Stefan Jonot, who founded the late French charmer Les Enfants Terribles on the east end of Canal before that street was even cool, is planning a comeback in the neighborhood. According to Bowery Boogie, he's pitching a 45-seat seasonal French bistro to the Community Board, which will focus on "seasonal, locally sourced and organic products; affordably priced." The restaurant will be open throughout the day, and a sample menu includes pastries from Bakehouse in the West Village, along with bagels and bialys from nearby Kossar's for breakfast, a handful of sweet and savory crepe options for lunch, and a fairly traditional French menu of a daily roast, vegetarian couscous, and marget de canard for dinner. Jonot's last restaurant closed in March 2013 and morphed into Icelandic restaurant Skal. 173 Henry Street, Lower East Side
