Cafe Bizou Santa Monica is back

I passed by on my walk tonight. They're now re-opened for dinner Wed-Sat. The better news is that they're back under the original ownership/team. A few years back they had a switch in ownership/management and frankly went way downhill, then closed for dinner. I'm not sure of the business dealings, but they're back to the original ownership.
I spoke with one of the owners/chef and he said he'd be overseeing their return to the successful formula. That being very solid, if unspectacular, classics at a very reasonable tally. The old menu, which looks just like the Sherm.Oaks menu is in play. Monkfish, Lobster Bisque, Au Poivre, The $1 salad or soup add-on, nightly special, and best of all $2 corkage remain. There aren't many places this way to bring a bottle of wine and get an extensive meal for $30-35 including tip. Hopefully they'll return to form, and do well, but remain less crowded than the Sherman Oaks branch.
