With Luc, Bistrot Voilà and La Côte all along the same block of Madison Valley, you'd think you were in Paris, non? One of the three will soon morph into a Tuscan spot with a familiar name: Cantinetta.
According to the Madison Valley Blog, Arnaud Guérin of La Côte has done a deal with Trevor Greenwood to transform his creperie into Bar Cantinetta this summer.
Greenwood opened the first Cantinetta in Wallingford in 2009 and followed it up with a Bellevue store a year and a half later. He and his business partners also opened Mercato Stellina in Old Bellevue, first as a sort of grocery, then remodeled the space as a Tuscan pizzeria.
Bar Cantinetta will offer a wine-bar approach to food and drink, with Italian wines by the glass and home-made pasta dishes.
