Since its inception, Bad Apples Bistro has gained a reputation for introducing fun and unique food and wine pairings, as well as presenting classic dishes with intriguing twists.

A Menu Crafted with Creativity and Seasonality

At Bad Apples Bistro, the menu is a testament to Chef Chris' creativity and dedication to utilizing seasonal ingredients. With quarterly menu changes, guests are treated to an array of flavors and textures that showcase the best of seasonal fruits, vegetables, game, and fish. While some staple dishes like the signature Beet & Apple salad, Crab Cakes, and Filet mignon remain constant, there's always something new to discover. Each plate is a harmonious fusion of flavors, textures, and inspiration that aims to create a memorable dining experience.

Dr. Sam's favorite, the Filet Mignon, showcases the restaurant's dedication to quality, while seasonal specialties offer a chance to explore Chef Chris's innovative dishes. From Erin's love for the salmon to AJ's craving for the french onion soup and Eli's delight in the chicken tenders with jazz fries, there's something to satisfy every palate. 

Chef Chris, with his demanding profession, recognizes the significance of a healthy spine and posture and seeks Dr. Sam's expertise to prevent back pain and sciatica that can arise from long hours in the kitchen.
