Bruno Denis and Olivier Souvestre opened the Le Garage in Sausalito together in April 2008 and L’Appart Resto located in San Anselmo in 2010. Born in Brittany, France, Olivier who has over 20 years of restaurant experience moved to San Francisco in 2005 and worked as Executive Chef at Chez Papa Bistrot where he met Bruno. A native of Versailles, France, General Manager Bruno has been working in the restaurant industry for over 10 years in the San Francisco Bay Area. Susannah Souvestre, Olivier’s wife, is a partner in their new venture and is the business manager for the company.
They have put together a new concept that will be coming to Marin County soon. It will be an upscale French burger bar with a full service restaurant and lounge area. The ambiance will be casual, warm and fun while the food will be casual American “fast food” classics with a French twist. The prices will be inexpensive with no item over $15 and they will be open 7 days for lunch and dinner and brunch on the weekends.
Restaurant Realty has had a long working relationship with Olivier, Susannah and Bruno. We wish them continued success in all their endeavors.
