WHY A BISTRO? The first recorded use of the word appears in 1884. A popular folk story of the word claims that it originated among Russian troops who occupied Paris following the Napoleonic Wars (from быстро, "quickly"), which was allegedly shouted by Russian officers or Cossacks who wanted to be served quickly.
AND WHY FRED'S? Fred is a 10 lb Miniature Dachshund who gives us happiness and laughter every day. That's what we want to pay forward to you. Since Fred also has a bit of an attitude our sandwiches include the same.
OUR PHILOSOPHY. We believe in the City of Amity and in presenting food from the local abundance of Yamhill County. We will strive to have our area proudly represented. We also believe in helping our environment by reducing and recycling as much as we can. So our take out boxes and bowls are recyclable as well as our to go tableware. Inside our restaurant you will be served with real dishes and bowls along with real silverware. And our cleaning products are environmentally friendly where possible.
We hope you enjoy our little slice of Heaven and take some time to enjoy our food. If you have any questions or comments feel free to chat with any one of our awesome employees.
With much appreciation, Scott, Diana and Fred Backinoff of Fred's Bistro.
