Chez Fonfon is that cozy, casual French bistro that transfers you to Paris, Lyons or Nice. Opened in 2000 by Chris Mancill, Frank Stitt and Pardis Stitt, it is a bustling bistro serving classic, hearty French fare: fresh seafood, moules et frites, sautéed trout with brown butter, escargots, and homemade charcuterie.
Chez Fonfon offers the most delicious wines, chosen for their value and typicity, from the Loire, Rhône and Languedoc.
Patrick Dunne (of Lucullus fame) is responsible for the decor, including authentic elements such as the French Belle Epoque café tables and 100 year old etched glass door from Lyons. Chez Fonfon marble wainscoting and mahogany paneling for the bar were rescued from a glorious old Birmingham office building.
Open for lunch Tuesday through Friday and serving continuously through dinner until close. Also open for dinner on Saturday evenings. Stop by Chez Fonfon for a quick snack, sumptuous meal or a glass of wine. Play a game of boule in Chez Fonfon's courtyard. And we’ll help you keep score.
Chez Fonfon is owned by Frank Stitt and his wife, Pardis. Stitt also serves as executive chef at Chez Fonfon. Other Stitt Restaurants include Bottega Dining Room, Botttega Cafe, and Highlands Bar and Grill.
