Fleurie is the only restaurant on this side street.
Zoé Edgecomb and Dirk Walliser take a break from working in the hot sun.
Fleurie, the compact and upscale restaurant on the Downtown Mall's Third Street NE, will finally get its own café, as these images from May 3 indicate. The restaurant, owned by chef Brian Helleberg, won permission last December
from the powerful Board of Architectural Review to install a wooden deck just outside its front door. Designed by Zoé Edgecomb, a former Fleurie waitress-turned-architect, the 22-person deck will include tall benches and an unusual iron-and-wood wall to define the space. Facing the Paramount Theater, Fleurie has become a popular spot for theater-goers, and the semi-secluded nature of this pedestrian side street has been the site of some outdoor parties.
