Official Reopening: May 11, 2020

We are pleased to announce that Bistro Mon Cheri reopened with a special limited time menu for Pick Up, Delivery, and Catering on May 11, 2020.  It's been a very challenging time for us during the lock-down period and all of us here hope that you and your loved ones remained safe and healthy throughout.  Our dining room will remain closed until government orders are lifted and it seems safe to resume hosting large gatherings.  Check back for updates.
