Orsi's Santa Rosa closed, "replaced" with Bistro 29, french/brittany influenced.

I was on my way to an appointment on Wednesday, and as I was walking up 5th street, I noticed that Orsi's Restaurant was closed (sad! Wanted to try this place. ): ), and there was a large paper banner in the window announcing the opening of a new place, Bistro 29. I believe the sign read that they would be opening on Feb. 2nd. Took a quick look at the menu posted by the front door and noticed tasty-sounding (and relatively affordable!) food, including buckwheat crepes with various fillings including duck, Monterey Bay sardines with potatoes, and a caramel/sea salt ice cream. If I recall correctly, (didn't have a chance to write anything down and I don't have the most photographic of memories) the most expensive item on the menu was just under $30.

The head chef/owner is Brian Anderson, formerly of Cafe Lolo and the Applewood Inn. (both places seem to have had positive reactions from chowhounds, so this bodes well I think)

I hope to check this place out soon...but hopefully others will get there soon and report back. (:

Here's a link to a short blurb about it from the Press Democrat...the bit about Bistro 29 is about halfway through the article: http://tinyurl.com/352p62
