We were in Big Bear for a couple of special occasions so wanted some special dining experiences and Sweet Basil Bistro was one of our picks. I'd have to say that it was probably my favorite dinner of the trip. My husband had the gorgonzola stuffed filet mignon, which he loved. I had the New York steak with red wine sauce, which was tasty and satisfying. The garlic mashed potatoes and vegetables were good as well. For dessert (special occasion, remember), I had the crème brulee, which was a little pricey, but very creamy. My husband chose a salted caramel gelato, which he dove into with gusto. All in all this was a very pleasant experience and excellent dinner.
