Tano Bistro in Loveland: it's back... and it's better
Updated: Jun 5
4-Star Review by Polly Campbell
A year and a half ago, a fire burned through the top floors of buildings in Loveland's historic Downtown near the bike trail. Many of the businesses on the block, including Tano Bistro, had extensive damage and had to close. They're back. Saying "better than ever" doesn't seem right after such a devastating event, but the whole block looks great and still feels historic.
The restored Tano looks great, too. And it's obvious that owner Gaetano Williams used the downtime wisely. On their website, you can see all the connections that he made with regional farmers and food producers to get unique offerings and products. From buying masa (corn dough) from local Tortilleria Garcia to cherry tomatoes from indoor farm 80 Acres, wagyu beef from near Columbus, even water buffalo meat, he has created a nice web of regional interdependence.
From these ingredients and more, Williams has created a menu that ranges from familiar comfort food (salmon with mashed potatoes) to the trendy (fried Brussels sprouts with pork belly) to the exotic (water buffalo burgers).
