Christophe’s of Upland opens…with a little help

Christophe’s Restaurant and Lounge opened November 19 in downtown Upland, in the former D’Uplanders space.

Chef Christophe Jardillier, previously of Rancho Cucamonga’s French/Italian restaurant Le Bellisimo, aims to bring “fine dining with emphasis on French cuisine” with this venture.

The restaurant has a wine and spirits lounge, private dining room, outdoor caf and marketplace.

It’s open for lunch and dinner, and reservations are now being accepted for dinner and holiday celebrations.

It’s also the first restaurant to open with help from the city’s new loan program, which is intended to encourage restaurateurs to open new sit-down, full-service restaurants in certain parts of the city.

The loan program (and Christophe’s opening) is detailed in an article by Sandra Emerson in today’s Daily Bulletin.

Christophe’s is located at 296 N. 2nd Ave. (at C Street). It is closed Mondays.
