This week on Our Best Bites, we're headed over to Moline to find another place serving up some great food in the Quad Cities, and we landed at Fifth Avenue Syndicate.

Fifth Avenue Syndicate is located at (you guessed it, Fifth Avenue) 1630 5th Avenue, Moline in the base of the Axis Hotel.

Up first for us was the appetizer, steamed mussels, prepared in a white wine cream sauce, and served with crostini.

Then came one of our main courses, a French classic called bouillabaisse. Chef Brandon brought together shrimp, scallops, crab, whitefish, and mussels in a rich broth. Almost like a a hearty stew or soup, but with a variety of flavors.

Another entrée was a special treat from Chef Brandon, which he calls Steak Diane. Two perfectly grilled beef tenderloins with a wild mushroom bourbon sauce, served over fingerling potatoes and brussels sprouts.

Finally for dessert is a dish that photos don't do justice for. The Apple Tart, made with puff pastry, apples cooked in a caramel sauce, served with cinnamon ice cream and topped with caramel sauce and powdered sugar.

Fifth Avenue Syndicate is a must try local, modern dining experience and that's why it's one of Our Best Bites.
