There are a few different versions of the origin of the word “Bistro”. Some argue it’s derived from the Russian word “Bystro” which means quickly. As the story goes during the Russian occupation of Paris in the early 1800’s Russian Officers would shout “Bystro” when they wanted to be served quickly.
Another theory is that this word was developed from basement kitchens of Parisian apartments where tenants paid for both room and board. Tenants would supplement their incomes by opening their kitchens to the public. The menus were small and consisted of foods that were easy to prepare, could be made in bulk and that would keep over time.
Today’s Bistros are typically defined by the cuisine they offer. They are generally small and offer simple meals prepared authentically. With today's emphasis on local and sustainable foods Bistros offer a variety of farm to table dishes sourcing locally from surrounding areas farms.
315 is excited to announce our “Classic Bistro” Wine Dinner on September 5th. Chef Louis Moskow will pair his classic French dishes with French wines that are sure to tantalize the senses. And though it’s not quite in the basement of our Parisian Apartment, we still hope that 315 feels like home!

At the end of the day, it is nice to unwind in a comfortable, casual environment where you can be yourself around familiar smiling faces (a place where "everybody knows your name" as in the Cheers theme song). It is even better when this familiarity and comfort is accompanied by great food and a relaxing glass of wine. Add in a beautiful setting with fresh blooming flowers and spectacular sunsets, and you have found your new home.

Just what is a champagne dinner? It is a work of art by Chef Louis Moskow. Louis develops relationships with not only the customers he serves, but also the food and drink that are placed in front of them. During the upcoming champagne dinner, he will pass along the very best of this relationship.
In traditional Louis style he has chosen Ruinart to share so that this Santa Fe evening will be with the best. Top rated by "Wine Spectator," Ruinart is known not only for its distinct aromas and flavors but also its rich history. Ruinart comes from the world's first established champagne house in 1729 which houses original chalk cellars known as a national historic landmark in France. Ruinart uses original bottle shapes from long ago to contain its time perfected champagne.
There is no better way to enjoy this aged pleasure than on the historical old Santa Fe Trail at 315 Restaurant and Wine Bar. Just as Chef Louis has picked out the finest champagne, he has created a menu unique to the evening that will complement the experience. Each course is paired with a specific glass to form a perfect marriage of taste and aroma. There are 4 courses in all featuring sturgeon caviar, lobster tail "eclairs", white sea bass, and grilled wild salmon. All are served with elegant accompaniments. The evening will come to a close with a specialty dessert.
This tasteful journey will be an interactive, sensory exploration of all things Ruinart. Each specific aroma will be separated out into its own vial for enjoyment. As the scents are smelled and the flavors are tasted, a description of this experience will be heard and felt. One can dine while they learn and explore.
Come and be a part of the culture that we call 315. The best service, the best location, the best cuisine, the best drinks, and the best company are found within our historic walls. We would like to welcome you to the family and share this unique and fun dining event with you.
