Another north end restaurant to open

Agricola Street becoming a dining hub.


Ludovic Eveno, who has worked as a chef in France and locally at Bish and its reincarnation, Bicycle Thief, has purchased the building at 2540 Agricola Street, just across from the liquor store at the corner of Charles Street. He intends to open a restaurant in the space next spring, taking his time "doing it right," he says, hiring in an interior decorating and carefully laying plans.

The 32-year-old Eveno is holding his cards close to the vest, and won't even reveal the name of the place, much less what the menu will consist of. He says only that it will be a "neighbourhood restaurant,a friendly restaurant with atmosphere, a happy place to come to share food with friends."

The Agricola area is becoming a bit of a restaurant hub, with Tess (5687 Charles Street, 406-3133) a half block east, Local Source (5783 Charles Street, 454-6014) a half-block west, Cafe Aroma Latino (5780 North Street) on the southwest corner of Agricola and North, FRED (2606 Agricola Street, 407-3733) and Gus' Pub/Ace Burger (2605 Agricola Street, 423-7786) on the northwest and northeast corners of the same intersection and Bridge Brewing Company set to open this month just a tad north, at 2622 Agricola Street.
