Our team is grateful for the community’s ongoing support, and we’re looking forward to the next five, 10 and beyond.”

The menu, designed by executive chef Derik Watson, will retain many Bistro 82 signature dishes like the French onion soup dumplings, filet mignon and pan-roasted cobia. Newcomers include scallop carpaccio, pasta Bolognese and seafood
