A reader provided us with a tip (and a pic) showing signs of progress at Petit Roti at 248 S 11th Street.
Set to open the doors in September, chef Olivier Desaintmartin, chef and Owner of ZINC and Caribou Cafe, hopes to bring a taste of France to Philly (again), but this time with a new spin. Desaintmartin will highlight France’s rôtisseries - a feat that seems more realistic when you hear that he has imported two authentic rotisserie machines from France. And along with the impressive machinery, Petit Roti will also have a pantry full of vinegars, oils, jams, olives, and more to emulate the French épiceries.
The simple, no-frill menu offers up sandwiches, sides, and a whole or half chicken but be on the look out for their daily specials, too. Drinks will include cappuccinos, tea, espresso, coffee and sodas. And for those of you who want to grab n' go, online ordering will become available soon.
