This restaurant-bar of Les Bains Paris welcomes its clientele around its magnificent cocktail bar with a very neat and somewhat exotic decoration. Roxo invites you to travel. Where? We don't really know, but one thing is sure, when you're in this establishment with indoor terraces (one of which is overlooked by the "Sphere" of Sambre), you don't feel like you're in Paris anymore.
Behind the counter? Chef Barman Eric Sablonière, who has worked at Night Flight, the Hôtel du Grand Pigalle and the Prescription Bar.
To support him, a fine and talented team of bartenders composed of Benjamin Cousseau, French cocktail champion in title, winner of the World Class France, Sébastien Serra, Pietro Costamagna, straight out of the Italian bar and restaurant Grazie, and finally Cyril Pouvich, second of the bar.
Needless to say, the happy bunch has come up with an incredible menu of timeless cocktails inspired by the place and divided into 4 chapters, in reference to the 4 eras of the history of the Bains.
To the list of timeless cocktails, Roxo adds vintage cocktails by bringing back to the forefront the art of barrel-aged cocktails.
And to accompany these drinks, Roxo has called upon the talent of Brazilian-born Chef Bruno Grossi.
After working at the Bistrot d'Arsène (8th arrondissement), he joined the two-starred Marcus in London, then the three-starred Guy Savoy in Paris.
His cooking style? Authentic, creative and full of influences. " My cuisine is cosmopolitan, my desire is to share it by adapting to the mood of the moment, without programming everything in advance," said the Chef.
Among the dishes that gourmets will be able to savor at Roxo are a truffle croque-monsieur, a plate of tapioca cromesquis filled with Comté cheese, grilled octopus, Iberian beef cecina and tomato coulis, and mackerel marinated with passion fruit and corn espuma.
Roxo offers a cuisine that is both gourmet and healthy, with a number of gluten-free and vegetarian dishes.
During our visit to Roxo, we were able to taste an excellent "Arborio" risotto with Périgord truffles, poultry juice and watercress; creamy (and tasty) burrata served with a beet cream and a mandarin sauce, an original combination that goes well; snacked broccolini with carrot hummus, hazelnut and Ponzu vinaigrette; salmon gravlax, sweet spices, dill cream; and avocado toast & white omelette, fleur de sel and Espelette pepper.
For dessert, we tasted a very good mango and passion fruit cheesecake.
You were looking for a new table, with a good cuisine, and good cocktails? Look no further and try Roxo.
