Larcher plans Garden Grill Cafe for 1,675 square feet on the first floor of Occidental Plaza at 300 N. Main St. There also will be an outdoor patio.
“It will be all vegan,” Larcher says of his menu.
Larcher grew up in Martinique, where he attended culinary school at age 16. Eventually he attended another culinary school in Nice, France, before coming to the United States 20 years ago.
Initially, the Garden Grill will be open for lunch from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. daily except Saturdays, when it will be closed.
There also will be brunch on Sunday and dinner by reservation only on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday.
He also plans a smoothie and juice bar.
Entrees will rotate each week, but Larcher says each day of the week will offer a different theme, such as Creole, Italian or French cuisine, among others.
This leaves only one 2,400-square-foot vacancy within Occidental Plaza.
