About3Le Chien Noir
Some say the origin of the term “bistro” dates back to the Russian occupation of Paris in 1814, when Russian soldiers would bark the word at French restauranteurs to get them to hurry up. Although Chien Noir is called a bistro, you’ll find yourself calling out compliments to the staff rather than rushing them. Billed as ‘farm-to-table comfort food’ in the French tradition, this classy eatery is part of a group of Kingston restaurants committed to terrific service, customer satisfaction, and supporting local food. Take a short walk downtown from one of our inns for a dining experience found nowhere else in town.
