The West Village restaurant Bar Blanc Bistro (nee Bar Blanc) went through a couple of tweaks and overhauls during its slow death, including a redesign, a chef switch, and new name and concept rejiggering. But this time they seem to be starting fresh.
Zagat reports that it will reopen next month after its summer-long closure as Lowcountry. The owners, still Kiwon Standen and Didier Palange, have brought on Virginia-native William Sullivan to serve will serve southern fare (oh so very trendy right now). Sample dishes, according to Zagat include a bourbon-cider glazed pork chop and grouper with late-summer succotash.
