La Mia Casa È La Tua
The name Bistro 31 is in honor of the date that the original structure was built — 1931.
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-lustre 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 ballaton 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.
