Berardo’s Bistro on the Beach
Jim Berardo and Greg O’Brien say the style of this bistro, a separate operation to Berardo’s Restaurant and Bar, is inspired by the French Riviera’s traditional le bistro du coin (‘the cafe at the corner’). It certainly works here, with a constant clientele of sippers and samplers relaxing almost on the beach itself. Meals are as interesting as those served in the restaurant, but given the bistro nature of this set-up they’re not quite so complex. There’s also a kiosk for takeaway treats.
