Parc: Latest Steven Starr Opening?

Are they open, or just giving away baguettes on the street? They have a large ad in the Ritz Playbill--any reports? Having a gift certificate that could be used at Parc, I am eager to hear first reactions from fellow Chowhounds...

      July 14, says an email today. Let this be his atonement for closing down the blessed, and dearly missed Blue Angel.

        Just received an email from SRO - apparently the official opening date is Bastille Day, Monday, July 14th (which is pretty much as "mid July" as possible).

      2. I'm hoping that this place will not only have great food and the proper atmosphere but be a part of the Philly scene for years to come. I was in NY last weekend and took my wife and one year old daughter to Balthazar. July 5th I'm figuring that it would be a reasonable wait for lunch; one hour to an hour and a half. Anyway, where else can you have great food in a fashionable setting with a one year old and fit right in? All answer that, a French bistro done right. Here's hoping that Parc can be everything and more and be around to share with my wife and daughter for years to come.
