We’re hearing there’s a soon-to-open modern French restaurant somewhere downtown.  Could it be an outpost for the well-regarded one in Santa Luz ?  Chefs are auditioning and one name that we’ve heard about is  Aaron Martinez  (who was at Addison, then flew to and quickly took flight from Flight).

UPDATE:  The new name for this place will be PAON which means peacock in French...and due to open sometime in August.  Word travels fast these days and Per Se Restaurant & Wine Bar Carlsbad could have a name problem on their hands.  As noted in a previous post, Thomas Keller got the name first with his well-known eatery Per Se in New York.  Apparently Mr. Keller has voiced displeasure with the Carlsbad wannabe.  We’ll see if there is a name change in the works.
