French restaurant Partage to open in Chinatown Saturday

Partage will open to the public at 5 p.m. Saturday at 3839 Spring Mountain Road in Chinatown. The restaurant is the latest project from the team behind Eatt Gourmet Bistro: chef Yuri Szarzewski, pastry chef Vincent Pellerin and manager Nicolas Kalpokdjian, with the chefs hoping to show off their Michelin-starred experience in a more formal, upscale venue. Guests’ options will include five-, seven- or nine-course tasting menus, small shareable plates or large-format dishes such as a whole fish, duckling breast, 2-pound lobster or 20-ounce Secreto Iberico ham. Partage translates to “sharing” in French.
