Casa Mon Amour Goes Gallic!

Yesterday as I was running errands I noticed Casa Mon Amour was open. Well, their business was not open but their front door was so I popped in to see what’s up. What I found was Beatrice reviewing the new menu with her staff before her “grand re-opening” this week. I got a sneak peek and I have to say it looks pretty good; those of you who are vegetarians (as I am) can anticipate a wider selection of entrees. I have been promised that Tomatoes Provencal will be in the offering. (If you have not had this dish, try it. It is wonderful!) Who will be preparing these gustatory delights you ask? A chef from none other than La Ripaille: a very nice French Provincial Restaurant in the West Village.

The “new and improved” Casa Mon Amour should be up and running in earnest tomorrow, September 3rd. Check it out!

  2. Interesting. Miss Heather, have you (or anyone for that matter) dined at La Brique (formerly Le Brique). I can’t bring myself to try it after the Little Korea debacle. I hope Casa Mon Amor has better luck with French cuisine! I really liked their Latin American fare.

  4. Actually I haven’t (eaten at Le Brique). Given that I have eaten at Ripaille before I can attest to the skill of this chef: he’s good. This change at Casa Mon Amour could be a very good thing!

  6. the new menu sounds fantastic. it’ll make the pain of losing their ceviche a little easier.
