Le Colonial, the much-admired French- Vietnamese dining chain, is bringing its unique brand of old-world sultriness and spice to Delray Beach, specifically, to the new $300-million Atlantic Crossing mixed-use destination that is slated to become a focal point on Atlantic Avenue for living, working, shopping and socializing. The 7,000-square-foot palm frond-lined restaurant and lounge gracefully blends its lushly appointed indoor and outdoor spaces, evoking visions of a trench coat-clad Catherine Deneuve in Indochine, slowly strutting down a dimly lit street in 1920s Saigon. Delray Beach’s Le Colonial will mark the restaurant’s fifth venue in the country. Other locations include Chicago and Atlanta.
“Our goal with the Delray Beach location is to create something very special for South Floridians—an ambience that evokes a very distinctive vibe, which we feel will resonate beautifully in this relaxed but buzzy beachfront, town square setting. We are very excited to be part and partner of this community and hope to be part of memories to come for friends, neighbors and visitors alike,” says co-owner Rick Wahlstedt.
