There are a few new developments on the French dining scene in Winnipeg.
Bistro 7 ¼ has renovated, including an expansion to the space next door to 725 Osborne Street. A new lounge and a room for private functions have been added to the mix. The menu by chef and owner Alex Svenne includes bistro favourites such as Moules et Frites, mussels served with fries and homemade mayonnaise, charcuterie boards and more.
In Ferno’s Bistro, at 312 Des Meurons in St. Boniface offers French-Canadian-meets-Mediterranean fare. A second location is set to open soon at 414 Academy.
Diners can look forward to the opening of Promenade Café and Wine Bar this spring, located at the foot of Esplanade Riel overlooking the Red River and the new Canadian Museum for Human Rights.
