With Bistro Bordeaux and Crêperie Saint Germain both rolling along like a downhill stage of the Tour de France, Pascal Berthoumieux announced he’s bringing a third bar to his tricolor in downtown Evanston. Patisserie Coralie (600 Davis St., Evanston, 847-905-0491), a traditional boutique pastry shop, will move into the former Cafe Mozart space after renovations.

Serving pâtisserie classics such as macarons, éclairs, tarts, Napoleons, and madeleines to remind you of a Parisian pastry shop, Patisserie Coralie will showcase the work of the pastry chef Manuel Bouillet, a veteran of the well-regarded Parisian pastry shops Fauchon and Un Dimanche à Paris. Coffee will come from Julius Meinl.

Sofas and settees will sit next to coffee tables made of rolling pins in what Berthoumieux calls a “sexy and comfortable” atmosphere. He will also display his collection of antique pastry objects.

The pâtisserie is named for Berthoumieux’s almost-two-year-old daughter. That sounds like a children’s book waiting to happen.
