What's filling Deux Cheminees' space?

Exclusive: The gorgeous twin brownstone in Wash West will house a branch of a Greek restaurant from L.A.

What's filling Deux Cheminees' space?

Deux Cheminees, which for two decades was a bastion of genteel dining in the hundred-year-old twin brownstones at 1221-23 Locust St. in Wash West, closed in summer 2007 as chef-owner Fritz Blank retired to Thailand with his cat, BoBo.

Here's first word of the new occupant of the property, the former Princeton Club of Philadelphia:

A Greek restaurant called Ulysses Voyage, which has roots in L.A.

Work has begun, but the timetable for opening is not known.
