Hello I need Help naming a new resturant in denver colorado. It will be a busy bistro serving local produce and lots of farmy dishes.

The decor of the inside will be farmhouse style. It needs a name this is killing me. Help!

Sounds like that place on Little House on the Prarie - Walnut Grove? I guess that would throw someone looking for a place to eat....

I like how you have "BUSY bistro" in the site description : D    I hope it is indeed  : )

You could go with something cliche', but sends a message as to the cusine, like "Grandma's House".

Or something solid, like "Heartland Bistro" - but you are in the Rockies, not the Plains...

Maybe a take from some highend steak houses, like "The Plow and the Kettle"

If you have a blended Bistro/Bar you could aim for a demographic and just call it "Rooster's"

If you use any of my suggestions to form a name, I will expect an open invitation to stage in your kitchen whenever I'm up there, and maybe a cold beer after service.  ; D

Just a thought - the farmhouse references and the word "bistro" don't seem to go together.  Isn't a bistro a small simple (urban) french place?  A small parisian restaurant?  American farm cooking is another thing, I'd think you'd need another word than bistro.

Just call it "Brunson's"

People tend to remember real names much better and faster. Avoid things like bistro etc. in the name;  it unnecessarely segments the market; some may already avoid visiting your place because they don't like bistro-style. Let people find out for themselves what your place is. Also, it will give you the freedom to head in another direction when -worst case scenario- the original formula doesn't work.

You could shorten the name into "Brun"

It even means "brown" in french. It would work in France, but the english pronounciation is horrible. So, I like Brunson's better, it's alive and you don't start guessing for the meaning of the word.
