I was reminded the other day that I neglected the meal I enjoyed at one of the newer places in the area. The Promenade in D'Iberville is loaded with places to eat. You name it they got it! Pretty much all the standard shopping mall eateries. But there is a hidden gem tucked away and unfortunately a little out of site.
Aristo's is a little piece of variety in the cookie cutter restaurants of mall land. Terri and I where wandering one day and she suggested we give them a shot.
We of course had to have our unsweet tea. and for an appetiser we tried the pita pizza mozz. This was pretty tasty. Warm pita bread with melted mozzarella and served with a feta ranch dipping sauce!!!!
We also tried the Flat potato fries. It's a really cool concept. They slice a whole potato and deep fry it. It had more of a home fry texture and I thought it OK but I could take it or leave it.
I followed up with the gyro with added feta. I love me some feta! I've had gyros all over the country and this was the first time it was suggested to me to try it with melted feta. I didn't know what I was missing!!
The sandwich was packed with gyro meat veggies and oozing melted cheese. It was a very satisfying meal.
Terri indulged herself in a grilled shrimp wrap that looked great. Judging from the mmmmmmms and yummms we both agreed that there will be a future visit.
The wait staff was wonderful and attentive without hovering. Glass was always full and food was hot and fresh.
Prices pretty good and you can tell the staff enjoys what they do. Give em a try! If we don't support these smaller businesses we will be doomed to chain restaurants and woe to the adventurous palate!!!
