A bistro is traditionally a  small, moderately priced restaurant with simple meals, but Table 128’s website is anything but basic. From the clean layout to the beautiful photography, this site feels elegant without being over the top.

Monument Lane

New York, NY

Monument Lane did a great job incorporating their logo and visual branding across their site, with a consistent color scheme and catchy illustrations that sharpen their style throughout.

Pasquale Jones

New York, NY

Everything from the video to the colorful font on this site establishes Pasquale Jones as a hip, downtown-style neighborhood spot.

Bar San Pancho

San Francisco, CA

Bar San Pancho website

The colors on Bar San Pancho’s website are very California, letting locals and visitors know that they offer a true SF dining experience. Vibrant, hi-res photos draw visitors in right off the bat, too.

Left Bank

New York, NY

Visitors quickly get a sense of Left Bank’s comfortable and welcoming atmosphere as soon as they enter the website. The images of the interior, along with the simple branding throughout,  help recreate the feel of the bistro online. We also love the integration of their Instagram feed at the bottom.


Washington, D.C.

chaiatacos.com Chaia website

We love how Chaia updates their website with a hero alert of a nice quote. Visitors are greeted online in the same way they are welcomed into the store in-person: warmly and kindly.
