The team behind forthcoming Mt. Baker bistro A La Bonne Franquette got in touch to say the doors will open the last week of August.

Chef Hamed Elnazir has posted a sample summer menu for his bistro, which hews classic French but incorporates elements of Africa and other regions of Europe. However he's expecting that menu to change frequently at the whim of the markets.
