Bernard’s – Chestnut Hill

Thanks to a friend of mine, we went to Bernard’s as a “known quantity.” It is not 100% authentic Chinese but that’s not what its supposed to be. It is Americanized Chinese, using very good ingredients and cooked well. It is surprising that it is located in a mall, but once inside the restaurant, you lose the mall immediately. For some reason, I lost my notes so the photos will have to tell the story.

Bernard was so genial and so gracious. I basically let him choose our menu.

Chicken and Ginger served in lettuce leaves


Some type of Fried Spring Roll


Peking Duck – our server was terrific and prepared the duck for us – delicious


Shrimp with roasted black bean, garlic and shallots and sautéed String Beans

Don’t have a clue.

Tapioca Custard

An absolutely welcome addition to my dining adventures in Chestnut Hill. I would go back in a heartbeat
