Village Bistro to open on East Cherry Street

The Village Bistro
February 2014

The Village Bistro, a halal and kosher style eatery, plans a grand opening on Friday, taking East Cherry Street space formerly occupied by D&R’s Deli and for many years by Big Belly Deli.

Big Belly Deli had occupied the space from about early 2005 until March 2011.  D&R replaced it later in 2011, until it closed up shop last year.

For the uninitiated, here’s the answer to your question, “What’s halal meat?”

The building at 78 E. Cherry St., built in 1900, is on the market for $265,000 and includes apartments on the upper floors, but the retail tenant has a lease that would have to be honored by a new owner, according to Bob Markey of Striker Realty . Property taxes run about $10,400 annually, according to property records.

  1. Based on what exactly? The last two delis in that space lasted more than a year and the one before it 6 years. Of course, that doesn’t necessarily predict future success, but it does seem to be a good space for a deli if history is an indication.

    There seems to be at least some interest in halal: of the folks who read this post yesterday, almost 1/3 clicked the link about “What’s halal meat?”

  2. This place is delicious ??? !!! … i’m making them part of my friday dinners. very well priced, courteous, friendly and super clean !
