Paris Bistro will occupy 2,035-square-feet of space at the office building. Converting the space into a cafe will cost an estimated $61,000, according to the permit.

Teknion, an office furniture showroom, is also opening inside the BB&T building at Atlantic Station.

Paris Bistro used to be in my office building and it was straight up terrible. Neither Paris nor a bistro, just a bodega with a crappy deli.

Upon first learning this news, I was very excited. Did a quick Google search and reviews were disappointing.

The cafe in the Wells Fargo building used to be a Paris Bistro. I think it’s now called the Atlantic Bistro. As a BB&T building employee, I’m kiiind of excited to get a warm breakfast occasionally. That’s assuming they’ll be serving breakfast… right? Right?!
