And we've got a look at the food and the menus.

Shuttered since midsummer, the lights are finally back on in the lofty space on South 15th street that once housed The Treemont. This time it’s got nothing to do with Chip Roman, though…

Fine Palate, the catering company behind the food and beverages at Le Bok Fin, has taken over operation of the space, and they’re running it as a fine dining restaurant. After their summer on a roof deck, owner Courtney Dow and chef Vince Joseph  are still settling into their new digs, but they’ve kindly shared with us their opening menu and some food shots as well.
