Fancy food with a sense of humor in popular Surrey Center, Bistro 491’s menu is inventive and changes seasonally. Their vegetarian dishes (especially the ricotta gnocchi) are just as good as their steaks, and their drinks and desserts are decadent to say the least. Best of all? They don’t require fancy dress to go along with the fancy food.
