eet eeze beestro, n'est ce pas??

Just today, a friend and I were discussing what *exactly* constitutes a "bistro," after I'd mentioned how funny I thought it was that the concession stand at Ikea is called the Ikea "bistro."

According to Wikipedia, a bistro is a small, reasonably-priced restaurant in a modest setting. I found this a little funny - "Bistro patrons do not necessarily expect professional service or printed menus." Ha. According to the online reviews I've read, this bistro in Park Slope, Moutarde, may *not* have professional service! But it looked cute to me tonight, tres Francais, especially with that little scooter out front.
