Queens Village Is Getting Another French Restaurant
And the Gallic invasion just won't stop. Via Food and Drinq:
A Gallic project we just heard about: Bistro La Minette, on Sixth Street, near Bainbridge. It's the building with the gigantic Dalmatian mural. Chef-owner Peter Woolsey, who did time at Washington Square, Striped Bass and Le Mas Perrier (after a few years in Paris at Lucas Carton) hopes to open his "city French bistro" in March; he's applying for a liquor license. Alas, the Dalmatian has to go, to Woolsey's dismay. "I know it's a Philly icon," he told me. "But it's peeling and graffiti-ed up at the bottom and it doesn't go with our decor."
