181 Bistro Brookline NH
I was looking for info on this place and a yelp post popped up.
No website, but there was one post. The info mentioned that it was open from 8:00am - 9:00pm. The post pretty much said good food for good prices.
I don't get over to that area much at all, has anyone driven by recently
and noticed any activity?
I may try and head over there by the end of the week if I remember.
All other search info seemed to be old info, or I just didn't check out enough hits.
Bistro 181 couldn't correct the original post.
Decided to go by today and pick up a menu. Then when I showed the DH the menu he was willing to go try
it. Small menu but enough choices for most.
No website yet, so I asked if they would allow me to post their menu here. They do have a facebook page,but when I looked at it, there isn’t much info yet. Right now open 7 days a week from 11:00am-9:00, maybe adding breakfast on June 1st.

What we had- DH had the crab cake starter and the scallops with a Magic Hat
I had a small salad and the stuffed chicken breast with 2 Miller lites
Our total bill before tip was $60.77
As I typed the menu, I realized my chicken didn’t have the marsala mushroom sauce!
We were both pleased with what we had, and will return.
I can’t believe I didn’t notice the missing sauce.
Our server mentioned that they will change any dish if you’d like, but I didn't ask to have the sauce off, oh well.
We got there just about 4:00pm and were the only customers, when I stopped by earlier at about 1:00-1:30 there was one table occupied.
And no I don’t know the owner or server, just trying to pass on the info since there isn't a website
Went there for dinner tonite-
Had the spicy shrimp and buffalo chicken tenderloins for starters...lobster pie/asparagus and braised scallops/risotto for entree and chocolate/raspberry desert with glass of wine/draft beer - $56!
everything cooked to perfection, plenty to eat with some left over to take home... waitstaff/chef create a warm welcoming atmosphere... not connected to former restaurant....
