The short lived Bharati Indian restaurant is apparently going to be replaced by a bakery & cafe called La Jolie Bleue.
Bharati took over the former (and original) location of Dolcezza, 1560 Wisconsin Ave. It only opened last summer, but sadly never seemed to find an audience and closed this spring.
Renovations have been taking place recently in the space, and a vaguely nautical theme seemed to dominate (although the space seemed to keep the same general shape as Bharati, which really was the same as Dolcezza). But a sign went up yesterday announcing the June 29th opening of the new restaurant.
La Jolie Bleue is French for the beautiful blue, which is probably an ocean reference. And suggests that it will be a French style bakery and cafe. We’ve already got a couple of those around, but people seem to like them! Sadly there is no information available online about the project and no other contact info available. So we’ll see what they have in store!
