If you've been by the corner of Gold and 3rd downtown anytime since January, you've probably noticed the corner shop (formerly Ooh-Aah jewelry and before that Ruby Shoesday) undergoing some major changes.
A new French bistro - "P'tit Louis
" - is opening today after much anticipation. This is John Phinizy's first restaurant, and he's brought with him the brilliant minds behind Scalo and Brasserie La Provence. If their menu
is any indication, this is going to be quite the fancy little downtown hot spot, with daily specials including a Râgout du Jour
and a Quiche du Jour
The interior alone is really something. The folks at P'tit Louis have really poured a lot into making into an authentic bistro, with fresh cut flowers, honeycomb flooring, dark wood bar and wainscoting, and vintage photos and posters on the wall. French music happily bubbles over into the space.
P'tit Louis opens today, and if things are successful, expect to see a few more open up around town.
They're on the corner of 3rd and Gold at 228 Gold Ave SW
. The phone number is 505-314-1111
