“We want to open a small restaurant, very French. My wife will have a shop next door where she sells her line of lavender clothing…I want to create a small French world in the Palisades, but not so ambitious as my past restaurants. I want the next one to be on a very human scale. Inexpensive, accessible to the whole family…Closing Anisette hurt so much. I need to heal. I think working on a new restaurant is the way.” - Chef Alain Giraud, on his plans following the closure of Anisette. [Zagat/Shindler’s Dish]
