Grab a fresh croissant at this French market and eatery

Yavonne Sarber, owner of de-NOVO and Manifesto, is giving local Francophiles something to get excited about.

She's opening up a French eatery and market this fall at 122 S. High St.where you can sip a chocolat chaud, grab a fresh croissant or beignet and enjoy a large outdoor courtyard in the heart of downtown.

"I want to create a place where the kind of energy you feel on the streets and in the markets of Paris can exist in Columbus," Sarber said in a release.

The 5,500-square-foot market, named Chez du Bon (meaning "House of Good"), will have grab-and-go foods, a bakery, coffee shop (with coffee from Cafe du Monde in New Orleans), charcuterie and a flower shop.

A 1,000-square-foot French restaurant will sit on the mezzanine level. Sarber is currently in search of a chef to run the kitchen there.

Expect French-inspired everything, right down to the wrought iron fencing and canopies decorating the exterior. Bon appetit!
