Out of the way bistro: South 9th Bistro
This restaurant is not in the downtown core but is next door to MSU. Located in a restored home from the turn of the last century it offers a mix of cuisines.
The portions are large and could be easily shared. The food was very good and the service excellent. The wine list isn’t extensive but offers a choice or two from all the world’s major wine regions. Dine outside if the weather allows.
