During our stay in Holland, Michigan, for the boys' soccer tournament on the Memorial Day weekend, I had a chance to re-visit CityFlats Hotel. This visit included a nice dining experience. My friend, Lynne, and I started out by grabbing some drinks at the bar downstairs in the lobby area with a couple of other soccer moms. Later on, Lynne's husband joined us for dinner while the rest had to leave.
Flatbreads are well-known items on their menu. We ordered a couple appetizers to go with our drinks at the bar. Chicago Flatbread (Above): Kalamata olives, artichokes, feta cheese, roasted tomatoes, and mixed green. Very fresh ingredients -- very delicious!
Mushroom Ragout: blend of sauteed forest mushrooms with fresh mozzarella and white truffle oil. Everyone absolutely loves it.
Located on the top of very cool "green" CityFlats Hotel in downtown Holland, CityVu Bistro offers a casual and elegant ambiance, with a big city feel. I love the modern look of the hotel and the restaurant. Food was great, our server was very attentive and friendly.
They have pretty nice wine list. Our server was very knowledgeable of the wines and food on their menu.
Cheese and Fruit: Artisan cheese selection served with fresh fruit and crackers.
Blackened Salmon: served over sauteed vegetables with cucumber-lime yogurt sauce.
Linguini Puttanesca: light and spicy with tomatoes, capers, Kalamata olives, garlic, and herbs. Very flavorful, just the way I like my puttanesca.
The rooftop dining area, overlooking Holland, is gorgeous. I am sure it's even better at night time! I would definitely go back to CityVu Bistro for more good food...
