Bistro is always good, and many times great. Love the roasted beets, they always have great daily specials, and we especially love to order whatever is fresh out of Martha's garden. Food cooked with love! The cool downtown atmosphere is an added bonus. Aargh they won't let me give them 5 cows because they also serve meat. It's a bummer because their food is great and their veggies are coming fresh from the farm. I'd give them 5 cows if the site would let me!!!

great atmosphere and good choices

Went to Bistro at the Bijou with a coworker while on business in Knoxville. This is a great spot for a casual bite especially if you need to keep a meat eater happy.

The special today was a vegan quinoa bowl, the soup was vegan and the menu itself has multiple veggie and vegan options. It isn't as extensive as a veg only restaurant but for pub style dining it was great.

I had a bowl with basmati, collard greens, black eyed peas and chow chow (peppers in vinegar) and it was very wholesome and satisfying.

There was a great jazz trio playing as well adding to the already nice ambiance. Prices were very reasonable, meal was $15/person including tax tip and a ginger tea!

Pros: ambiance , pricing, selection (for normal restaurants)
