Franck LeClerc (Café Claude, Gitane, Claudine, 5 Claude Lane gallery) has a few new projects for 2013. First, he is planning to take over Joseph Manzare’s ~HECHO~ (escrow should close in 60-90 days), and Scoop reports he will be opening a classic French brasserie. A bar will be placed both upstairs and downstairs. Look for more news in coming months, and a potential opening in April. 185 Sutter St. at Kearny.

LeClerc also has plans for a second Café Claude opening in mid-2013 in the Marina. 2120 Greenwich St. at Fillmore.

Lastly, he will be closing the 5 Claude Lane gallery space and using it as an 1,100-square-foot extension of Café Claude, according to Eater. The space will include a lounge area, a bar, and there will be room for a jazz quartet to play until midnight, five nights a week (Claude currently can only hold a jazz trio). Look for an opening in May or June.
