The new owners now do only private events, which is too bad, as having been there long ago, it was and remains a charming place and provided excellent food and a quite bar area.

Intimate dining in a cozy setting! Boasts personable service and a diverse menu. Refreshing cocktails and good wine selection. Sadly, the 3d Ave. Bistro is (presently) only open for catered events and private parties!
