Chicago mag's Dish snagged an interview with Martial Noguier and his new gig at Bistronomic—the new casual focused French eatery 312DD told you about Wednesday night.
On his vision:
"Like a modern bistro... Not a bistro that you find with croque-monsieur and blah blah blah."
Structure of menu:
"I’m going to do small plates, medium plates, large plates. The small plates will be like a big salad with Capriole goat cheese and white truffle oil. It will be Belgian endive with Great Hill blue cheese. It will be also, for middle plates, a salade niçoise, a tuna tartare, a scallop. And for entrées, it will be like Amish chicken breast with mushroom ragout, Italian parsley, and lemon confit."
On restaurant's setting:
"We are going to do some wood tables. We are going to put placemats. Beautiful tables. Like a wood. Dark wood tables, you know. To be more like bistro-feeling. No tablecloths."
Bistronomic's set to open Feb. 1 with entree prices ranging $17 to $23.
