In everyday life, it is the Bistro that is woven into the daily pattern of meals and celebrations. The Bistro is that little neighborhood restaurant in Placitas, NM where they know who you are, greet you warmly, and serve you satisfying foods that change with the seasons and define Creative Casual Cuisine.

High Quality Ingredients

Bistro cuisine is a mix of European and American influence. This is all done with high quality ingredients, “the melting pot of taste.” A little of this and a little of that make rustic food so inviting.
