Many of the restaurant’s employees, including Carr, also work for La Fontaine Bleue. Carr said the restaurant will make La Fontaine Bleue more open to the public, rather than simply for large banquet affairs. While the restaurant does not have a private room for parties, Carr said reservations for groups or office parties are welcome.
The group plans to open a bakery next door to the restaurant.
