We Say:  We loved the Melody Inn in this location for many years. We are now making the transition to the change. Our associates  are crazy about this place. More soon.

VeroNews.com Says: Bistro Fourchette, a casual restaurant offering French bistro classics, has made its debut in the old downtown in the space long occupied by the Melody Inn.

Chef Stephane Becht, a native of Alsace and until this past spring executive chef at Windsor, realized his dream of opening his own place in part by turning to internet crowd funding (a recent innovation for restaurants) to raise more than $5,000 to date from online donors for renovations.

With wife Loretta greeting customers and overseeing the dining room, this new casual French restaurant seemed to be running smoothly only a week after its opening.

Headline news: Perhaps because Becht grew up in Alsace only a short hop from the Swiss border, the culinary approach – at least for the moment – doesn’t seem much changed from when this restaurant was the Melody Inn. That’s good news for those who loved the French-Swiss dishes of Hans and Margaret Burri.

Look & Feel: Totally redecorated, Bistro Fourchette now has a far more open, casual look than the old Melody Inn. While it seems a bit austere for a French bistro, the use of mirrors as wall decorations enhances the feeling of space. Two-thirds full on the night we visited, the noise of diners drowned out the effort to add ambience with French cabaret music.
