Bistro (French), some times spelled Bistrot, is, in its original Parisian incarnation, a small restaurant serving moderately priced simple meals in a modest setting.
Bistros are defined mostly by their ambiance and the creative foods they serve.
The Greenwich Village Bistro has been in the Village for over 15 years. It is still family owned and operated. The owner’s are lifelong Village residents and advocate for the Village.
The Bistro’s charm is overwhelming, great food, drinks, and service make this a “go to place” in the Village.
Craft brews on tap and select bottled import beers are always available.
Along with a fine selection of wines and creative cocktails.
Whether you live in the city or are traveling from afar, stop by for a great dining experience.
You can sit out front and watch the world go by or dine inside and enjoy the view of the park and fountain directly facing the Bistro.
The building is circa 1900 and has all the charm of the “Greenwich Village” heyday.
Occasionally the Bistro offers great entertainment and live jazz.
The origins of the word bistro are uncertain but once you have been to the Greenwich Village Bistro you will understand what a true bistro is all about.
