Boucherie — the Riverbend's much-celebrated home for contemporary Southern cuisine — officially makes its move around the corner today. The restaurant will reopen in the former Cafe Granada space (1506 S. Carrollton Ave.) at 5:30 p.m. just in time for dinner service.
While Chef Nathanial Zimet's menu will remain the same, the cottage-like feel of Boucherie's former home is gone. The new space is bright and breezy, with exposed brick and an impressive reclaimed wood bar anchoring the back of the restaurant.
Zimet's new wings and daiquiris offshoot, Bourré, is on track to open next week in the former Boucherie space (8115 Jeannette St.). While a menu has yet to be released, sample wings have been popping up on the Boucherie menu for months, including smoked jerked wings with pickled heirloom carrots and lemongrass sticky wings.
