Bistro Coming to the Grove

November 21, 2009

My good friend, Christian Geffrard, is opening the restaurant many of us have been eagerly waiting for. There’s no name yet, but the concept is rock solid. Great food and wine. Locally sourced ingredients. Affordable prices. Casual country atmosphere. Friendly, professional service.

The restaurant will be located at the old Deli in the Grove at 2014 Main Street. Demo starts tomorrow and will likely continue for two months as the tired old interior is transformed into a comfortable European country space.

Christian has a long track record of success in Portland. His last restaurant, Casanis, met with rave reviews before he closed it in 2005 to spend more time with his young family.

Check out the two old reviews I could find online:

Willamette Week- November, 2003
“…there are few better places to contemplate the French paradox than the lovely Bistro Casanis…”

Food & Wine- March, 2004
“Casanis is another kind of classic; it’s a bistro that’s French in style, substance and ownership, with standards like pâté de maison and rabbit stew….”

Christian’s chef will be Mark Cuneo, the prior sous chef at Fratelli in Portland.
So expect more than just typical French cuisine. In fact, the menu will likely have a heavy Italian bent.

Check back often for updates. I intend to post updates and pictures regularly as construction progresses and the new restaurant (insert name!) gets closer to opening.
