First Course bistro is a little bit of Soho, "oh so close to home", with its casual yet chic decor and its sophisticated yet comforting style of contemporary American cuisine. First Course is perfect for a creative start to your evening or for a multi-course evening of its own. Guests may relax on the comfy sofas, warm up by the fireplace or belly-up to the bar before enjoying one of the seasonally handcrafted meat, fish, pasta or tapas dishes. Check us out!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Have been going to First Course since it opened and was glad to see the menu had changed. The amount drop-down box above does not work, we spent $95.00 not including the coupon. We are evaluating the new menu (chef), and were not as thrilled with the new selections as the old ones (though we were tired of the old ones). Sep 8, 2014
