Petite Chou in Clay Terrace to become a Patachou

Oct 7th, 2014 | by Eat Drink Indy | Jolene’s Blog, News, Restaurants

Restaurateur Martha Hoover will gain a Cafe Patachou — and lose a Petite Chou — when the Clay Terrace Cafe Patachou location undergoes a transformation Oct. 14. The store will close to make the switch and will reopen as a Cafe Patachou on October 15th.

Duck fat frites are a popular menu item at Broad Ripple's Petite Chou.

According to Patachou brand manager Christina Pippen, the conversion of Petite Chou Clay Terrace to a Cafe Patachou is part of the company’s overall strategic growth plan.  All of the existing Clay Terrace staff have been offered positions with the company, she said, and most will be staying on at the Clay Terrace location.  Petite Chou Broad Ripple hours will remain the same: It’s open 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Sunday and Monday, 8 a.m. to 9 p.m. Tuesday through Thursday and 8 a.m. to 10 p.m. Friday and Saturday..

While reservations for dinner at Petite Chou Broad Ripple can still be made over the phone, Open Table will be available for that location. As part of the conversion plan, Cafe Patachou at Clay Terrace will be available in the evenings for private parties, weddings, rehearsal dinners and corporate events seven days a week. — Jolene Ketzenberger
