Order Up: Mustard Seed Bistro

On deck this week: our review of Mustard Seed Bistro, a quaint French-inspired eatery in Cooper City. It's the product of Tim and Lara Boyd, a pair of restaurateurs now in their second location since selling Plantation's Upper Crust Cafe in 2004. Like their last effort, Milk and Honey, the Mustard Seed makes use of timeless bistro dishes like tuna Nicoise and French onion soup, each plating with an extra helping of charm. The spot has quickly become a favorite of the society luncheon set, who pack in to sample Tim's deft cooking and chat with their host, Lara. But the Mustard Seed is not without flaws -- inconsistencies in food and service are slight dings in its otherwise shiny veneer, but more importantly, dinner prices veer towards down-payment territory in some cases. Still, there's a lot to be said for this little bistro. Read more when the full review debuts tomorrow in dish. In the mean time, check out a few photos from our recent visit.
