Chandler will get a new spot for modern French cuisine later this summer when Fabrice and Mairead Buschtetz open a second location of their Gilbert restaurant, Cuisine & Wine Bistro. The new eatery will take over the former home of Earnest (formerly Cork), which closed in March after less than a year in business.
The Buschtetzes opened Cuisine & Wine Bistro at 1422 West Warner Road in Gilbert just over a year ago. The restaurant serves French fare with a twist, with options ranging from entrecôte grillée beurre reduction vin rouge (ribeye wine and shallot butter) to chorizo croquettes with cheese and potato served with Sriracha aioli. The couple moved to the United States less than three years ago, and run the restaurant along with their children and a daughter-in-law.
Cuisine & Wine Bistro's Chandler restaurant will be located at 4955 South Alma School Road and will serve the same menu as its sister restaurant. The restaurant will accommodate about 100 diners and will serve will cocktails, apertifs, and digestifs, in addition to wine.
Cuisine & Wine Bistro in Chandler is expected to open in August. For more information, check the Cuisine & Wine Bistro website.
