Main Street Bistro
Around the turn of the millennium, Fabien Goury and Yasmine Bohsali opened Main Street Bistro as a simple shop where neighbors could stop in for a cup of coffee and a chocolate-filled croissant. Popularity came quickly, and soon the bakery had expanded into a full-fledged bistro and added two more locations, including a Richardson outpost with a greenery-framed patio. The current owners, the Marshi family, took over in 2007. To American ears today, the word bistro might conjure up a decidedly upscale eatery, but in their menu, the Marshi family say they’re reaching back to an older sense of the term: a low-key place serving “flavorful home-style fare of generous portions accompanied by modest wines.” Three meals a day, they blend French tradition with Southwestern favorites, clasping hand-formed Angus burgers in brioche rolls, pairing crab-stuffed salmon with Southwest-style corn, and placing quiche Lorraine on the breakfast menu alongside migas and eggs benedict. A full bar completes the bistro experience with a variety of beverage choices.
