Fresh from a Bastille Day celebration that included costumes, accordions, and a sing-along of the French national anthem, French bistro Chateau du Lac (2037 Metairie Road, Metairie, 504-831-3773; www.chateaudulacbistro.com) is moving ahead with plans to open its New Orleans location by mid-August at 857 Fulton St., the space formerly occupied by La Boca, says general manager Jack Stahl.
The CBD location will be called Chateau du Lac Warehouse Bistro, and will feature an expanded wine list and menu.
"We want the new location to be a little bit more creative, a little bit more adventurous," Stahl says. "We'll be adding in fresh items that appeal to a downtown crowd."
La Boca (870 Tchoupitoulas St., 504-525-8205; www.labocasteaks.com) is in the site formerly occupied by the Italian restaurant A Mano.
