The much-loved French bistro Le Petit Marche has closed — but it will be reborn with a touch of Southern comfort.
Daniella Silone’s Brooklyn Heights restaurant was shuttered on New Years Eve after three years, but fans of good eating got some good news when Silone announced that she and the eatery’s former chef Robert Weiner (pictured) would reopen as Bread and Butter, a “comfort food” joint.
Weiner promised an old school menu featuring deviled short ribs, seafood gumbo, and, naturally, biscuits and gravy.
“We’re cookin’ up good, slow-cooked, stick-to-your-ribs dishes,” he said. “The food, the price, and the way we’re serving it reflects the economy right now.”
He agreed that Le Petit Marche would be missed, but added, “We’re so enthusiastic to turn the page and see what happens.”
So goodbye, Coq au Vin, hello, Southern Fried Chicken!
Bread and Butter [46 Henry St. at Cranberry Street, (718) 858-9605].
