Le Bilboquet Targets November 20 Opening Date
Le Bilboquet, the upscale French bistro based out of New York City, plans to open for dinner on Thursday, November 20. The restaurant, centrally located in the Buckhead Atlanta mixed-use development, will add lunch service on Monday, December 1, and brunch on Sunday, December 7.
Menu items will include Cajun chicken served with pomme frites and green salad, crab-and-guacamole salad, steak au poivre, salmon tartare, and chocolate mousse. Executive chef Julien Jouhannaud, who worked under the Michelin star-awarded Alain Ducasse, will oversee the restaurant's culinary direction, according to a release. Leading the kitchen at the Atlanta location is chef de cuisine Jean Louis Sangare, who has been with Le Bilboquet for 15 years.
The restaurant's design will feature floor-length windows surrounding an L-shaped interior dining area and bar, a two-color terrazzo floor, pewter counter at the bar, blue velvet banquettes, vintage brass light fixtures. On the outdoor patio, look for woven rattan chairs and tables.
