Jenny Meyer and her team with Lincoln Select Real Estate Group and Nebraska Realty paid a visit to our Piedmont Bistro and created a Homegrown Spotlight video on our restaurant.
I visit a lot of local restaurants and I can guarantee that very few in Lincoln match the vibe and atmosphere of the Piedmont Bistro.
“Hi, I’m Jenny Meyer with Lincoln Select Real Estate Group and Nebraska Realty. And welcome to our latest Homegrown Spotlight. As a realtor I visit a lot of local restaurants and I can guarantee that very few in Lincoln match the vibe and atmosphere of the Piedmont Bistro. Come inside and I’ll show you why it’s such a source of pride in the area. The menu is diverse and delicious and everything is made from scratch. Nothing is served from a box or bag which is one of the many reasons people have embraced the bistro. Speaking of the food, I’m here with Jillian who is the General Manager at the Piedmont Bistro and she’s going to take us a little deeper into the menu. Thanks for having us Jillian. ‘Thank you Jenny and welcome to the bistro.’ So Jillian what can people expect when they visit the bistro? ‘People can expect a lot from the bistro. It’s a really great place whether you want to have more of a casual atmosphere and a glass of wine or more of a formal dinner, we can acommadate you in any of those situations.’ So what are some of the items that keep people coming back. ‘Well we have three of them right here. Starting off with breakfast we have our build your own benedict. We do have three options for this, a salmon, a ham or a roasted veggie which is what we have here. A lot of vegetarians like this dish. Moving onto lunch we have our open-faced salmon sandwich. That’s going to be a piece of rye bread, with spring greens, herbed cream cheese, and then topped with some pickled red onions. And then for dinner we have a ribeye here, it’s certified angus beef and hand cut by our butcher at Venue.’ There are so many good food choices here but I keep hearing about the beet fries. Is there any way we could go back to the kitchen and see how these are made? ‘Of course, let’s head on back.’ ‘So here we have our roasted beets that have been tossed in corn starch, we’re just going to go ahead and drop them in the fryer here at about 350 degrees for a minute or so. While those are cooking up we’re going to go ahead and build our sauce here. We have our Japanese mayo and our chili apricot made in house. And then we have a cilantro infused oil to go with that and that is our sauce. Alright so our fries look pretty done, so we’re going to give them a little toss of togarashi seasoning. This is a Japanese blend of spices and that’s the finished project.’ Those beet fries were absolutely fantastic but now I could go for something to wash them down. ‘The Piedmont is our kind of spin-off on an old fashioned. Instead of muddling the fruit as you would in a traditional old fashioned we use regans orange bitters as well as rye whiskey and a house made cardamom syrup.’ Jillian thank you again for inviting us and taking the time to show us around. The Piedmont Bistro truly is a treasure for this city. ‘Thank you Jenny, it was our pleasure having you this afternoon. Stop back anytime.’ The warm inviting atmosphere, delicious made from scratch food, and one of a kind drinks make the Piedmont Bistro a neighborhood restaurant you can’t miss. Make plans to be amazed soon. Thanks for checking out our Homegrown Spotlight and stay tuned for more coming soon.”
