Bloody Mary 3.50 Screwdriver 3.50 Mimosa 3.50   The Bistro is located directly to the left of the Bijou Theatre and caters to theatre attendees prior to the evening shows.  The Bistro offers full bar service with a Happy Hour Monday thru Friday from 3pm til 6pm.  Otherwise offering slightly upscale foods in a loud and nostalgic atmosphere.  Typical open dining on the first floor with limited balcony dining.  The Bistro recognizes regular customers and somewhat caters to the regulars and sometimes makes it hard on the newbies.  Off the sandwich menu The Black & Bleu Burger is the best yet in Knoxville.  Be sure to order it with fries, the addition of the Heinz Ketchup to the fries levels out the richness that the gorgonzola adds to the burger.  Special notable items are the Cranberry Chicken Wrap that is on the special menu and accolades have been given to the hummus.  There are daily specials available Monday thru Friday and are not served on a consistent basis.  The atmosphere when near capacity is deafening and polite conversation is just not possible.  However, when people are loud, they are generally happy.  The Bistro has been serving patrons since 1982, thats quite a record.  Most notable, management here has expelled unpopular political figures for good cause and that is just cause for good business.
