A hidden gem, XO Bistro is located in the same Red Hook shopping center as the popular nightspot, Duffy’s Love Shack. From the outside, you cannot get a sense of what great gourmet food lies inside XO Bistro.
We always make a meal out of their awesome appetizers! This is also the only way we can reserve enough room for their irresistible gooey brownie trio desert!
Our favorite XO Bistro appetizers:
BLACKENED TUNA “SASHIMI” – Bites of blackened tuna lightly seared and served with seaweed salad.
BLACKENED SURF & TURF PLATTER – Blackened steak medallions, shrimp, scallops and lobster. Served with parmesan horseradish cream and sweet thai chili dipping sauce.
SEA SCALLOPS – Pan seared sea scallops, atop sautéed spinach with sliced tomatoes, chopped bacon, topped with toasted goat cheese and a balsamic reduction.
SHRIMP OR LOBSTER SCARGOT – XO’s take on a classic! Shrimp or lobster cooked in a white wine, garlic and butter with goat cheese melted on top.
