I know it might sound funny, but I loved eating Italian-style food in Japan. Japanese chefs somehow know what al dente
really means, and we had some interesting pizzas and other dishes... so I've really been wondering what Bistro Sun
(920 Sheridan) would be like. We decided to try it tonight.
The décor was promising -- something between a bar and a Soho gallery.
We ordered two dishes Pasta Pescatore (which had the best ika rings and fine al dente
pasta), but we waited 1 hour before giving up on the Pizza Margarita.
I don't remember the last time I walked out on a restaurant, but this was incredible, especially considering that the place was not very busy. I am happy that they must make items from scratch, but it seemed as if the waitstaff just ignored us after a half hour. They didn't apologize until I pointed out when it had been 55 minutes. At that point they offered a free desert tonight or the next time. We declined the offer. I don't think there will be a next time for us. Sigh...
