A bistro will definitely be a welcomed addition to that area.

I heard Rob Randall reviewed it on Yelp already!  Apparently the new bistro has a great roasted squash bisque.

Off topic, but did anyone hear anything about a robbery in the cellar of a bistro?

Talked to a staff member and they would neither confirm nor deny or refuse to dismiss the suggestion of a bistro...

I just talked to someone hired to work in the kitchen there. He starts in two weeks. I'm assuming there's no kitchen there now? i avoid vegetables so I'm never I there.

Try making a left turn off Blenkinsop into the parking lot while weaving your way through traffic waiting at the light at McKenzie.

They took out the mediocre-service coffee shop and I believe it's going to be a bistro but don't quote me.
