Bearnaise has lost its beloved bulldog. Charlotte, which has been a fixture at Spike Mendelsohn's Capitol Hill restaurant since it opened over the summer, was stolen November 8, according to a rep. The bulldog had been purchased by Micheline Mendelsohn during a trip to Paris when scouting artwork for the restaurant.
"We want her back," said the restaurant in a statement. "She served as a mascot for the restaurant and the most low-maintence pet ever. No grooming required." The restaurant is offering a reward: the thief will not be banned from Bearnaise if the statue is returned.
