Sebastien Chamaret, the pastry chef at Orsay who spent four years as chef de cuisine at the legendary La Goulue (and before that served at Jules and La Mirabelle), tells us that he’s opening a place of his own in the former home of Cornichon, at 251 Grand Street in Williamsburg. Starting in May, the open kitchen will send out “seasonal, market driven” French food to a dining room of 40 seats, plus 15 seats at the bar, and 25 more seats in a “nice, quiet” summer garden.
