Le Petit Bistro is the culmination of a desire and passion that began 40+ years ago when I worked at a small delicatessen my mother bought in 1980. Drawing on my father’s French-Canadian heritage, my mom’s new business was named La Petite Deli and quickly established a following for housemade soups, sandwiches and desserts. We also operated a small catering business on the side with a focus on quality, fresh foods.
La Petite Deli was sold ten years later. At the same time, I graduated from college with a business degree and went on to work in marketing and advertising for over 30 years. However, my desire and passion for creating innovative cuisine continued; weekends were spent decompressing in the kitchen and taking cooking classes. In 2007, my husband David and I started a catering company called La Petite Cuisine, LLC and focused on high quality and thoughtfully sourced local ingredients, all while pondering the idea of opening a brick and mortar at some point in the future.
