Osceola Bistro. Newly opened in October 2011, this American-style bistro is locally-owned and operated by Vero Beach native, Chef Christopher Bireley. Located in historic downtown Vero Beach, Osceola Bistro has two namesakes. It is first named after Chief Osceola, a Seminole Indian who became an influential leader in Florida’s Second Seminole War during the 1800s. Second, the bistro’s address is on 13th Avenue just off of State Road 60 (one-way 20th Avenue) which was historically known as Osceola Boulevard in Vero Beach.

The bistro’s quality of food, consistency of superior service and its unique atmosphere are by far its most appealing attributes. The inside dining room has an open airy feel, with high ceilings, earth-tone color walls, custom trim work and a simplistic, yet elegant décor. Join the hip crowd and have a drink, dinner or both in the bistro’s bar—made of an eco-friendly white limestone and local beach shell material. The bar’s open-air construction connects you to the garden patio dining area that is populated with dozens of lush plants, growing herbs, seasonal décor and a trickling fountain.

Owner and chef, Christopher Bireley is a Vero Beach native that has been honing his craft for over 20 years. Chef Bireley’s passion for food began during his teenage years when he worked as a prep cook at the Black Pearl in Vero Beach. After receiving his four year business degree, Chef Bireley followed his dream and received a Culinary Arts Degree at Johnson & Wales in Charleston, South Carolina. Since then, Chef Bireley has traveled the world preparing exotic cuisines in St. Kitts in the West Indies, on the coast of Ireland and in northern Italy where he lived with and worked for a local family that owned and operated an authentic Italian restaurant. Here in the States, Chef Bireley has prepared cuisines in well-known “foodie” destinations such as Napa Valley and Charleston and has worked with celebrity and award winning chefs such as Cindy Pawlcyn of Mustards Grill in the Napa Valley as well as Michael Chiarello, who opened the critically acclaimed Tra Vigne restaurant in the Napa Valley. While in Charleston, Chef Bireley also had the opportunity to work with Tom Colicchio owner of Craft in New York City and current judge on the TV show Top Chef.

You will find that Chef Bireley’s creations carry influences from many of the locations he has traveled and lived. And he takes pride in preparing his dishes with the purest and freshest ingredients available. In an effort to reduce the restaurant’s carbon footprint and to support the local economy, Chef Bireley searches for and uses fresh local food as much as possible. On any given night, you will most likely find him stepping out of the kitchen for a few moments visiting with tables to make sure your meal was prepared to your satisfaction and answer any questions you may have.
