Food was great but watch out for valets
My friends and I went to the Bedford for a celebratory dinner. Our reservations were for Sat night at 7:30. We were immediately seated and the owner greeted us as we walked to our table. Our waiter was very courteous, attentive and knowledgeable (ask for Chris). I ordered the 4-course meal with my choices being: 1. Seared Scallops, 2. Shrimp and Crab "soup", 3. Lamb Osso Buco and 4. Apple Strudel. My friends both ordered the Boneless Spare Ribs and they were divine! I definitely was experiencing dining envy albeit my lamb was quite good too. The Apple Strudel was a little weird for me as it was an Asian-inspired rendition. Imagine chopped apples, raisins and cinnamon in a crunchy eggroll. I only ate the ice cream and strudel center and left the eggroll exterior.

Now the one negative comment about the place is the valet service. We were listening to my friend's IPOD on the way to the restaurant. Once we arrived, we disconnected the IPOD, put it in her bag and stored the cord in a compartment within the car. After dinner, we tipped the valet, got in the car and were attempting to hook up the IPOD when we discovered the cord was missing. Before we questioned the valet, we searched the car to make sure it didn't somehow drop onto the floor. It was gone. My friend keeps her car very tidy so it would've been obvious if it was on the floor or anywhere else in the car. When we questioned the valets, they told us to call their manager. I know it was just a $15 cord but it's the principle of the matter! Anyway, it was such a rude ending to what was a spectacular evening.
