I like number 6 the best - it is the most french and most fun, but if it is going to be more of a sophisticated atmosphere then maybe #4.

My husband and I are huge francophiles and just got back from vacation in France a couple of weeks ago - looking forward to trying your new restaurant!

I like #6 best, #4 second best. I like the upright utensils, but my eye sees them as a Y or V and makes me think about recycling (RecYcler) or revving. The ones with the dinner plates make me think of diners. #6 isn't about eating, it's about ambiance.

Looking forward to yet another reason to come downtown!

I chose #6 before seeing the other comments. It looks the least like it was designed on a computer, although I'm sure it was. Really looking forward to the new restaurant.

I like #6 because it looks like a street sign in a playful way, full of the spirit and elan that I get when in Paris! Since the restaurant is named after a street....and not just ANY street, the letters dance as my heart does, when I feast my eyes on the glorious fare this market spreads before you. You need not know any French to speak the language of food! CANNOT WAIT for you to open!Jane Walden jwalden5@nc.rr.com

I love number 6, especially given the name of the restaurant. I am looking forward to this place opening since I Pop's is one of my favorite restaurants in town, and I love French food.

I love #6, but I think some will find it hard to read, and I wonder if you'll get tired of it. I'm still voting for it, but I would really like #6 with a #4ish font.

Hands down NO. 6. It stands out over all of the rest. Can't wait!

So, here's the deal -- I like all of the more modern looking ones (1-5), but with all the type the same size, it looks a bit like "ruecler." #6 is easier to read, but I'm not wild about the faux french feel. Given all that, right now I'd go with #6 because it's easiest to read as two separate words.

Looking forward to its opening!

To be honest - none of the six logotypes is really good. #2 looks way too much like "The Federal" and #6 is a really poor imitation of a french bistro sign without offering anything in its way of imitation. PLEASE come up with something better !!! We are so ready for you to open the restaurant. Why don't you make something of the name - I imagine you have chosen it, because you really like the idea of a local neighborhood market street as wonderful destination for great food (shopping).

If I have to choose - #4, because of the font.

#6 for sure--the most French-looking of the lot

#4 catches the logo well, but I find #6 is most eye catching and fun!

when i looked at at them enlarged, i kept seeing the word "recycler" on 1-5 (although any word looks funny if you stare at it long enough). i think circles in logos are overused and the utensils remind me of a bouquet of wheat. i like the idea of 6 most, but seems too intricate when i imagine it printed on clothing or something small. i also like the font and rectangular streetsignesque of 4. i vote 4.

#6 most definitely speaks French to me, and I love the way the letters are placed and their different sizes.

My number one choice is #6, followed by #1 and #5. I keep driving by looking for a surprise opening!

#6 hands down. The others remind me too much of a diner, not a bistro...

Personally, I like #6 (Becasue it has a sense of humor) - my wife prefers #4 (she likes the font.
We BOTH agree that a French Bistro downtown is a REALLY GOOD IDEA and we can't wait for y'all to open!
So, hurry up and OPEN!
Good luck.

I vote for #6, and I made my decision before seeing any of the other opinions. It's more relaxed, somehow. The other ones, while nice, seem to me that they would be associated with an establishment more along the lines of a diner--all chrome and streamlined, with shiny red leather-covered stools at the counter. We love Pop's and can't wait to try Rue Cler! Good luck!

I would choose number 1 but with the font of number 4. I like that the silverware part of the logo is enclosed by the plate in this one. Or I would choose number 6. Looking forward to your opening!

I prefer #6 for its uniqueness, mix of uppercase and lowercase letters, and for being so French fancy!

I would vote for #7. None of the utensil designs work and #6 still isn't there yet. We are very excited about the restaurant but you need one more round on logo design.

Hello,
As someone who has stayed on Rue Cler on my vist to Paris in 2000, I vote for number 6. It is more traditional appearing and more French to me.

I really like #2 though I agree with others that it has a diner feel. The colors are great, and the feel is clean. #6 is best, I think--has a great fun french feel, less "clean", more antiquey and funky. I like it! #4 feels like some middle ground, still french, not diner, but a little more streamlined (I think white tableclothes and glossy black chairs). Good luck deciding!

I like #11. It is decorative without interfering with readability, and I like that "restaurant & bakery cafe" stands out more than on the others. That logo seems really accessible to me; I wouldn't be intimidated to eat at a place with #11 on the sign. #9 is also nice, but it communicates more of an upscale feel than you might be looking for.

The street sign fits well with the name of the new resto. And its easy to read the writing underneath. My second choice is one with red and gold writing. Am excited to hear about this new addition, as Pop's is my favorite Durham Restaurant! Can't wait to try your new place. Sarah (set2@duke.edu)
