The Atlanta restaurant scene can sometimes seem equally ironic - fancy names, unknown ingredients, and sometimes seemingly exotic flavors. Managing this fickle environment better than most through the years as been the Buckhead Restaurant Group. With their original flagship location closing (Pano's and Paul's), the Group set out to establish a new face, and where else better than Peachtree St. And who else better to man the ship, than the original founder's son, Niko.
After successfully opening and running the Greek inspired Kyma just around the corner on Piedmont Ave, Chef Niko oversaw almost every aspect of his new namesake. And no detail was overlooked; from the French inspired hand shaken cocktails, to the extensive list of DOC wines, Bistro Niko does French bistro like the best. There is no other dish to gauge classic French food than beef boeurginon (sp?). Bascially stew, Niko does this exceptionally well - tender beef, mushrooms, rich stock, and egg noodles make this dish a go to comfort food.
Well as it turns out, this dish can easily be replicated at home.
