Bistro 220 bids farewell-
After six very successful and wonderful years I have decided to close the bistro in order to return to a more normal life. I want to be able to have time for myself once again, along with spending more time with family and friends. As many of you know I spend a great deal of time at the restaurant between prepping, managing and being out on the floor. This left very little time for myself and a lot has changed in the last 6 years. I feel at this point in my life, this is something I need to do. I hope all my loyal customers understand this and know that I will truly miss everyone. I fought tooth and nail to bring this community one of the finest, most unique and intimate eating establishments around and I believe I accomplished that. I also have appreciated all of your fabulous comments over the past 6 years. I survived through the roughest of economies and the continuing denial of a liquor license. I made lemonade out of lemons by offering top of the line sake martinis in which people came from all around to try as the word spread. I also want to thank all of the downtown businesses that have supported me over the years. This decision to close is very hard for me, but one I have to make in order to restart my life again. I know I will miss it tremendously, it is something that has always been in my blood. I'm hoping to see many of you around town, because I'm not going anywhere anytime soon. I love Lake Geneva and I'm hoping with some of my spare time to be able to get even more involved with the community. Keep in touch by emailing me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Again, thank you so much for allowing me to serve you.
A tearful so long-
PS- A special thank you to all my wonderful employees for their understanding and support!
