THRIVE Bentonville is a 44,000 square foot mixed-use experience with 62 residences and two culinary activators. ERC, the project developer announced Thursday (June 5) that Crepes Paulette, known for their gourmet crepes, will join THRIVE.

The development in downtown Bentonville is designed to create urban living opportunities which is being made possible in part by the large scale multifamily project — THRIVE — located in the city’s Arts district.

They will serve lunch with an expanded French-inspired menu and are also looking to expand their hours to serve breakfast and evening meals in the future. Along with their location at THRIVE Bentonville, they will continue to operate from their food truck located at Northeast A Street, with a smaller menu. Fred and Paula Henry opened the food truck in 2010 bringing French crepes to downtown.

The THRIVE Bentonville experience seeks to immerse dwellers in an urban environment with access to specialized concierge services and special events, as well as being located within walking distance to parks, dining, shops, and entertainment.
ERC said another new culinary concept is in the works by some of the region’s top culinary stars and those details will be shared in the next few weeks. The concept, which is yet to be named, seeks to connect another unique culinary experience to downtown.

The goals of the team are delivering both an oasis for THRIVE clients and a premiere entertainment, meeting and social experience for the city of Bentonville, ERC noted in the release.
