Owner Lilia Ladjelate from Marseilles, France opened her new restaurant Le Relais de Paris on October 3rd at 734 State Street, the long-time home of Ruby’s Cafe & Spirits Lounge. The eatery is the newest location in a string of Le Relais de Paris franchises around the world. General Manager Skye McGinnes tells me that they offer a simple menu of steak and fries (with some fish and salad selections). The bistro uses a secret recipe of 18 spices on their beef to give a distinctive flavor not available elsewhere. Hours are Tuesday – Saturday 5 p.m. to close. For more information call 963-6077.
