What’s in a Name

For those of you who have lived in Fernie for an extended time or for those guests who have visited the hotel over the years,  you will recognize the familiar name of the Bistro.  Although we have used other names over the years, with Max Restaurant being the most recent,  we felt it was time to go back to our roots. With the renovation and refresh of the restaurant space in Summer 2018, we wanted to bring back our original name. The Bistro, a tried and true classic, much like many of the favourite classic dishes we prepare in our kitchen!
