Watch Out for School Zones! I say that because The Polar Bear has picked up a couple of photo tickets — in my car (grrr). Now that our kids, grandkids, nieces, nephews, and neighbors are back in school, we are gearing up for a fun and busy fall. We offer something special every single day — entree & dessert features that aren’t on the menu.

This weekend, Friday/Saturday evenings, we are featuring a delicious dinner: Seared Scallops with Pomegranate Drizzle over Roasted Vegetable-Quinoa Salad.

Wine tasting on Thursday, September 17th at 6:30 p.m. The winemaker from Oak Cliff Wines will be with us to talk about his wonderful wines — we tasted them all yesterday (no, it is NOT glamorous), and they are indeed something to write home about. Details will follow next week.

Jan Ryberg & Company will be playing dueling guitars on Wednesday evening, September 9th.

And last, but certainly not least, our Annual Fall Night to Remember Dinner event will be held on Saturday, November 7th, with reservations available from 5 to 9 p.m. Again, details to follow. We’re already experimenting….

Something for everyone!

Safe Labor Day to you all, and don’t forget the Bedford Blues Fest this weekend!

Ahi Tuna

And the beat goes on…

We had a great week last week — and our congratulations to the Monica and Daniel Carson — who threw their wedding reception at Bizzi’s on Saturday night (although we missed our regular customers that night).

This week we have some new wines by the glass or martinis for you – $7 Tuesday & Wednesday evenings.

Friday & Saturday we will be serving Seared Ahi Tuna with Soy-Ginger Glaze over Brown Rice & Seasonal Vegetables. Yes, it is good for you (and oh-so-delicious).

Keep calm and carry on.

Osso Buco

Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs…Food, Shelter, Wine Conference?  It’s hard to complain about our only two days off — Michael and I got to attend TexSom.  Eight seminars about wine & liquor, over 100 wines tasted, mingling with some of the luminaries of the wine industry, and we are tired!  So … have we evoked one molecule of sympathy from any of you?  Probably not.  Wonderful & exhausting conference.  We each made many pages of notes with many new ideas.  Our colleagues at Bizzi’s will hate us (maybe more than usual).

This weekend we are featuring Osso Buco with Gremolata accompanied by Garlic Mashers & Seasonal Vegetables — and we’ll be ready to help you choose with a good wine or cocktail pairing for it (if your little hearts desire our help)!
Jan Ryberg will be here next Wednesday (August 19) to serenade us in the evening with his classical guitaring.
And lastly, $7 wine/martini on Tuesday/Wednesday evenings.
Peace out, compadres!

Our late summer menu is here! Just a few little changes — and they’re posted on our website at or on our Facebook page. Hint: If you just can’t live without Quail, ask — we will generally have some on hand for you. For the season: Lamb Chops with Demi-Glace…Pistachio-Crusted Trout…Shrimp Salad…

This Friday & Saturday night after 5 p.m.: Beef Tenderloin Roll-up with Prosciutto, Arugula, & Fresh Ricotta served over Sage Mashers & Seasonal Veg.

Tuesday/Wednesday nights: $7 wine or well martini.

Happy trails!

Crab Stuffed Salmon

I was always suspicious of the phrase “continuous improvement” at my previous job — seems like we always had a department that “handled” that. Truth is, though, (ah, the benefits of hindsight…) most things can be made better, so we really should always be looking for ways to improve them (no department needed, however). We spend lots of time thinking and talking about our little hive and how to make it a great experience for you.

In the next few days we will launch our seasonal menu to help us slog through the heat and humidity. Details to follow – it’ll be posted on our website & Facebook. This weekend (after 5 p.m.), we are featuring Crab-Stuffed Salmon with Arugula-Cilantro Aioli over Orzo & Veg Medley.

$7 wine or martini Tuesday and Wednesday evenings.

Love your feedback, friends!

Lobster Tortellini

We’re stoked! Last week we got our official notification: Bizzi’s was honored by Wine Spectator Magazine for having one of the most outstanding restaurant wine lists in the world! Michael even has his picture in the magazine — much to his chagrin!

Wednesday, July 22, we have Jan Ryberg in to play his classical guitar — always wonderful (especially with paired with our $7 wine feature both Tuesday & Wednesday nights). He’ll set up just after 6 p.m. and play all evening.

This weekend, we are featuring House-made Lobster Tortellini with Olive Oil & Lemon, Asparagus, and Cremini Mushrooms — don’t miss out!

Now for another cup of coffee.

Chipotle Shrimp

And we’re back!  Our noses are peeling and we’ve all napped nearly every day for the past week … so we’re ready for some fun times here at Bizzi’s!

Friday & Saturday nights:  Creamy Chipotle Shrimp over Pineapple-Cilantro Rice with Asparagus.  If you can’t beat the heat, join it!
Tuesday & Wednesday nights:  $7 Wine or Well Martini.
Have a wonderful week!

Cornish Game Hen

Top of the mornin’ to you all!
Here’s some motivation to come get your Bizzi’s buzz on before Saturday!  We are going to be closed on Saturday, July 4 and all next week, and will re-open at 11:30 a.m. on Tuesday, July 14.   I’d like to say we are going to be industriously toiling away, but we’ll probably be floating in the pool with an umbrella drink.  Just sayin’…
Tuesday & Wednesday nights — $7 red/white wine and well martinis.
Friday night (July 3):  Split Cornish Game Hen with Blueberry Sauce accompanied by Smoked Gouda Mashers and Seasonal Veg.
If we don’t see you, have a safe holiday weekend!

Beer Braised Short Ribs

How quickly we went from cool rain to searing hot weather!  Mustn’t complain, though…I have to keep telling my little fussy self that!

We have daily bistro specials all week long, $7 red/white wine or well martini on Tuesday & Wednesday, and a weekend feature (Friday & Saturday nights) of Braised Beef Short Ribs, Butternut-Parsnip Mash, & Sauteed Seasonal Veg — always a hit to the yummy.
And don’t forget to attend our Witness Tree tasting on Thursday at 7:00pm. $15 for a 4-wine tasting from a great producer in Oregon. We’ll be enjoying it, as well.
May the force be with you this week.
