Richmond oenofiles take note: The rumored wine bar project from Chapeau! chef-owner Philippe Gardelle appears to be moving forward at the bistro’s former space at 1408 Clement Street (Chapeau moved to 126 Clement last summer). Via the liquor license app, we believe we have the name: Belle Epoque. And via Zagat’s reports from last fall, we know that Gardelle will be serving an international list of wines along with French small plates, with just five tables and a few seats at the bar. We’ll update you as we learn more.
