Former Carafe Bistro chef/owner Pascal Sauton has a new project on the horizon — and it's not a restaurant. Tipsters tell Eater that Sauton is opening a retail space called Milwaukie Kitchen & Wines (presumably in the Milwaukie neighborhood), featuring a selection of locally made products and prepared foods. The space may also serve as a site for Sauton to teach cooking classes.
In April, Sauton abruptly left downtown's Carafe Bistro, which he opened in 2004, sending an email to friends and media that "it's time for me to seek new adventures and I am looking forward to it." More on the project as it becomes available.
