When the cheese plate was served we expected to be told what we were eating since it wasn’t specified on the menu. It was listed as either a ‘chef’s selection’ or a ‘seasonal selection.’ We asked our server and she didn’t know so she went to the back to bring a chef to tell us. To our shock his answer was, “I don’t know what cheese is on there, the prep guys put that together.” NOT impressed. We never got an answer or an apology.
Another detail that distracted us throughout the meal was that the pendant lights hanging at each table were just at the right level to be shining in directly in the diners eyes. It was very uncomfortable, we had to either squint or shade our eyes.
First impressions do make a difference, we haven’t gone back since that first visit.

Plae Bistro is a restaurant that features American contemporary cuisine prepared with the finest quality ingredients. You will not find any deep fried or breaded items here. They use locally grown organic produce creating healthy tasty dishes. They have recently expanded for the second time for their growing business. The interior is classically done with a warm contemporary flair. As you walk in there is a host desk which flows into a beautiful comfortable waiting area with a large bar behind it. They also have a patio for outdoor dining.
Plae Bistro menu is a diverse creative menu using gourmet ingredients. As I perused their menu it was difficult to decide since so many entrees sounded delicious. I decided on their Ahi Tuna salad for $15.00. The salad consisted of Ahi Tuna seared rare, spring mix and Romaine tossed lightly in wasabi vinaigrette, topped with mango, sweet pickled onions avocado, feta cheese and jicama. Soon my salad was brought to me and it was a beautiful colorful presentation. The salad was large and there was a slice of homemade pumpkin chocolate chip bread served on the side. My salad tasted divine all the ingredients blended so well together and the tuna was done perfectly. My service throughout my lunch was very attentive and friendly. Plae Bistro also features a private room with a chefs table. Every day they offer different specials and have a happy hour beginning at 3:00 pm. I have always found Plae Bistro consistent in their quality and quantity of food and also in their service.

I just had a fabulous dinner at the restaurant Plae Bistro; it is located in Bellevue on the East side of Green Bay. Plae Bistro’s décor is upscale, done in a contemporary style with soft jazz playing in the background. Out front are massive beautiful fresh floral planters and as you enter there is a small hostess stand with many tables which leads towards the back to a delightful small bar. The interior is immaculate and classy they also offer a nice large outside patio on the side which you can dine on during the seasonable months.
I was immediately acknowledged by the friendly hostess and was sat a table and given a dinner menu with their wine and specialty cocktails included. Also added was a separate sheet stating the various special features for that evening. My server immediately came over; she had a very outgoing personality and was extremely knowledgeable of the menu and all the specials for that evening. I decided to start out with an appetizer. I chose their Grouper Cakes for $9.99 and for my entrée I ordered one of their fresh catch specials for that evening, a Hawaiian fish Mong Chong for $29.00. For my 2 sides with my entrée I chose the freshly grilled summer squash and zucchini and the mushroom spaetzle. I was soon brought out warm dinner rolls, which was served with herbal fused olive oil and a black tapenade which was made in house. The dinner rolls were assorted homemade rolls brought in from Great Harvest Breads. The rolls were dense, fresh and tasted fabulous with the delicious herb olive oil and tapenade. Next came my grouper cakes which were beautifully presented. The cakes were enormous in size, they had a light crispy outside and the interior consisted of minced fresh Florida grouper, mixed peppers, granny smith apples Dijon mustard, mayo, panko bread crumbs and spices. They tasted exceptional and paired well with the apricot curry sauce. Shortly following my appetizer, the Mong Chong arrived. It was attractively presented on the same plate with my grilled squash and zucchini, and my mushroom spaetzle. The Hawaiian fish was hovering close to 10 ounces. The fillet tasted fabulous. It is a very lean and mild fish with a texture similar to the sword fish, and was served with a Yuzu and a honey wasabi glaze which combined together was phenomenal. The vegetables were nicely grilled and the chopped crimini mushrooms blended well with the spaetzle. Kudos to the owner, the executive chef and sous chef for their consistency in delectable and creative cuisine with good service.

Since I'm destroying renovating my kitchen, my living room is covered floor to ceiling with plastic, and well plaster too. This makes it VERY difficult to cozy up on my VERY comfy couch in my VERY comfy jammies with a VERY yummy cocktail and enjoy the evening. What's a girl to do? Go to Plae Bistro, I say! (Truthfully, one of my girlfriends suggested the place, and I'm happy she did.)
I didn't know too much about Plae Bistro; just that it's located in the Bellevue area and I thought it was mainly a food restaurant type place - I was way off. While they do have a great lunch and dinner menu to offer, I was more interested in the spirited beverage selection. Plae Bistro is a quaint locale that is rectangular in shape. When you walk in the front doors you immediately enter the dining room with plenty of tables to cover a dinner crowd. Towards the back is the bar. The lights are on low and innocuous music is in the background so as to not interfere with quiet conversation. The bar part is cute and consists of dark wood. It's not my couch and I'm not wearing my jammies but this scene makes you forget all that. My partner in crime and I hopped on back to the bar and took some seats. They have a martini and wine list for your viewing pleasure. It was nice to see that they offer more than a few choices for wines. There is even an organic red blend that sounded interesting. The least expensive wine by the glass was $5.75 and the prices went up to the $9 range. Unfortunately, I wasn't in the mood for wine. But fortunately, the martini and drink menu was right there too. They have about 20 signature martinis, a few mojitos choices and some Plae favorites. I picked the Pink Panther for $8. It's made with vodka, and not just "vodka" but X-Rated Vodka! I'm such a sucker. As I was saying, x-rated vodka, citrus vodka, sour, lemonade and a splash of grenadine for that bright pink color. It was very sweet and very tasty. My girlfriend ordered the Pama Mojito for $8. This mojito consists of what it sounds like, a classic mojito with some pomegranate liqueur for a little twist. Plae Bistro also has bottled beer and a few on tap too. Bud, Bud Light, Corona, Hacker Pschorr, Killians Red, Mich Ultra, Miller Lite, New Castle and O'douls are your picks for bottled beer. Tappers include, Stella, Leinie's Red, New Glarus and some fire hydrant one. I couldn't make it out, my apologies. Under the Plae favorites there was this Jack Daniels one with triple sec, orange juice and lemonade. I love Jack. I love to shoot Jack mostly but I was definitely intrigued by this "Lynchburg Lemonade," I'll have to try that one next time.
Since going out somewhat regularly in Green Bay, I'm finding more outdoor patio places than I thought there was. Add Plae Bistro to this ever growing list. Man, I can't wait for summer time. Maybe the groundhog was mistaken about seeing his shadow??
