Roasted chicken at Bistro 31

A Favorite- Bistro 31

Up the stairs to the bar at Bistro 31.

Do you have a place that no matter how many times you go; you ALWAYS have a fantastic time?

That’s how it is for me with Bistro 31 at Highland Park Village.

Coctails at Bistro 31

It all started about 6 years ago when Mark and I had date night here.  We went to the upstairs bar, (hidden at the time) and ordered a bottle of champagne!  What an absolute luxury!  We had an amazing night and Bistro 31 became one of my favorites.

There are so many things to love about this place.

For starters, it is just fun to get “off campus” and do a little people watching.

The restaurant is intimate with a smallish main building and a greenhouse structure with a movable wall.  When the weather is nice, they leave it open so you get an al fresco dining experience.

The cocktails are fabulous, they have a superb wine list and the food is always scrumptious.

 Mark always gets the steak and frites but there is something for everyone; seafood, pasta and specials including a chef featured risotto of the day.

 The furnishings are cool and comfortable, upholstered booths and chairs at the tables by the windows.

On this visit I had the Burrata Salad and the Roasted Chicken.

Lorie at Bistro 31

Bistro 31 was the site for lunch at the ATOP summer event; A Day of Dior.

I hope you will be inspired to give Bistro 31 a try soon, and let me know how you like it!
