(Pardon the high school French, but one of the reviewers below was, I think, reviewing this spot from a time before it was a true sit-down restaurant, back when it was "Flour Power")
At first, didn't think anything could assuage our sadness at the closing of Flour Power, a bakery that had been on the same spot with the same owners and talent, as the newly opened "Hello Bistro".
As sad as we are to say goodbye to the fine French boulangerie and patisserie that was Flour Power lo those many years, man cannot live on bread (and eclairs) alone. It turns out JT has a lot more than dessert recipes under his toque. He is an excellent, excellent chef. We are so happy to have Hello Bistro as a new dinner and brunch spot!
The menu is surprisingly diverse for a restaurant of this size, and everything on it is very well made. JT is French (or at least has the lovely accent) and it shows in both the big and small things he does. It starts with world class bread on the table. One of my favorites is a little touch - the warm salad greens with delicious homefries tossed in, that he serves at brunch with eggs. He is equally deft with pan seared trout, and of, course classics like coq au vin. Dessert time, it's deja vu all over again as you get to enjoy JT's pastry skills ... ooh la la.
One of the nice things about Hello Bistro is that it is casual, friendly, good value and unpretentious, all the while serving very fine and nuanced food that could compete against just about any fancy-pants place you'd like. One of the best items on the menu is a burger (locally sourced, like most of the menu) and frites!
Go. It's a great meal from a true talent.
