Chef Antonin Girard, head of Animal Records & Kitchen, has just opened a new restaurant in Paris. Named Pantobaguette, this 'festaurant' mixes bistronomic food and music with brio!

The independent label Animal Records returns in 2021 with a new project that, like its predecessors, mixes food and music! In 2016, Animal Records & Kitchen opened Animal Kitchen at Point Ephémère. On the menu, street and comfort food and amazing French-Asian tapas signed by label owner Antonin Girard, a chef who graduated from the Ecole Ferrandi. A few years later, it was at EP7, the 13th arrondissement guinguette, that Antonin Girard put down his suitcases and knives.

This spring 2021, chef Antonin Girard opens his"festaurant" Pantobaguette, just off Jules Joffrin. Head to the 18th arrondissement to discover what the chef has in store for us!


The cuisine here is bistronomic and seasonal. Let's take a look at some of the dishes currently on the (short) menu? By way of tapas, incredible takoyaki (9€) - those famous octopus dumplings - here ultra-melted, covered with a mirin bbq sauce, spring onions and Katsuobushi, the unavoidable dried bonito that dances to the rhythm of the wind for the pleasure of our eyes. Also available are black pudding croquettes (8€), delicious dipped in a curry and coriander fromage blanc!


We continue with the leek vinaigrette (6€), melting to perfection and topped with a virgin sauce, ricotta, hazelnut and sourdough chips; before moving on to the main courses: on the one hand, a sando sandwich of delicately fried cod (12€), tartar sauce and dried beets, made with airy homemade bread; on the other, a large bowl generously served with pork curry (12€), spiced up just right and placed on a bed of Camargue rice and spring vegetables.

And to finish on a slightly sweet but very gourmet note, we opt for a dessert featuring rhubarb (still sweet, it's the beginning of the season!), yuzu, acacia flower pickles and a beautiful madeleine baked to perfection and therefore served warm, a delight (7€).


Note that this new musical and culinary counter offers Parisian gourmands and gourmets a small menu of sandwiches to take away at lunchtime, and a menu of tapas to share in the evening - including the tapas offered on site at lunchtime! And you can wash it all down with a selection of natural wines or signature cocktails, while listening to some great music, of course!
