French food has a lofty reputation, but that doesn’t mean a new Brooklyn Heights bistro can’t be down to earth.

Chez Moi is offering up a casual twist on French cuisine that its owner hopes will transform the Atlantic Avenue eatery into a gathering place for rich and poor foodies alike.

“Bistros were created for everyone — artists and noblemen,” said owner Patricia Ageheim. “You’re supposed to raise a glass and see where the night takes you.”

Chez Moi, or “My Place,” will feature seasonal dishes such as bone marrow escargot, duck salad with goat cheese, and charred smoked octopus, among other dishes ranging from $8 to $20.

The eatery aspires to serve the everyman, but it boasts a high-end pedigree — Ageheim has a background at the hip and innovative Japanese restaurant Nobu London, while her partner trained with renowned three-Michelin-star-achieving chef Daniel Boulud.

The bistro will feature live acoustic guitar, jazz music, and a “cocktail mixologist” — all in hopes of filling a niche that Brooklyn Heights is lacking, according to Ageheim.

“Brooklyn Heights needs more good affordable restaurants,” she said. “We want to do something different.”

Chez Moi (135 Atlantic Ave. at Henry Street in Brooklyn Heights, no phone number yet.)

Good food but fraudulent credit card charges. Beware of your bill

We went on a party of 4 and the food was good, the service could have been better. We tipped what we felt was right, but apparently the server didn't agree and actually debited on the card whatever he pleased despite the stated amount. 2 emails to rectify the issue but couldn't be bothered to reply. Terrible experience and make sure to check your credit card statement as not replying to rectify the issue only proves it is deliberate.
