Back in December, when restaurateurs Steve and Michelle Corry (Five Fifty-Five and Petite Jacqueline) announced a new French-influenced establishment, they didn't disclose a name or a chef for the project. Yesterday, the co-owners publicized a name for the Old Port eatery: Portland Patisserie and Grand Cafe. They also revealed a whimsical peacock logo.

The proprietors emphasized the " focus will be on the traditional Patisserie theme — with beautiful displays of whimsical pastries, pies, cakes, desserts, breakfast pastries, etc" and a "full lunch and lighter dinner fare." The restaurant's pastry chef will be Catherine Côté-Eliot, who — in addition to having trained with international pastry gurus Eric Bedoucha and Jacques Torres — happens to be the wife of Petite Jacqueline's chef Frederic Eliot.

The restaurant is expected to open in May at 46 Market St. in Portland.
