Friends and family of Bernard Tordjman will soon have a second chance to celebrate the food, memory and passions of the late chef. The septuagenarian passed away in January, leaving behind his California-French influenced Henderson restaurant, Bernard's Bistro.
Shuttered almost immediately following his death, posts to the company's Facebook page indicated a move was afoot to revive the space. That promise has been kept with an announcement the bistro will re-open as CB's Legacy.
Following a "a face lift," CB's Legacy will debut on Friday March 11, at 4 p.m. No further details of the chef or owners have been revealed, but previous posts have been careful to suggest fan favorites from the Tordjman menu will be served.
Bernard's Bistro debuted at Lake Las Vegas in 2008 and Tordjman surrounded himself with two of his passions, the music of Frank Sinatra and the history of the RMS Titanic. Tordjman's grandfather had worked for the company that supplied the food and wine for the White Star Line fleet that included the ill-fated passenger liner.
The Lake Las Vegas location shuttered in 2015, allowing the chef to focus on his year old, three-times larger location on Henderson's Sunset Road, where he added more Italian dishes to the menu.
