Changes Coming at The French Press Eatery

The French Press Eatery was sort of the little brother of the Frog & Turtle
restaurant when it opened on Main Street last fall. The French Press’ role has
been to serve coffee, breakfast and lunch to the daytime crowd. The Frog &
Turtle, a gastro pub around the corner on Bridge Street, serves dinner in the
evenings. But now The French Press, run by Andre Tranchemontagne, the younger
brother of the Frog & Turtle’s chef, James Tranchemontagne, has developed
its own full-grown identity. The French Press will continue to serve breakfast
and lunch, but next week, starting Tuesday, July 13, it also will be open in the
evenings serving dinner. And coffee will no longer be the strongest tipple at
The French Press--the eatery recently won approval from the city for a liquor
license and has installed a full bar.

Congratulations Andre and James! It's been really nice seeing this project blossom. It's become one of my absolute favorite neighborhood stops. You can't beat the food or the service.

The food is great, not that I would expect anything else. I've been there many times since they opened and can't wait to try out the dinner menu!
