Bistro Wagon Rouge

I have been meaning to try Bistro Wagon Rouge for a while. Tucked away on Powell and Victoria Drive, it’s somewhat out of the way, so I’ve been lazy. Last week I finally made the trek there with a few friends to try it out and was so happy I did. Featuring French cuisine, Bistro…
