Oui, Oui: A French Restaurant for Fort Point, Plus Le Mystery Chef

Not quite Paris, but still.

Seth Greenberg, the nightwizard behind Mistral and the Ames, plans to open a French restaurant in an old textile factory in Fort Point by the spring. The Globe says he's "bullish" on the whole area. Barbara Lynch also notes that opening Menton in the neighborhood while the economy stalled was "crazy crazy crazy," but things have obviously changed in the last couple of years. Young Park, the developer behind the neighborhood's FP3 condos, is building a new complex complete with a huge ground-level restaurant complete with a "celebrity chef" installed at the helm. But who?

So, in terms of local "celebrity" chefs, Barbara Lynch is already there; Joanne Chang is, too, and she's said that she's done expanding for now. Ming Tsai arrives this winter with Blue Dragon. Jody Adams's Trade is just up the street. Michael Schlow is busy opening the Sinclair, and he's opened Tico and Happy's in the past couple years. Ken Oringer is busy opening Toro in New York City. Oh, man, could it be Todd English?

If you have any guesses as to who might like to take over a 6,000-square-foot-space below a massive and gorgeous new apartment complex, let us know.
