I had lunch with Meg this week and a hot topic that came up was the closing of Bistro Les Minots, the cute, little French Bistro up on 30th Avenue and 47th Street. My guess for its sad ending is perhaps the remote location, set in a quiet, residential neighborhood, far away from the busy commercial streets closer to the train.
It's a real bummer and I'll sure miss it. While there are some other French restaurants still in the nabe, I think the only ones worth their salt are 718 and Tournesol.
So for now it's au revoir Bistro Les Minots. We'll think back on you fondly and remember your cozy, comfortable vibe, warm staff and yummy food.
Chime in Astoria - let me know what you'll miss (or not miss) about this place and also if you have other trusty French alternatives you'll turn to in its place.
