Aw, foodies. I’m sad. My beloved Bistro B has been sold and Chef Tim Bocholis is “passing the torch.”
Bistro B is basically the reason I became a food writer. It was within those walls eating those plates of food that the inspiration for starting a blog began. Bistro Blog. Bistro Bocholis. Bistro B.
I’d get on my high horse in the early days circa 2010 and berate those who stood in line at Chain Lobster and Olive Chain and why oh why weren’t you at THE B???
But eventually, Bistro B became the place to BE in Kernersville, NC. I wrote about them here. And have gabbed often on FB.
Such deliciousness. Anyhoo….I cry.
Bistro B has been sold and owner and Chef Tim Bocholis has announced that he’s off to new adventures. Though he’s not exactly saying what’s next, this weekend is Bocholis’ last weekend as chef.
Here’s what he wrote in today’s newsletter: “After many heartfelt & wonderful years here at Bistro B Tapas & Wine Bar, the time has come for me to pass the torch to embark on a new & exciting adventure,” Bocholis announced. “To all that have enjoyed our dining experiences over the years, I truly appreciate your unwavering patronage and support! I can’t find words adequate enough to express my sincere appreciation. You have made my experience here at Bistro B the joy of a lifetime.”
Bistro B was the first fine dining choice in Kernersville. People from across the Triad would visit to get a taste of Bocholis’ unique take on Mediterranean cuisine and tapas. Bocholis adds, “Coming to a decision to turn over the fruits of hard labor was difficult, to say the least, for me and my family. However, the comfort I feel with the new owners is indescribable. I totally endorse and support their vision.”
The new proprietors, Bob and Trey Prescott will be operating the restaurant with a new concept. It will be called “The Prescott” and is said offer a modern farm-to-table concept.
So sad to see you go, Chef! Thanks for the deliciousness and some pretty interesting tales from the square. Now, foodies…there’s going to be a “new” restaurant in Kvegas.
So, EAT LOCAL!
