Longs may not be the first town that pops into mind for a romantic destination, although being so close to the Grand Strand certainly helps. But with the longtime favorite restaurant Bistro 90, Longs has become a great spot for a quiet date or an evening out with family.
Bistro 90 has been in Longs for more than six years and is frequented by locals and visitors alike. Considered to be casual fine dining, Bistro 90 boasts a calm atmosphere without being stuffy and delicious entrees without breaking the bank. Its location certainly belies the stylish interior and could be a surprise for new customers, though, without a doubt a pleasant surprise.
Before even looking at the menu, there are a few options from which consumers can choose. Bistro 90 has a lunch menu available until 3 p.m. with meals under $15, but the full menu is always included. For those on the go, the restaurant provides the opportunity for takeout.
For the many who decide to partake in the restaurant’s congenial ambiance, they can choose to either dine inside under warm lighting and Italian art, or outside on the patio (weather permitting). There is also a bar behind the dining area, perhaps a bit small but impeccably clean.
Once those decisions have been taken care of, the time to tackle the menu has come. Bistro 90 is probably most often described as an Italian restaurant (with all their pastas made fresh), but there is also an array of Southern Americana dishes to choose from (such as fried green tomatoes or baby-back ribs). There are gluten-free options available as well, and the brick oven pizzas are a popular choice.
These many options make Bistro 90 a unique experience for everyone who eats here; the food experience can be as casual or fancy as you make it.
To top off the meal, whichever one you choose, take a look at the extensive list of wines. Once again the option for casual or fancy is afforded to the consumer, with wines starting at $5 per glass or a few hundred dollars for a bottle of Italian 90+ wine (meaning wines that have received prestigious awards).
Desserts shouldn’t be forgotten, either; with a small collection of homemade desserts like fluffy mascarpone or decadent red velvet cake, who wouldn’t want to indulge?
While it isn’t actually in Myrtle Beach, Bistro 90 is worth the short drive. There are daily specials and regular holiday events hosted in this charming restaurant. Call or visit the website to make a reservation, because if you haven’t visited yet, the sooner the better.
