In true Downtown fashion, the space is pretty ginormous, seating up to 300 people. According to Bringham Yen, the design is swank-French, with handmade chandeliers, walnut crown moldings and other fine details. Menu details are still being hammered out, but it's along the lines of your typical French bistro fare - Jouvet hails from Paris. There's also an adjacent deli that will open early for sandwiches, pastries and coffee. Think: A Frenchier version of Bottega Louie, which is right across the street. The plan is to open in a couple of weeks, but definitely before the end of November.
