The new restaurant occupying Lee Road’s diner cars promises an 'eccentric' culinary twist
FAVOR BISTRO — Clyde’s Bistro has departed its unique venue, comprising two diner cars on Lee Road. But the new owners barely allowed the screen door to close before they opened up shop. That means you can sample the wares at Favor Bistro right away.
But the menu looks different than Clyde's, said Lauren Hilton, assistant to owner Candi Robinson.
“Favor Bistro will have a more eccentric menu than Clyde’s did. And we’ll be specializing in dishes with a Creole flavor,” Hilton said.
Whether you’re dining inside or out on the patio, some of those different tastes include The Gator, an alligator burger topped with provolone cheese, citrus beurre blanc and field greens.
Then there’s a filet mignon with Cajun crab sauce, served with spinach and tomato risotto. And a feature among the appetizer selections is Southern fried green tomatoes, with a side of jalapeno ranch dressing.
Owner Robinson also is involved with the Favor Café, which is currently offering catering services. But even though there has been some turnover of dining establishments at this location, over the years, everyone at Favor Bistro is extremely optimistic about the future.
“We plan to maintain the great atmosphere here,” says Hilton, “while catering to the many and varied needs of diners in this area. We’re excited to be here!”
