Thibault Vidalenc, who owns several hotels in Paris, admits he felt ‘in love’ with the location which was a former jewellery workshop, and refurbished it with the help of the architect Lazaro Rosa-Violan to create a 160-cover restaurant.
The interior design is unique: iron beams and stairs, a 550sq m room and a wonderful glass roof. Little tip: the passageways, on two floors, are the perfect place to enjoy the waiters’ ballet.
In the kitchen, a team of enthusiast young people creates new dishes throughout the year and according to seasons.The chef, Alban Drevet, learnt from the best such as Philippe Legendre at Four Seasons Hotel Georges V and Alain Pegouret at Laurent. His challenge: to change the menu every week with 3 starters, 3 main courses and 3 desserts.
A Parisian address to discover in the morning attracted by the smell of brioche bread, at noon for a business lunch, or at night for a dinner betwenn friends or a romantic evening.
