Bar Breton is going to become that restaurant. (We'll see if this is true.)

The cat's out of the bag, per FloFab:

LA QUENELLE Cyril Renaud, the chef who owns Bar Breton, a creperie and then some, has tired of his crepe-driven menu, so he renamed the place and added more classic French fare, especially on the dinner menu. The house specialty is now quenelles de brochet, seafood dumplings in lobster sauce, based on the recipe once used at La Caravelle in New York. Escargots, foie gras and rack of lamb are also served: 254 Fifth Avenue (28th Street), (212) 213-4999.

Cool. Another "famous chef bistro" for us to argue about. :P

But will he keep his gluten free fare?

“One thing kids like is to be tricked. For instance, I was going to take my little nephew to Disneyland, but instead I drove him to an old burned-out warehouse. 'Oh, no!', I said, 'Disneyland burned down.' He cried and cried, but I think that deep down he thought it was a pretty good joke. I started to drive over to the real Disneyland, but it was getting pretty late.”
