The Erie Downtown Partnership held a new business ribbon cutting event for Cloud 9 Restaurant and Wine Bar on Wednesday, June 11th, 2014.

“We’re very pleased to announce yet another new independently owned restaurant is opening in downtown Erie” said John Buchna, CEO of the Erie Downtown Partnership, “Restaurateur Bertrand Artigues is opening Cloud 9 Restaurant and Wine Bar that will feature tapas-style food and an international wine list” added Buchna. Buchna went on to say, “Wine Bars and tapas-style restaurants, which offer a wide variety of small plated pairings, are very popular in many cities across the US. We’re excited to that Chef Bertrand has chosen downtown Erie for his new wine bar and restaurant”.

“This is a dream come true and was made possible because of the positive impact of the city of Erie, the Erie Downtown Partnership and others” said owner Bertrand Artigues. “We’ve considered another restaurant to complement our popular bistro for many years” added Artigues. “Wine bars are hugely popular so we wanted to open one here in downtown Erie after we’ve seen the recent investments by Erie Insurance, the Convention Center Authority and others” commented Artigues.

Chef Artigues concluded by saying, “We’ll feature many international wines pared with some nice dishes that will allow customers to enjoy more, especially if they are on a time basis for lunch or heading to a nearby event. This is a real good location for this type of wine bar and restaurant. We have ample parking, a new restaurant surrounded by new investments – we’re really excited about growing our business in downtown Erie”
