Coolest Place for Newest Cuisine On The Coast

Zesty Baguette Bistro

4418 Commons Drive East, Destin, FL

(850) 460-8797

Two types of cuisine are fusing together to provide a dining experience unique to the Emerald Coast. The Zesty Baguette Bistro brings traditional French and modern Vietnamese cooking right to your table.  Duc Tran and Dr. Dao are the masterminds behind the new restaurant that opened in April.  

 The Baguette Bistro got its name from the classic French baguette that was the first item the French introduced to Vietnam. A connection between the two cultures emerged from the French residing in Vietnam for over 100 years.  Because of this, over 60% of Vietnam’s culture can be accredited to the French. 

Dr. Dao, a local to the area, and Duc Tran, who used to reside in Atlanta, knew they were on to something when they brainstormed the concept of the Baguette Bistro. And they were right. “Every day more volume and more volume” was used by Tran to describe the growing amounts of customers since the restaurant opened in April. The menu includes dishes that will utterly surprise people in a most wonderful way and “it is very unlikely they have had anything like this before,” says Tran. From Vietnamese pho to French beef roulettes and a southern buttermilk chicken sandwich accompanied with French butter and gooey Swiss cheese on a Ciabatta roll, your sophisticated pallet is sure to be tantalized. 

 There are plenty of exciting additions coming to the Baguette Bistro! Happy hour is in the works and will last from 5pm-7pm with offerings of appetizers at 50% off. A catering menu is coming soon and is certain to make any event effortless for the host and delicious for the guests. The restaurant is also available for group gatherings of up to 100 people. Enjoy a welcoming atmosphere and friendly service all while taking your taste buds around the world right from the Emerald Coast.
