Located in the center of Highland Park Village, Bistro 31 is a culinary treasure that will make you swoon with its international dishes and European decor. The menu specializes in cuisine with French, Italian, and Spanish influences. Bistro 31 serves brunch, lunch, and dinner. The entire menu will change with the seasons. Bistro 31’s urban-casual environment is designed by Ron Guest, drawing inspiration from the salons and sidewalk cafés of the French Riviera. The interior of Bistro 31 captures a sense of the past with great enthusiasm for what’s modern. Think French-buff, low-luster Venetian plaster walls, white oak herringbone flooring, steel windows and doors, and an exposed beam ceiling. The stand-up coffee bar has been designed in an Art-Deco style with exotic wood veneers and a classic Portoro marble top. Custom designed settees are upholstered in lush, milk-colored leather and Epingle stripe by Paul Smith. Dining chairs are upholstered in caramel leather and the walls feature contemporary art by local artists. Casting a warm glow throughout are two custom Murano chandeliers made in the 1950s ballaston style. The center courtyard offers al fresco dining with a lush landscaped garden, marble-topped tables, and traditional woven bistro chairs, all covered with a retractable awning.
