A quiet chef shuffle.

It looks like chef David Féau is back in action following a string of middlingly successful pop-ups under the name Coin de Rue. Known for cooking French cuisine, Féau has of late been working the stove at Wally’s in Beverly Hills.

It’s an interesting stop for the former Royce opening chef, considering the upscale casual nature of Wally’s and the Beverly Hills community that surrounds it. Known primarily as a wine shop and small plates bar space, Wally’s is certainly beloved across Los Angeles — but pulling in someone like Féau is a bit of a coup, considering his pedigree. After all Féau is a former James Beard semi-finalist for Best Chef: Pacific, as well as previously holding the title of executive chef at Downtown’s Patina restaurant.

It seems like the move is still rather recent, so Wally’s is working out their new menu now. At least online, there are still the usual suspects: a burger, some lamb chops, a touch of pasta. It will be interesting to see how much of Féau’s French connections come through in future menus, and what the locals think of the stuff.
