Several new Clearwater area restaurants opening; another reopening

CLEARWATER — A number of restaurants are poised to open in the Clearwater area in the next few weeks.

L'Auberge des Artistes has scheduled an early October opening in downtown Clearwater. According to chef/owner Christopher Poix, who has worked at fabled restaurants such as Paul Bocuse in Lyon and Alain Ducasse in Monaco, the restaurant at the site of the former La Cachette will offer a fine-dining menu of a la carte French dishes, as well as a five-course degustation menu.

Having spent nine years cooking in France, Poix was looking to purchase a restaurant in the United States and "fell in love" with the four intimate dining rooms that make up the restaurant space at 635 Cleveland St.

In a departure from the BYOB, no-liquor-license approach of La Cachette, L'Auberge des Artistes will serve beer and wine. For more information, visit aubergedesartistes.com or call (727)596-5439.

The long time-coming Original Boardwalk Grill and Sports Bar held a soft opening Saturday at 126 Island Way on Clearwater's Island Estates. At the former site of Tommy Duff's Irish Aviation Pub, this new casual eatery is said to have floors made from the actual decking from the Coney Island Boardwalk, with 20 HD televisions and a kids' arcade room. For more information, visit OriginalBoardwalk.com or call (727) 445-1111.

The location that was most recently Belleair Grill & Wine Bar, and the beloved Peppermill before that, will soon be Three Oaks Cafe. Located at 1575 Fort Harrison Ave. in Clearwater, the new restaurant's exact opening date is not known at this time.

Meanwhile, E&E Stakeout Grill in Belleair Bluffs, which has been closed for more than a month for a major renovation, is ready to reopen. Sister restaurant to Guppy's and Mystic Fish, E&E opened in 1985 as Eugen's Restaurant. It remodeled in 1995 with a more casual southwest sensibility and was rechristened E&E. It is located at 100 N Indian Rocks Road, Belleair Bluffs.
