Second of all, did you know about this new restaurant that's coming to Williamston?

New Restaurant Coming to Williamston

I was doing my typical Facebook scrolling and saw that a new restaurant called Niko's Taverna is coming to Williamston. It's going to be located at 151 S Putnam Street in Williamston, taking over the old Bistro location.

Niko's Taverna will serve up Greek and American bar food in a casual setting, which is a bit different than the Bistro's previous vibe, which was a bit more upscale dining.

Patrons and the owners were very sad to see the Bistro go, but seem to be very hopeful about this new endeavor.

I seem to be a little behind when it comes to this change because I never had the pleasure of enjoying a meal at the Bistro, but I am certainly looking forward to giving Niko's a try. Niko's Taverna is owned and operated by the same people as The Soup Spoon Cafe here in Lansing, and their breakfast, lunch, and dinner menus are all outstanding. And don't miss out on the delicious bread pudding.

No word just yet on exactly when it'll be opening, but they will be accepting job applications after the new year.
