First-time restaurateur and chef Olivier Jouannard opens Le Ptit Paris tonight in the former Da Vincenzo space. Jouannard focuses on simple French fare similar to the plates he once turned out as a chef de cuisine at Flea Market Café. Expect trout almondine, hanger steak with shallot butter, and coq au vin. The décor is trs simple, befitting a neighborhood café (even if the French wines are served in glasses rather than humble tumblers). Hours are Monday through Thursday, noon to 11 p.m., Friday and Saturday until 11 p.m., and Sundays 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Click through the slideshow to see the space, and preview the menus below.
