Vickie Rapp and Chef Erika Rapp opened Registry Bistro in the summer of 2012. The mother - daughter team dreamed of creating a restaurant that offered an elegant dining experience, while remaining approachable and comfortable for all. A place where their guests would enjoy a casual dinner on a Wednesday, celebrate a special evening together, or dine for significant occasions. With Registry Bistro, the duo has been successful in creating such an environment with both food and service. As a natural extension of their love of creating a beautiful experience for their guest, they have expanded their talents into Registry Catering. Registry Catering is in the business of creating memories. We provide the perfect food and exceptional service and atmosphere to accompany every milestone event in your life.
