Chef Anthony Devoti's rotating concept, Mon Petit Chou, debuts tonight at Five Bistro (5100 Daggett Avenue; 314-773-5553). The pop-up features French cuisine in a closed-off section of the restaurant; the regular menu is also available.
Mon Petit Chou is reservation-only and takes place in the back of Five Bistro, sectioned off by a beautiful bookshelf built by Devoti's father and uncle. It's available Wednesday through Saturday until April 12; after that a new concept will be introduced.
"I'm thrilled to be doing this -- it's like opening a new restaurant but not having to leave, hire new staff, deal with a new landlord, et cetera," Devoti told us in January. It's a prix-fixe, five-course menu (though really seven, with an amuse bouche and after-dessert treat) for $45 per person, plus $25 for optional wine pairings.
Devoti didn't seem at all nervous on the eve of his new venture. "Cooking food is the easy part!" he laughed.
