Founder and former owner of the dearly departed Les Enfants Terribles (recently morphed to Skal) is back in the game. Stefan Jonot, who sold his interest in the beloved French restaurant two years ago, has his sights set just a few blocks to the southeast. As in, kitty corner from the Gouverneur Hospital complex.

As with his prior Lower East Side venture, the proposed 10-table bistro is to feature French cuisine with a “focus on locally-sourced and organic products.” The stated goal at 173 Henry Street (aka 16 Jefferson) is to offer “good food at an affordable price.” To that end, Jonot seeks permission to serve full liquor on premise, and plans a menu that includes breakfast, lunch, and dinner.
