Clubby Upper East Side favorite Le Bilboquet reopened for dinner last night in its newer, bigger digs. After its lease on the original location expired two years ago, the 27-year-old restaurant moved to a new spot three blocks south. After the original closed for good at the beginning of this year, owner Philippe Delgrange promised to reopen by May. That date came and went, as did a second one slated for August. Now, finally, the countdown has come to an end.
There are 100 seats at this iteration of Le Bilboquet, up from the original 35. The restaurant is open now for dinner, and will start serving lunch tomorrow. And yes, they still serve that Cajun chicken.
