Why the Eastside Rocks #8:
I’ve sung the praises of Zydeco (formally known as Zydeco Kitchen & Cocktails) time and again, with good reason: I think they are all-around the best restaurant in Bend. And their Third Street location (near the Reed Market Road intersection)—despite my reservations about it in the past—puts them on the Eastside by my reckoning.
My recommendation: either the ribs or the redfish for dinner, followed by almond wet cake for dessert.
