A bistro, sometimes spelled bistrot, was, in its original 19th-century French incarnation, a small restaurant serving moderately priced simple meals (we might say "comfort foods") in a modest setting. Bistros likely developed out of the kitchens of Parisian inns where tenants paid for both room and board. Landlords could
supplement their income by opening their kitchen to the paying public, for the comfort of travelers and locals, alike. Bistros have always had a relaxed, informal, unpretentious, "at home" feel. At Elm Street Bistro we strive to follow in this original tradition.
We are dedicated to bringing you the most delicious and highest quality meals, made from whole foods: the finest and freshest ingredients around, using locally produced meats, vegetables, fruit, and other products whenever possible. This is not “fast food”, but food carefully prepared the "old-fashioned" way.
We want you to relax and enjoy the good food and drink with your good friends around the table, and it is our honor to provide you with attentive service in a warm and inviting atmosphere. Thank you.
