Brasserie Coquette opened this week on Arbutus Street, taking over the space formerly occupied by Gramercy Grill.
Coquette took over the 1700 sqft space at 2685 Arbutus in March and after a quick cosmetic reno opened softly last weekend.
The fine folks at Scout Magazine got a look inside the 55-seat restaurant (with a 15-seat bar and a permit for a 24-seat patio in the works) last week and gave it rave reviews.
“Walking through the space, the style references are visible. There is a simple but classically French colour palette of blue, tobacco brown, black and crisp white, and unique design details – like vintage gold light fixtures and a wood-framed antique mirror – provide added warmth. Tile work – in the entry and on a raised platform featuring two sultry looking velvet-clad booths – adds texture. Full length windows let in ample light. It’s a pretty room,” wrote Scout’s Michelle Sproule.
