“Mezza” restaurant in Woodstock, at 5520 S.E. Woodstock Boulevard, previously a Lebanese restaurant, became an authentic French bistro just one year ago this month, and is now adopting a name that matches its new cuisine: “Bergerac” – restaurant and catering. The new European owners, Gisella from England and Joris from France, have transformed the menu and interiors into a local neighborhood bistro with a French touch. The menu is a nod to the classic French cooking that Head Chef Joris grew up with in the Southwest of France, alongside dishes inspired by travels throughout Southern Europe and North Africa. House-made duck confit, escargots, and creme brûlée are just some of the items that customers have reviewed well, alongside the weekly specials. “Bergerac prides itself on offering medium price points, a curated wine list, French-inspired cocktails, and very friendly servers,” Gisella tells THE BEE. The telephone number is 503/777-6399.
