The first iteration of Igor graced the silver screens in 1933. Today Igor has been in some variation of different personas in many different classic horror movies as a bumbling and loyal assistant to mad scientist and evil monsters.
However, Igor’s Bistro offers up something different, than a campy horror movie. You could say its less B-Movie and more Blockbuster hit. Although I wasn’t invited into the kitchen I’m sure that they aren’t cooking up meals in a bubbling cauldron, and Chef Rick, isn’t a mad scientist, but more a Chef of 40+ years. Most of the menu items you’ll find are a playful take on classic films such as my found favorite “The Rubenstien.”
This masterpiece is cooked to perfection on marble rye. I’ve never imagined finding so much flavor in a small diner like this. The sandwich speaks for its self. Pastrami, saurkraut, cheese and thousand island sauce. I could eat this everyday of the week. Sided with house cut fries with a special Igor’s seasoning, there is something more going on in the back of the house than we are let on to believe. Trust me though, you’ll survive this meal and come back for the sequels.
If you do go ask for the French Onion Soup, the credits will roll on any others you’ve had. My taste buds explode in my head, and Im left screaming for more.
Igor’s Bistro has been open since 2017, and with flavors like this I can understand why they have a cult following. Sign me up to drink the koolaid.
