Patachou at the Stutz, the newest addition to Martha Hoover’s renowned Cafe Patachou chain, opened its doors at 1060 N. Capitol St. on Thursday, November 16.

Operating hours are set from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. on weekdays, extending to 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. on weekends, offering patrons ample time to relish its brunch offerings.

The space, accommodating around 75 diners in the main dining area, boasts a distinctive feature—a private dining and meeting area with a wet bar, the first of its kind for Cafe Patachou establishments.

“I’m a big people-watcher. I like hotel lobbies that invite you in and make you feel really welcome, where you want to sink in and have a glass of wine and listen to the music,” Hoover said. “We hope that people will want to sink into the cozy custom furniture and think of the restaurant as an extension of their homes.”
