Louis Germaine at Le Sans Souci
Culinary Francophiles rejoiced at the Invitation Only Grand Re-Opening of Le Sans Souci last Thursday. There wasn’t an empty table throughout the charming home-styled restaurant as friends and fans of proprietor Louis Germain, renowned for his fine presentation of fresh fish and vegetables – delivered and prepared fresh the same day – came to toast his health and the re-opening of his famous Cave Creek eatery at 7030 E. Bella Vista Drive, 480-488-2856.
