The vacated Dogwood on The Avenue in Hampden will soon be Le Garage Beer Bar & Frites with chef Sarah Acconcia in the kitchen. Wine Market Bistro owner Chris Spann is involved, too, as a consultant.

The restaurant, which will offer "approachable French cuisine," is set to open in early April. The menu will include savory frites with a variety of dipping sauces—including Old Bay ketchup, bacon horseradish, and rosemary garlic—as well as entrees in the $16-21 price range and other dishes.

Most recently, Sarah was a sous chef at Maggie's Farm in Lauraville. Previously, she created an assortment of impressive small plates at 13.5% Wine Bar, up the street from the new restaurant.

Le Garage, in the lower level of the space, will have an 18-seat bar with high-top tables, along with a 60-seat dining area. The upper room, fronting 36th Street, will house a small Belgian-style frites shop.

The restaurant's menu will also include 14 hand-selected drafts focusing on Belgian, French, and local craft breweries, as well as wine offerings. The beverage program will be handled by Brendan Kirlin, a partner on the project who will also run the front of the house. He's a former beer buyer at the Wine Market.

The restaurant will be located at 911 W. 36th Street.

Hampden is certainly becoming a restaurant hub!
