Hello, Bistronauts! Please review the following before arrival as it pertains to the order of things at Burns St. Bistro during Phase II 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…

Important: INISIDE THE RESTAURANT, SEATING IS FOR PARTIES OF FOUR OR LESS PER TABLE AT THIS TIME. If you arrive with six people, we ask that you sit outside or at separate tables.

Let’s have lunch and/or 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. (During inclement weather we will take your number and call you when a table is ready.) 
  2. We have 12 tables inside and six outside (69% capacity). Please don't crowd the front door. If the line looks backed up, continue to wait outside.
  3. Upon payment indoor customers will exit via the south-facing side doors and the patio. 
  4. Please do not bus your own table. Exit at the side, south-facing door. 

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.
