Fleenor’s Restaurant and Bar

Fleenor’s is located in downtown Santa Ana where the old Bistro 400 used to be. Remember the old Bistro 400? We used to frequent that place in years past. Enjoyed hanging out there in the afternoon and having a Martini or two. Sadly the Bistro closed its doors for the last time a few years…
