French brasserie and bar 39 Rue de Jean, based in Charleston, S.C., has begun construction for its new downtown Savannah location.
The recently opened Embassy Suites Savannah at 605 W. Oglethorpe Ave. will soon be home to Rue Savannah. Opening date is set for early fall.
This eatery has been abuzz since opening its doors in 2001. Inspired by the style of classic French brasseries, Rue’s flavor and European design lends an air of sophisticated comfort. The menu incorporates classic French staples with contemporary fare, including mussels in a choice of six preparations, steak au poivre or Rue’s famous burger, ground in-house and served alongside hand-cut pommes frites.
“39 Rue de Jean has become a favorite meeting spot of both locals and visitors in our flagship Charleston location and we are honored to join the Savannah community to offer a dining destination for both leisurely lunches and lively dinners,” says Holy City Hospitality operator Daren Wolfe. “Savannah is rich with vibrant life and history, and we are excited to be coming to town early this fall.”
Holy City Hospitality’s other ventures include Charleston’s 39 Rue de Jean, Virginia’s on King, Coast Bar and Grill, Vincent Chicco’s, Victor Social Club, Michael’s on the Alley, The Islander and Good Food Catering.
