If you want to get an early look at Petit Louis Bistro in Columbia, owners Tony Foreman and Cindy Wolf are introducing their newest restaurant with a series of dining events to benefit various charities, starting next week.

The French bistro, located on Lake Kittamaqundi, will open to the public in early February. It will feature traditional dishes like Louis’s “famous onion soup” (pictured), duck-leg confit, mussels provençale, cassoulet, and steak frites among other offerings.

To celebrate their sixth restaurant, Tony and Cindy—who also own Charleston, the original Petit Louis in Roland Park, and other places—will donate proceeds from several lunches and dinners to four Howard County charities: Bridges to Housing Stability, Columbia Festival of the Arts, Domestic Violence Center of Howard County, and The Howard County Conservancy.

Diners can choose which charity they’d like to receive the funds.

The charity luncheon dates ($30 a person) are January 29 and 31; dinners ($50 a person) are January 28, 29, 30, and 31.

The meals include an appetizer, main course, and dessert. Each guest will receive a complimentary glass of red or white wine.

To make reservations, call 410-964-9999. Petit Louis in Columbia is located at 10215 Wincopin Circle.
