Bistro 7 1/4

Hot Dining: Kitchen Party

You can find Chef Alexander Svenne at Bistro 7 1/4 six nights a week, holding court in his open kitchen-engaging in customer banter and cooking with gusto. It’s his hospitable personality and consistently exquisite French comfort food that has maintained the South Osborne spot as one of the hottest covers in town for six years running. A recent expansion of the space has added a sexy lounge and private dining room bringing the eatery’s seat count to 90. You can’t go wrong with smoky grilled octopus with orange and spicy chorizo sausage, or decadent vegan and gluten-free chocolate coconut pudding with tangy lime syrup. 725 Osborne St, 204-777-2525.
