Le French Diner was just resurrected under new ownership
Le French Diner made its illustrious return at 188 Orchard Street this week. A giddy Boogie reader writes to inform us that the soft opening was Tuesday evening. He says, “Spoke to the guys behind the bar, who were French, and so is the chef apparently. The menu looks good.”
Indeed, fans of the old will definitely pleased with the new. It remains a minimalist joint with homey, exposed brick atmosphere. Purists might be disheartened to learn, however, that Zucco’s name is no longer associated with the restaurant proper. It’s simply Le French Diner now.
Pierre Moulin is the dude keeping the spirit of Zucco’s alive, after the beloved hang shuttered last fall. He appeared before Community Board 3 in November to secure a wine and beer license. Despite some opposition from people in the building and from the panel, the motion ultimately carried. And the license is now active.
