Stephen Distler and Scott Anderson’s Mistral was recently named one of the 30 best meals of 2015 in New Jersey by Inside Jersey magazine. The menu at Mistral is flat-out impressive and tantalizing. Monkfish wrapped in chicken skin ($18), lightly smoked bluefish sashimi ($16) and kung pao sweet breads ($18) are the siren songs calling you to the tables of Mistral. Honestly, you’d be hard-pressed to find these items on a menu anywhere else. The bar menu is equally as impressive and eclectic with deviled quail eggs ($6), Yorkshire pudding ($7), and smoked salmon tartine ($10) serving as the highlights. 66 Witherspoon St., Princeton, 609-688-8808.
