I never did make it to Latte Bistro under the former management! When I heard from my primo Joe B. that I needed to try out the food at the Latte Bistro I thought it best to go sooner than later and I’m glad I did.

Heading up the team at Latte Bistro is Chef/Owner Rhett Villanueva, formerly Sous Chef at Sam Choy’s and Head Chef at Meskla Dos. When I’d first entered I was greeted by Jason (also from Sam Choy’s and Meskla). I felt confident with these two working in this new eatery, which will soon be changing its name from Latte Bistro to The Hub@155. They just don’t serve lattes or mochas or espressos! No worries...we have too many of those places already!

What we need more of is REAL food! This is what Rhett’s been trained to do---make real food-good food!!

I didn’t’ have a chance to eat through the menu and settled on today’s special, which was Grilled Pork Chops ($12.95), with caramelized onions, and Spinach Mashed Potatoes, and Corn. It also came with a Green Salad with a creamy orange salad dressing.

The chops were tender and juicy (and came with finadene). I later asked for dinanche and got a pile(which I nearly finished...it was soooooo delicious)!

I heard from one of the guests I must try their Shrimp Corn Chowder and their Chalikilis with two slices of Fried Pork Belly! They have Loco Moco’s and BBQ Chicken, Shortribs, Kelaguen, and more. Breakfast features Chef Rhett’s Tapa (homemade garlic beef), along with pancakes, eggs, and other morning eats.

They are ambitiously planning some major changes to this location so they can draw more people to this dynamic destination. Get to the Hub@155!
