Small French bistro, authentic French dishes, excellent food, good service
Welcome to Philippe French Bistro & Bakery! We are excited to share our passion for creative cuisine that showcases both classic and innovative French dishes and pastries made with quality, locally sourced ingredients that allow the natural flavors of our food to convey a story.
Eating “feeds” the body and we hope that dining at Philippe will be an experience that also feeds the mind, spirit and soul. Our guests will experience a fun, casual atmosphere complemented with friendly and personalized service that as a family-owned business will be delivered by our family with pride.
Raised on his family’s cognac vineyard in France, Chef/Owner Philippe Boutinet became an apprentice chef in his hometown of Cognac, France at the age of thirteen, realizing early on that he had a love for food and hospitality. Once in the US, Philippe spent his formative years working with several renowned chefs: Thomas Keller of French Laundry, Patrick O’Connell of The Inn at Little Washington, Michel Richard of Citronelle, amongst others, who helped shape his style and gastronomic skills.
We all likely recall a good meal or favorite dessert as part of our life’s milestone celebrations. Food has the unique ability to connect us with the people and events of our past. Philippe is excited to bring his heritage and passion to Fort Collins- our logo, the “caleche” (French for “carriage”), honors not just our legacy and family traditions but also our combined love of good times and great food, making Philippe French Bistro & Bakery a deeply personal venture.
