A trendy martini bar opens and you are not sure if it's just that, a trend or truly worth the buzz. Since Twigs Bistro in Kennewick, Washington opened, I've now been several times and they have yet to disappoint me.
Situated outside the Columbia Center Mall, Twig's is conveniently located whether you are out shopping during the day or catching a movie at night. A small patio is available for outdoor seating on lovely summer evenings but does overlook the parking lot and busy main street. They have placed some shrubs to block the view a bit and having been seated in that area, it really is still fairly quiet and an intimate atmosphere.
Inside, you have the option of sitting in the dining room or the very large bar area. Both options offer a full menu and views of the beautifully decorated restaurant. In the dining room, you can even cozy up to a large indoor fireplace.
When it comes to the food and drink, that's where Twig's really shines.
Start things off by browsing the large assortment of wine and spirits and try a new martini from the menu of 36 signature martinis. If you happen to hit happy hour, I highly recommend the five dollar lemon drop martini.
After selecting your drink, when you start browsing the menu, you will have another tough decision ahead of you. So many delicious selections from pizzas, sandwiches, pastas, burgers, fish and more. My personal favorite is the Gorgonzola Burger with whole cloves of garlic and a side of the signature fries (covered with fresh basil served with Gorgonzola Sauce).
Perfect for a small intimate dinner for two, family dining with a large kids menu, girls night out or even a big group, Twig's offers something for everyone in high quality style.
Twig's also can be found in several other locations in Washington State, Oregon, Idaho and Utah. Visit the official Twig's site for more information and view the menu.
