Jean Robert opening new restaurant

CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) - Chef Jean-Robert de Cavel is opening a new restaurant in downtown Cincinnati.

Jean-Robert's Table will be at 713 Vine Street (formerly Buddakhan).

"We have an excellent local clientele as well as wonderful parking adjacent to our new restaurant which will allows for customer ease of visitation," de Cavel said in a statement.

de Cavel left Pigall's eight months ago. Since then, he says he has had many opportunities to open restaurants outside of Cincinnati.

"I felt it was important, based on my family's 15 plus years of Cincinnati involvement and living, to continue my home base here in Cincinnati," said de Cavel. "Jean-Robert's Table gives me that opportunity to once again create a home base from where I can reside and project my culinary skills."

The dining concept will feature seasonal fresh dishes influenced by French country cooking by region from Provence to Paris.

"I want the concept to be casual, fun and vibrant," said de Cavel. "The menu will feature price points indicative of our current economy but will not sacrifice the quality of ingredients or service for which I have become known."

de Cavel hopes to have the restaurant open by the end of the year.
