Mirepoix to become Momma Pig
Thursday, April 14th, 2011
When BiteClub reported that Mirepoix was closing for “renovations”, there was a nagging doubt that they’d reopen anytime soon. Owner Matthew Bousquet, despite earning a Michelin star this year, had publicly expressed concerns over the haute restaurant’s bottom line. Added to the continuing doldrums surrounding the Town Green, it wasn’t surprising to hear this week that Mirepoix would be history.
The good news however: Bousquet and his wife plan to reopen the restaurant as a family-friendly barbecue spot this summer called Momma Pig. The success of the couple’s original French bistro concept will hopefully port over to the Bousquet’s other Windsor restaurant, Bistro M.
