hey ya'll . . . this has happened too many times, a trek over to the bistro, only to find a line out the door . . anyone have tried and true alternate choices within walking distance? also, any recommendations about less crowded times? I've eaten there on weekdays for lunch (ah, the unemployed days of proper chowhounding) with no problems but any other time is killer . . . help me, I'm just lookin' for a burger and cheap beer!
