Beyond beloved local restaurant Cafe Chloe is venturing outside of the East Village; the European-inspired bistro, which first opened in 2004 on Ninth Avenue, is working on opening a new creperie in the neighborhood, but Eater has word that the popular eatery is heading to Point Loma, where owners Alison McGrath and John Clute live, to join the bustling food and drink scene at Liberty Station.
Chloe at Scout - Garden Cafe & Events will share space with Scout @ Quarters D, an existing home design and decor studio/store. The property includes a one and a half acre garden, on which Chloe and Scout creative director Paul Scott Silvera will create an outdoor cafe and terrace with seating for 20 that will serve a menu of pastries, quiche, cheese and charcuterie, soups and composed salads, plus sippers that range from specialty coffees and cocktails to aperitifs and wines.
The cafe portion of the concept will open this fall, but available immediately is the team's ability to activate Scout's historic building and lawn as an event venue for up to 500 guests; they'll work with top local caterers and event coordinators on everything from weddings to private parties.
McGrath says, "As residents of Point Loma, we’ve watched the project grow into a true neighborhood. We know that our charming little garden cafe will be the perfect quiet, calm counterpoint to the bustle of the village."
