Period. Including Israel, UK, wherever. As others have pointed out, the short ribs are incredible.

I went to Mikes Bistro last night and i had a great experience. The food was delicious, especially the gnochi, rib eye steak and dumplings and pretty much everything. Its expensive and portions are a little on the smaller side, but the food is wonderful and the service was even better! Definately worth going to and i probably will go there again.

We went to Mike's last night for new year's and it was incredible. First of all, he service was top notch. We had the sweetbreads and cauliflower bisque, both of which were perfect. The gnocchi is unbelievable. Also, you have to order the short ribs if you go - definitely the best meat dish I have ever eaten. We finished the meal with some yummy fondue. I was a truly excellent meal!

Had the pleasure of dining at Mike's Bistro last night. The food was absolutely wonderful. We started with one of Mike's signature dishes, the sweetbreads, and it was perfection--light and flavorful. The veal chop was succulent--excellent. Mike greets his guests with warmth and it's always nice when a chef chooses to circulate among his patrons. A lovely touch.

is that there are frankly very few kosher restaurants that enhance your appreciation for good food. Mike's is on the short short list. Its great to have a local place like it. Signature dishes in the gnochhi, short ribs and duck, along with a consistency which is rare.

I would just like to reiterate a point that another reviewer made: I did not always eat kosher, and Mike's Bistro makes me feel like I didn't have to sacrifice the quality of food. A majority of kosher restaurants know full well that they can sacrifice quality and taste because there are so few kosher restaurants in the city. Mike's Bistro feels and tastes like a top-of-the-line non-kosher restaurant. While the decor is not exactly at the same level as similar non-kosher restaurants, it is clean, comfortable, and nice enough. Mike's has the best kosher duck in the city. Hands down. Every time I have gotten it, it has been cooked perfectly. The braised short ribs are, in one word, amazing. Every time. For a while, my boyfriend and I ate at Mike's twice a month (before the tough economic times), and everything I have ordered has been amazing. Not to mention, they include gourmet dishes that are usually not featured at Kosher restaurants, like sweet breads. The service is always great-- the waitors and waitresses are friendly and well-informed about the menu. It can get a bit noisy on Thursday nights, but there's no good way to avoid that. There have been complaints that the food was undercooked, and others have said it was overcooked. Everything I have had at Mike's has been cooked perfectly.
