Bistro Bienville opened in 2006 on a tucked-away, tree-lined residential street that’s a five-minute walk from St. Denis. The restaurant's dining room has white walls and narrow tables, and the exposed kitchen produces an ever-changing menu of a dozen or so dishes. French-influenced, yet internationally eclectic, smaller plates may include the foie gras flan or the Caesar salad with mackerel confit. Family-style dishes are portioned for two, like the whole fish of the day with Israeli couscous, and Angus beef with béarnaise sauce. There's a bring-your-own-wine policy, as well as a short wine list.
