100 best restaurants: Bistros

Our pick of the new batch of gastro bistros

Advertising

They’ve been termed ‘gastro bistrots’, ‘néo-bistrots’ and other things besides. And with good reason: much like Britain’s gastropubs, this new breed of smart bistros offers affordable, creative cuisine in classy surroundings. Bistros, while a French institution, don’t have a clear-cut cuisine of their own; cue some of the country’s most creative chefs, who spice up these venues with some interesting – and always delectable – dishes. Can't find your favourite on our list? Let us know in the comments box below.
