When Z Cuisine and Z Cuisine Bar À Côté two doors down consolidated last year, chef/owner Patrick Dupays closed the right-hand dining space to nightly guests, using it instead for large groups and special dinners. And now it seems that the entire operation has closed — or at least is on an extended hiatus. A note on the restaurant's website says simply "temporarily closed," and messages on its Facebook page read:
Fermé pour le moment
To all of us who fell in Love at Z Cuisine
For ever ' La vie en Rose '
A call to Z Cuisine yielded an additional recorded message stating that the beloved neighborhood French bistrot would be "closed for a few months." Although there's no indication of the length of the sabbatical, we're hoping that the closure is indeed temporary: This cozy space was a favorite stop for absinthe, foie gras and Gallic charm.
