Roasted Chicken Breast with polenta and broccolini $11
One of the best values on the menu is definitely their Roasted Chicken Breast with creamy polenta, broccolini, and lemon sauce. I am a sucker for anything that is served with polenta and this chicken dish was delicious. While I normally don’t order the chicken at restaurants, there are occasions where it is just too good to pass up and this was one of them.
Kurobuta Pork Chop with bliss potatoes $11
The last item I tried was the Kurobuta Pork Chop which is served with a zesty chipotle sauce and bliss potatoes. The potatoes were whipped with two large roasted potatoes on top. While I should have been stuffed at this point, this dish was so good, I made room to finish the entire plate. I was also told by our amazing server how high quality the pork at Bayside Restaurant is and she wasn’t lying. It is exceptional.
