The creative minds behind BO-beau kitchen + bar will open doors to 100 Wines Hillcrest in mid-August on University Ave. The apothecarian-inspired space from the Cohn Restaurant Group and Parisian designer Philippe Beltran boasts reclaimed and repurposed accents picked up from Beltran's travels to create an old-world design evocative of a cozy European bistro. Local culinary force, Executive Chef Katherine Humphus, takes the reigns in the kitchen with a menu of European portion-size shared plates. The dishes are packed with her signature modern flavor combinations and are inspired by her own travels to Spain, France, Italy and Greece.

Enlisted to head up the project is none other than Executive Chef Katherine Humphus and designer Philippe Beltran, the powerhouse players behind the successful bohemian Ocean Beach bungalow, BO-beau kitchen + bar. “We love Hillcrest," says Lesley Cohn. "We adore the neighborhood and hope to fill a current void found on University with a community destination that celebrates good wine and delicious food in a warm and intimate setting. Philippe and Katherine both bring so much to the table and together, their collaborative spirit creates the perfect juxtaposition of European plates and old-world design."
