A Brief Chat With Jeff Fuld of Elle Wine Bistro

Posted By on Fri, Oct 8, 2010 at 2:39 PM

We spoke with Jeff Fuld today about Elle Wine Bistro, the new incarnation of Elle Wine Country Restaurant that he's opening at 2970 N. Campbell Ave., in the Campbell Plaza Shopping Center.

Fuld said the new Elle will be “lighter, brighter and a little more intimate.” The new menu hasn’t been finalized, but Fuld said new creations focusing on local ingredients and favorites from the original Elle will be on it.

He also mentioned a wine-preservation system that will allow him to offer more wines by the glass than ever before.

Fuld said the restaurant should have a Facebook page up before long. Until then, check in at Elle's website for more information.

By the way, the old Elle spot at 3048 E. Broadway Blvd. is going to be a new Sushi Garden location. Chun Kim, who owns two Sushi Garden locations with his mother, Chaesu Kim, says they’ll shut down the restaurant at 15 N. Alvernon Way when the new location opens in spring of 2011.
