Welcome to the bistro


Welcome to our table

The farm-to-table culture of eating is one that we grew up with and wanted to recapture in our Appalachian Bistro concept.  Our menu is made up of dishes that our grandparents and great-grandparents put on their tables, and when possible include fresh seasonal vegetables such as garden fresh tomatoes, corn, and cucumbers; potatoes and winter squash, and slow simmered soups and smoked meats.  Every meal is made from scratch, and while we may veer toward a few specials that aren't purely Appalachian, our menu reflects a deep appreciation for the mountain cuisine that has been passed down to us from resourceful and frugal ancestors.

Welcome to our table!  We are honored to share it with you!
