with Sarah from the Elgin/St. Thomas Small Business Enterprise Centre On Instagram @SBECinnovation #TasteofStThomas Food is such a central part of our community experience. Thriving cities are ones that have emerging and dynamic food scenes. And while there is still room for more options in St. Thomas - the food culture has been expanding for years.
Restaurants are central to the idea of the local experience - one of the best ways to immerse yourself into the culture of a place. Restaurants are the inside scoop on the business, social, intellectual, and artistic life of a thriving society. Business ideas sketched on napkins, first dates, lively debates, and sublime opportunity to discover new flavours immersed in authentic environments.
The location of The Bistro has been a pillar in our Downtown for decades. And over the last six years, it has been transformed from a lunch spot to casual fine-dining experience focused on scratch-made dishes with all the airs of home-cooked comfort.
One thing that hasn't changed though is the sunflower bread. It's still as good as my way back memories and something I look forward to each time I enjoy a meal with The Bistro. It's soft and buttery with a little hint of nutty flavour and a perfect crust. It is the ideal accompaniment to just about everything on the menu.
Another favourite that always brings me back is the Cheddar Ale Soup with its bite of cheddar, and creamy texture is the perfect complement to the Railway City Iron Spike Ale. If you have never enjoyed this soup, the cold and grey of January is an excellent opportunity to add it to your lunch or dinner order!
The Bistro offers an extensive menu and daily specials. Whether you are looking for a fresh salad or a hearty steak, they can accommodate that sense of home wherever you are as online ordering and takeout are available.
As of this writing, The Bistro is open for indoor dining with the full menu. But when you are reading, please take into consideration any changes to our local situation and check with any restaurant what the current hours and availability are. They appreciate your business in whatever ways you can support our local dining options! You can find The Bistro at 625 Talbot St. in St. Thomas and stbistro.ca.
