Scheduled private parties will still go on, but the eatery is closed to the public.
After serving California-French cuisine for just over two years, the owners of Pardon My French Bar & Kitchen have announced their doors are closed permanently.
The news came via a heartfelt Facebook post on Monday, the owners saying they loved the community they served and felt that it was reciprocated.
Pardon My French, located at 3797 Park Boulevard, opened in early March 2016, taking over the space from Heat Bar and Kitchen.
Owners Eric and Lindsey Fillion kept the atmosphere intimate with art, warm lighting, music and a large outdoor patio.
They say they will fulfill their scheduled private events but are no longer open to the public.
Their Facebook announcement drew many comments from followers who were saddened by the news.
Here is that announcement in full:
It is with saddened and heavy hearts that we are closing the doors permanently to Pardon My French Bar & Kitchen.
Our time in Hillcrest has been beautiful and inspiring. We fell in love with this community. You took us in and treated as family, and you will always hold that place in our hearts. The memories and moments are etched.
This is a place of celebration. We celebrated many days together in this space. Even in the moments of loss, we still celebrated life and what we are blessed enough to share with each other.
From graduation, births, deaths, renewals, engagements, promotions…the laughter and tears mortared something permanent, something permanent, something beautiful. For that we will always be grateful.
While we wish this story ended differently we will cherish the time we did, have. To the next chapter.
We will remain open to honor the booked private parties but unfortunately cannot remain open for daily service.
