Soups, salads, sandwiches, entrees, and spirits… served casual bistro style. Join us for a signature cocktail, farm fresh greens, locally made breads, and house made delights. NOIR Bistro & Bar is your newest destination. Try our version of chicken-pot-pie, the “big cheese” or the D.O.A. we also serve local brews. The setting at NOIR – Bistro & Bar, is inspired by cinema of long ago. Here you will enjoy specialty cocktails made from the finest ingredients including simple syrups and mixers made in-house by our professional bartenders and spirits distilled by local companies. Order a “Violet Femme”, a delicious maceration of Queen Charlotte and March Violets in “Weinbrand” (distilled from grapes), with cane sugar for sweetness is our base, add gin, lemon juice and St. Germain for a glass of violet goodness. Or perhaps “The Ruby Slipper” made with Cappelletti Aperitivo, both orangey and herbal with a hint of sweetness. Sparkling wine makes the drink pop along with our house made grenadine and the gin brings it home. There’s no place like it.
