Another Binghamton Restaurant Prepares to Close Its Doors
Food lovers in Binghamton are about to lose a dining option as another restaurant goes dark.
Bistro 163 owner Michael Astin said he intends to close the business this weekend.
Astin opened the restaurant at 163 Washington Street about three years ago. It's located just north of Court Street near the main entrance to the MetroCenter office complex.
Astin, who was born in the United Kingdom, came to Broome County from New York City when his sister was a student at Binghamton University.
Astin said he's tired of snow so he's decided to move to Los Angeles. He said he didn't know what might happen to the space now occupied by Bistro 163.
The restaurant is scheduled to close Sunday or, Astin said, "when the food runs out."
Before Bistro 163 opened, the location had been home to Sip of Seattle cafe and the Courtyard Gifts store.
