Prepare to bid adieu to Bijoux. After eight and a half years of serving some of the city's most refined food at Inwood Village, owners Scott and Gina Gottlich are closing the doors. Per a press release, they'll stay open for another month "to allow time for guests to make their final reservations and redeem any outstanding gift certificates," as well as to pack in one last Valentine's Day crowd.
A press release quotes chef-owner Scott Gottlich as saying, "We feel now is the right time to close, on a high note, so we can stay focused on our other restaurant, The Second Floor at the Westin Galleria, and take time [to] consider future projects."
The restaurant underwent a supposed revamp in 2012 that was intended to dial back the fine dining element and transform it into more of a "bistro." The previously prix-fixe only menu was replaced with a more reasonably priced a la carte menu, though a re-review by Leslie Brenner found that not much had changed in terms of the "buttoned-up" atmosphere. (She gave the restaurant four stars.)
Bijoux's last night in business will be February 28. The restaurant is open Tuesday through Saturday; to reserve one last dinner at Bijoux — or try it for the first time before it goes away forever — call (214) 350-6100.
