YaYa’s Euro Bistro: A Hidden Gem In DTC
If you want to skip the at-home pasta and opt for a fancy night out, our Client Relationship Director, Kelley, has a ton of recommendations. Her most recent obsession is YaYa’s Euro Bistro, conveniently down the street from the EdgeRock office. If the cozy atmosphere doesn’t do it for you, the food will tempt you back to try every dish on the menu.
Kelley’s First Impressions Of YaYa’s Euro Bistro
Kelley remembers when she first discovered YaYa’s last year after being one of the first restaurants in the DTC area to allow people back for dining. “A few of my girlfriends and I went in for lunch and had the most fabulous experience,” she recalls, “We were there for three hours and no one ever rushed us out.”
When asked what she ordered her first time there, she said, “I think we ordered everything on the menu: beef carpaccio, “mussels diablo,” flatbreads, scallops, and even their carbonara.” So it’s safe to say there’s a dish for every type of flavor palette. Not only does the food menu look mouthwatering, but she describes the wine selection as “friendly with a wide array of choices” to pair exquisitely with your meal.
Kelley also adds that she thinks their seafood is “top-notch” and can tell because they adjust prices depending on what they have. Servers will recommend a great dish and occasionally mention the fresh foods they have locally purchased. There’s nothing like a local restaurant that gets its fresh ingredients from its community.
Dishes You Can’t Skip
For Kelley YaYa’s is now a staple. She recommends starting off with their hummus appetizer before trying their penne carbonara. “If you’re looking for good seafood,” Kelley said, “you have to try the salmon salad but with a side of the ‘Oscar‘ mac & cheese to share.”
Her absolute top recommendation, though, is the scallops with couscous and arugula. It comes with a beurre blanc sauce that completes the dish. “I dream about this in my sleep,” Kelley jokes before adding, “make sure you’re wearing stretchy pants that night.”
The Atmosphere At Ya Ya’s
The patio atmosphere completes the experience, especially during the summer. But their indoor dining is just as delightful. “It’s modern yet cozy and has a great vibe for brunch, lunch, or dinner.” Kelley said. “They also take Open Table reservations, guaranteeing you a time and table.” If you want to show up without a reservation there is plenty of bar area spots but, like any popular restaurant, it’s always safe to reserve beforehand.
