Burns St. Bistro

Our Beastro cart is ready for your mouths come Thursday, May 14th, click here to peep the all-new website with up to date menus and hours!


Hello, Bistronauts! Please review the following before arrival as it pertains to the order of things at Burns St. Bistro during Phase I of Missoula’s re-opening. Comments and suggestions on how we can improve on our system are welcomed, but our staff and community’s well-being are our main priorities, this is not the venue to protest or argue the veracity of the COVID-19 pandemic, believe that.

We follow all sanitizing and disinfecting best practices as suggested by the CDC, FDA, and local health department. Front of house staff will be masked up. 

We no longer have any self-serve items, we ask that if you need something, you contact your server rather than getting up and moving around: we gotchu! Don’t hesitate to wear your mask when you’re not eating, we ain’t here to judge, or are we…

We ask that any out-of-state customers will have self-quarantined 14 days prior to visiting BSB per Governor Bullock's Phase I re-opening directive.

Important: SEATING FOR PARTIES OF FOUR OR LESS PER TABLE AT THIS TIME. If you arrive with five people, we will split your group into two tables. That will cost us money, but we will do it. 

Let’s have brunch:

  1. Please social distance when you line-up outside of the front door. This door is for entering only. The line will wrap around the north side of the building toward the parking lot. 
  2. While in line, please visit our website or Facebook page for the menu and other updates. 
  3. We have nine to ten tables inside and three to four outside (30% capacity). A host will let you know when you can be sat. (During inclement weather we will take your number and call you when a table is ready.) 
  4. Prior to seating, sanitized silverware, cups, condiments, etc. will be placed on your table. We are using compostable serving gear for now, except for silverware, that is metal. 
  5. Server will take your order. We have one coffee option at this time (16oz). We will have mimosas as well as a limited number of beers and non-alcoholic drinks, as well. 
  6. The food arrives! Servers will place food on a stand next to the table and let you all know what’s what, customers will move food from tray to table. 
  7. Upon payment–cards only, no cash at this time–indoor customers will exit via the south-facing side doors and the patio. 

Thanks for reading! We know this is weird, hard, a bit knotty, over the top, etc. but that’s a pretty good description of this restaurant anyway so we’re rolling with it. And undoubtedly, we forgot one thing and many others, or we may change it all at noon, so please arrive with patience, courtesy, and a full stoke.

Three years ago four morons in a yurt high in the Swan Range came up with a real bad idea: a restaurant on Missoula's Westside. So armed with a Panini press, a soup cooker, and a whole lot of moxie, BSB came to be. While we've left the Panini press behind (RIP), we continue to work with the same energy we had at the beginning. Always learning and ever expanding, we expect to remain a stalwart of Westside for years to come.
