Park Sloper Christine Snell (above left with Roddy Moon and Heidi Bloedel), co-owner of Loulou (222 DeKalb Ave. at Adelphi Street) in Fort Greene, gave GO Brooklyn a sneak peek at her second restaurant, Cocotte (337 Fifth Ave. at Fourth Street) on Aug. 1.

While the bar is now open, Cocotte’s kitchen, under the direction of her husband, chef William Snell, won’t be serving up their "country French" menu until Aug. 21.

"While Loulou has a more coastal French menu, Cocotte is more eclectic French and not so focused on seafood," Christine explained. "The name, a term of endearment - ’little chicken’ - is a nickname for our second daughter Juliette."

Cocotte’s menu promises poulet a la Thanksgiving ("home style" chicken with garlic mashed potatoes and fresh vegetables), seared filet of brook trout (served over orange-scented wild rice and grilled asparagus) and of course, steak frites. The Snells are also offering a daily vegetarian special and the beloved French hors d’oeuvres: escargot, frog legs and foie gras.

Christine says they were lucky to have found such a great Park Slope location to open Cocotte. Rather, Park Slope should feel lucky to have the Snells.
