I went to Bistro 400 with my husband and 2 friends. We were also going to a play. The food was good and the atmosphere was really nice. After the play, we went back to Bistro 400 and had drinks and listened to the band. They were fantastic and we had a great time!

The food is fantastic, the atmosphere is wonderful, and the people are great. This place is a must-go, and a great stop before or after theater in in the area. Try the G-Bread. Amazing.

Alright! I have to say that this place is by far the best kept secret in the Down Town area. My wife and I were hanging out with some friends and decided to go out and get some dinner and drinks. Not really being from the area we didn't know where to go or what was good. The only place... More

This upscale bistro is located right across from the Courthouse and has a great patio for outdoor dining. I enjoyed lunch here after the lunchtime crowd had dispersed. Their menu has some great choices of salads, sandwiches, pizza, pasta or entrée meals. I highly recommend the Hummus & Feta appetizer dip, hearty and well seasoned. My beet, golden raisin, and...
