Avec is finally set to re-open tomorrow after nearly two-and-a-half months of being closed due to a grease-chute fire. The restaurant will re-open with minor cosmetic changes, according to a release that went out earlier, but diners will notice the most difference in the food.

In addition to adding a mighty Vulcan six-burner oven, the avec kitchen will also include a high-heat plancha for grilling. Executive chef Koren Grieveson has retooled the menu to include items like olive oil-poached fish in a mason jar, housemade blood sausage and whole-roasted foie gras.

Pastry chef Patrick Fahy will drizzle dessert with some Italian inspiration and include new options like crepes with housemade "nutella," various flavors of chocolate bark and exotic snacks like pine nut-rosemary cookies.

The doors will re-open at 3:30 Friday afternoon and we expect the most eager of foodies may brave the falling temps and camp outside tonight. Man, that would be awesome if someone actually did that. Who's up for it? Anyone?
