Bistro Furniture

17 Nov 2022

The origin of the word to mean a certain style of restaurant is debated but is widely thought to date back to when Russian soldiers fought with the French in France during World War I. They would demand food quickly, and bistro means "fast" in Russian. But, bistro food is home cooking rather than typical American fast food or fancy, fussy fare. In Europe, this type of cooking was developed as a way of using up foods, such as making fresh vegetables and leftover meats into hearty stews. It may also be as basic as baguette, served with pate and a glass of wine.

A bistro is a small, casual eating establishment known for serving hearty, simple fare along with wine. Bistros originated in France and the UK has adapted the idea. A UK bistro is likely to have not only French food, but basic filling foods inspired from other cuisines such as Asian and Italian.


The ambience is intimate and perfect for chatting over a deceptively simple plate of food and wine. A bistro can be found almost anywhere, inside, outside, and even inside other buildings. A classic bistro will often be found in a bustling city’s downtown. However, more bistros are being built for customers who want a more quiet, private environment for them to eat at. Cafe tables, benches, chairs, and other furniture are what is used in such private places.


There is no real reason why you can’t start your own business with what is a bistro. Starting your own cafe or restaurant will give you all of the benefits of owning your own business, but without the hassle of operating a full-time operation. By starting a cafe you can be your own boss and work from home, choose furniture to suit from a wide range at Pub Stuff.  The metal base of the Verona or Milan table will be perfect in a bistro setting. With a dark wood square top which can be pushed together or pulled apart depending on the size of party. And pair with Classic Bentwood chairs with or without seat pads.
