Bistro 699 - Danforth is exploding

I just noticed the signage up this AM.

Near Pape - in the newly renovated storefront right next door to the new bicycle shop. South side.

I'm keeping my fingers crossed. Just the word 'Bistro' has me excited....

Anyone else have the inside scoop?

      Thanks Baelsette and too bad about the other. wink wink

    2. I was excited, but two things are tempering my expectations -- 1., the chairs -- have a look, they don't look promising, and 2., they were serving gyros throughout Taste of the Danforth. I would love to be pleasantly surprised!

          Does anyone have an update on this place? I can't tell if it's open or not...or find any word about it online.

            Watch this space:

            They're not listed on DineSafe yet so, at a rough guess, they're not open yet.

      2. They have a sign up now....... hate to judge early but based on the sign not looking too promising. Has musical notes and looks very cheesy (just my opinion, I hope I"m proved wrong).
        I hope I look back on this comment and think just how wrong I was to judge.....

          Unfortunately I have to agree. Sad to say it's not lookin' to promising over there.

                  I was so naive :(
