It's a small place located on University Avenue just minutes away from the University of Florida campus - Bistro 1245 - the convenient lunch spot that features sophisticated dishes; but still meets a college studentâ€™s budget.
Lunch and dinner items range from about $7 to $15 - each unique in flavor and carefully prepared to order.
For lunch I recommend the Grilled Three Cheese sandwich paired with Butternut Squash Soup. This â€œadult grilled cheeseâ€ is loaded with provolone smoked gouda and gruyere cheeses topped with tomato slices and held together with two thick pieces of fresh farm bread. The soup offers a smooth and buttery accompaniment to the sandwich. Plus itâ€™s a steal at only $6.95.
Bistro 1245 offers a unique dining experience any day of the week whether you want to grab a quick lunch or enjoy a delicious dinner with a glass of wine.
Monday through Saturday Bistro 1245 hosts wine tastings from 4p.m.to 8p.m. where you choose from a selection of bottles displayed on wine racks around the room. The tasting includes three half glasses for $6.95.
