After 6½ years at 312 Market St., chef Patrice Rames has closed Patou, the Old City sibling of his Bistro St. Tropez next to the Ben Franklin post office.

Bistro St. Tropez is still going strong after about 20 years on the fourth floor of the Marketplace Design Center at 2400 Market St.

Patou, which opened to great promise with an expansive look, open kitchen, and high French Riviera style, has been on the market for some time.
