Serving Food French Families Relish

Chloe by Vincent is a new casual French restaurant in Downtown Minneapolis created by Chef Vincent Francoual, Restore Restaurant Holdings and restaurateur Erik Forsberg.

Located at 700 S. 3rd Street, inside the historic Canopy by Hilton Minneapolis Mill District hotel, the restaurant is named after Chef Vincent and Brenda Francoual’s young daughter, Chloe, who shares a love of cooking with her father. Chloe’s “signature” created our logo and one of her drawings, created while sitting at a hightop waiting for her father to finish in the kitchen, greets guests as they arrive.

Chef Vincent was the namesake and creative force behind Vincent, A Restaurant, which was frequently named the “the best French restaurant” in the Minneapolis-St. Paul area during its 14-year run.

Chloe is the first new restaurant from Restore Restaurant Holdings – a recently formed group pioneering a new way of running a restaurant company by collaborating with successful restaurateurs to rebuild the hospitality business in downtown Minneapolis and surrounding areas. RRH is headed by co-founders, attorney Dennis Monroe and his son, Matthew Monroe, along with Francoual and Erik Forsberg, the owner of Devil’s Advocate and Dan Kelly’s Bar, along with other businesses.
