LJ’s Bistro and Bar
Lake Stevens residents are pretty happy that LJ’s Bistro and Bar has opened its doors at 805 Frontage Rd Lake Stevens, WA
I joined a few friends at LJ’s Bistro and Bar the other night for drinks, food and our usual catch up with what’s going on conversation. We knew this was a new restaurant and decided to check it out.
At first glance as I drove up, I was thinking, hmmm, I don’t know… but I entered, sat down and ordered a drink while waiting for my friends. The wait staff was very friendly from the get-go.
The atmosphere: very friendly, the restaurant is a little dark and it was busy! The place filled up quickly after I arrived but that didn’t interrupt the service we received. One thing in particular I noticed while there was how everyone that worked there really just jumped in and helped each other out. I’m not sure I have ever seen so many cheerful employees at a restaurant!
Flavor: This is a Mediterranean inspired cuisine!
The food: Can you say, Mmmmmmm and again? The food was absolutely wonderful! Some may say it could be a little pricey for Lake Stevens, but wow was it GOOD! Try the Wild Caught Spicy Pepper Prawns - aleppo chile, black pepper and parsley. All I can say is, WOW! Don’t let the spicy bit scare you, they are not so spicy you can’t enjoy them, and enjoy you will!
I also had the White Wine Manila Clams and I have to say I have never had clams that tasted that good!
Who are they?
