With the Louis Riel Day long weekend upon me, I once again made a daytrip to Winnipeg. Earlier in the year my sister led me to an article featuring worthy new restaurants across Canada in 2011, with one Winnipeg bistro making this list. Deseo Bistro actually has existed in Winnipeg for a few years, but circumstances resulted in them being reborn at its current location in the Riverview neighbourhood. Deseo, Spanish for "desire", features an internationally inspired cuisine with South American influences having a more prominent presence, and appears to be quite popular with Winnipeggers. When I arrived at the bistro I learned that, fortunately, there was one seat left in the two-storey eatery... at the bar. Well, beggars can't be choosers, so upstairs to the bar I went.
