The partners behind fancy French UES restaurant Le Bilboquet are plotting another French restaurant on the Upper East Side together.

Billionaire Ron Perelman and restaurateur Philippe Delgrange will be opening a to-be-named restaurant at 27 East 62nd Street, between Madison and Park avenues. It’s on the first floor of a building Perelman purchased in 2014. The new spot will only be about 50 seats and will focus on the cuisine of Provence, according to insiders. Look for a February opening.

Perelman and Delgrange have been busy lately, with a splashy Hamptons offshoot over the summer and a casual cafe called Cafe Bilboquet earlier this fall. Le Bilboquet has been on the Upper East Side for more than 30 years, developing a reputation for solid French fare and dishes like Cajun chicken with salad and fries. It’s known as an upscale bistro that’s popular with Europeans, celebrities, and lunchtime power players.
