Ballard Bistro replaces Rizzo’s French Dip

A new restaurant has taken over the small spot on 15th Ave NW that used to be Rizzo’s French Dip.

Ballard Bistro opened last week at 7334 15th Avenue NW. The new bistro features a short menu which includes French Dip sandwiches (which the new owner tells us is better than before), pancake sandwiches (yes, a sandwich between two pancakes), BBQ pork bum and curry chicken with rice. Ballard Bistro is open six days a week from 10:30 a.m. to 7 p.m., they’re closed on Sunday. (Thanks Leanne for the tip!)

Same owners or new management? The french dip sandwich made by Rizzo was underwhelming.

One hopes that this business owner can survive without resorting to slave labor, like Rizzo did (no wages, not allowed to leave, what would you call it?)

Interesting menu choices…no one is offering curry chicken to go…good niche? British?

the spraypainted grand opening sign does not inspire confidence.

I wonder if the inspiration for serving a French dip came from the giant “FRENCH DIP” painted on the side of the building.

I’m just happy it’s not another pho, sushi, burger or pizza place.
