it, and Zelda did as well.  the salad that it was served with was made from fresh local vegetables, and delish!  Kudos as always to Chef Matt.

I went with my usual, the Jack Mac Burger, and as always it was good.  This is a delicious burger, served with Boursin cheese and applewood smoked bacon, served on a great, crusty, yet soft bun.  The buns that Chef Matt is using now are as good as they can get.  The texture is crunchy on the outside, yet the inside is so soft.  The burger itself was cooked perfectly to the temperature of medium, and was nice and juicy.  The flavors from the cheese and the bacon make this such a gorgeous combo, and as usual, it was highly enjoyable.

All in all, what is there to say other than it was a very enjoyable lunch at Oliver-A Bistro.  The service was stupendous as usual, and the value was great.  Great job to Chef Matt and Bruce, and the rest of the Oliver-A Bistro team!  Now we just need to get back in for dinner soon!  Cheers!  -F.
