Some of you already know Baieta, Julia Sedefdjian's first restaurant. Now discover BÔ, the new gourmet address from France's youngest Michelin-starred chef.
Alongside her acolytes Grégroy Anelka and Sébastien Jean-Joseph, Julia has imagined a Caribbean-inspired dining bar. Open only in the evenings, this place puts rum and Creole cuisine in the spotlight, all in a place with a refined decor. Seated on high stools, around wooden tables, you'll discover some fifty rum references above the bar.
As far as rums are concerned, BÔ offers some fine references, with rums from Martinique and Guadeloupe, as well as Mauritius, Venezuela, Barbados, Guatemala and Cuba.
The menu also includes a number of clever beverages, such as the classics of the genre (Mojito, Old Fashioned), as well as four creations, including the highly acclaimed and succulent"Bobo", made with rum, honey, vegetarian chili powder and lime, served over ice.
That evening, we're also tempted by the gourmet"Saveur Coco" made with white rum, coconut, sugar and lemon.
To accompany these cocktails, BÔ offers several typical sweet and savoury small plates.
A la carte? Papaya & mango souskay (fresh salad),chicken, herring or cod chiktay (seasoned shredded fish), fish tartar with coconut milk or the classic lentil/sausage...
We opt for a typically West Indian dish based on manioc flour: Féroce d'avocat and its pieces of cod, sublimated here by a slightly spicy note. Our taste buds are conquered and the voyage is on!
Next, we discover another specialty: Boudins du Cochon Créole, which offer an explosion of flavors from the very first bite.
Bô doesn't forget gourmets, offering sweet dishes such as Pana cotta coconut and mango, banana cake, walnuts and chocolate sauce, and an excellent crème brûlée... with cinnamon! A crunchy, melt-in-the-mouth dessert that dazzles the taste buds.
Are you salivating? Head to the 5th arrondissement of Paris to push open the doors of BÔ and experience an incredible journey to the Caribbean, expertly handled by a warm and smiling team!
