Palette Bistro is a restaurant in downtown Petoskey at 321 Bay Street with great views and inviting food.
When you enter the restaurant, everywhere you look, upstairs or downstairs seems a great place to sit and enjoy your meal.
The views of Little Traverse Bay are stunning, but views inside the restaurant and on the street side balcony are equally inviting.
Palette offers great Happy Hour prices on drinks and food. Don’t miss the Cava if available by the glass, as it was on the evening we enjoyed our dinner here.
And they feature small plates as well as large. There’s also flavorful, beautiful pizza. I loved the thin crust. Much of the food is locally sourced. The pizza is baked in this oven on the first floor.
Our party took advantage of the small plates offered at Happy Hour.
Spanikopita Streudel with spinach and feta,
Classic Caesar Salad.
All were delicious.
We also had Margherita Pizza for the table. The thin crust was nicely crispy and the topping with tomato sauce, basil, romano, mozzarella and fustini’s olive oil was close to perfection.
Oven fired Crab Cakes won the vote as best dish of the evening. (Sorry no picture, oh, but they were beautiful.)
We also sampled Mussels and the delicious bread served to the table.
Eating with such good friends made this meal memorable. More important than the food is always the company. I know I remember this dinning experience as the best because of the friends. They are the very best!!
A feast for a very reasonable price, what more could a diner expect? I’ll be back. What about you?!
