Santos Uy, co-owner of Bacaro LA and the more recently opened Mignon wine bar, both in Downtown, is ready for his follow up act. He's currently in the planning stages to open an eatery inspired by the bistros of Paris, specifically Frenchie and Les Papilles. The menu will change weekly and offer just two appetizers, two mains, one cheese accompaniment, and one dessert. Diners can expect to drop around $24 to $30 for a three course meal before supplementals which will include a foie gras torchon, caviar, truffles, gougeres, etc.
Anyone familiar with Santos or his previous establishments knows that he does love his wine. And at this to-be-nammed Frenchified eatery Santos will offer 40 to 50 bottles of mostly French wine priced between $24 and $60. So, pretty reasonable. Three whites, three reds, two dessert wines priced between $6 and $15 by the glass, too.
Depending on the space the restaurant may or may not offer lunch. And a late night menu of steak frites and croque monsieur could also some into play. As for a location, Santos has considered spaces downtown but this time around he's thinking about expading away from home turf to the east side. Stay tuned. [EaterWire]
