After nearly a decade of operation, we bid adieu to Bess Bistro in September 2015. The Sandra-Bullock owned bistro opened in 2006 in a historic building on West Sixth, which provided a sophisticated speakeasy vibe throughout its nine-year reign. The high-end cuisine was originally French in focus, but gradually moved towards a more seasonal, New American feel under Executive Chef Roman Murphy.

Bess Bistro's sister eatery, Walton's Fancy & Staple, is still open.
