We haven’t been to Rumford in a while and were surprised to be reminded that it isn’t all that far away. Just a 50 minute drive from home and we were following signs from Route 2 that directed us to Brian’s Bistro in the Hotel Harris in the downtown section of the city.
The beauty of this space hits you immediately. The tall ceilings painted in black and accented with wide beams painted white are sure to grab your attention. The big open room with large windows and gorgeous old wooden floors has been artfully decorated by Jessica, who owns the Bistro with her husband Brian, who is the chef. Just so happens she has a degree in design and has put that degree to good use. I fell in love with the candle collections hanging in the front windows. Those candles combined with soft lighting make this restaurant more intimate.
