Chameau on Fairfax is now... Deli Bar?
Signage went up yesterday. They've opened up the space, but haven't been able to see much else. Anyone know what the new concept is?
oh that's a bummer. chameau was great. i saw that it seemed closed last week, but i guess now it's been confirmed.
Sad to hear Chameau is gone. I'll miss their cool style of French-Moroccan cuisine, especially their excellent fresh fish with charmoula and great couscous
Well, their website claims 'closed for remodeling,' and the ABC license site doesn't show any change of ownership yet, so perhaps it will be a reconcepting of the old menu rather than a full turnover.
Papers are off the window. Space has been converted into a stylish, vaguely Moorish-mod sandwich/salad cafe. Menu posted outside confirms this.... "Chameau Deli Bar"
Duck bastilla is nowhere to be found. In it's place.... panini, sandwiches, salads, soups... most under $8. There's even a "make your own sandwich" area of the menu, though this makes me lose a little faith in the concept, for some reason.
This is less of a re-tooling and more of a hack-and-slash, full-on concept change to apparently compete with other affordable, high quality Fairfax options like Golden State.
I for one will always welcome affordable deliciousness into my neighborhood. Fingers crossed...
