Since dearly departed Cajun-Creole restaurant Roux closed at 4201 Fremont Ave. N in February, the most frequent question in Eater Seattle’s inbox has been “What’s replacing it?” Finally, the answer: A “modern French restaurant” called Le Coin, which translates to “the corner,” is coming soon.

Le Coin will serve “French food with an American twist. It will be the kind of place you come to hang out or come for a special occasion,” according to a dedicated tipster who ran into the owner. The interior sounds like it’s the same casual-swanky setting as Roux, with the large central bar surrounded by open booths of dark wood and red button tufted leather, though the tipster admitted it was hard to see clearly from the outside what renovations had been done.

The official website suggests the opening date was planned for late June, so hopefully it won’t be much longer now. The Facebook page has a black-and-white illustration of the Fremont Troll and an image of the name Le Coin along with the French line “ça doit être sympa,” which translates to “it must be nice.” An ad on jobs website Poached, seeking all front of house staff, says the owners are “a small restaurant group looking for career minded individuals who want to learn the entire scope of the restaurant business and grow within our emerging company.”

There’s no further information available right now, and the restaurant hasn’t responded to requests for comment. As always, readers should reach out if they find out more.
