Behind this mysterious name hides the trio (Carina Soto Velasquez, Adam Tsou and Joshua Fontaine) famous for La Candelaria, the Mary Celeste, the Glass and the Hero.
For the Palais de Tokyo, they imagined a place both friendly and innovative featuring an impressive 13-m long bar counter. Set up like a Chefs Table, this bar counter offers a few exclusive seats on the other side to be as close to the bartender as possible, whereas tables can accommodate up to 170 covers in a more private atmosphere thanks to the alcoves.
This area, offering a new lifestyle destination, has been thought up by Parisian agency Lina Ghotmeh that wanted a place mixing earth, raw wood and metal weathered by time.
The view of the Eiffel Tower remains magical thanks to the semi-transparent glass window.
For the menu, you will find original creations based on fresh and local ingredients and products created by American chef Preston Miller, former executive chef at Seattle Bar Sajor and Boston Ruka. The chef also intends to limit the environmental impact as much as possible.
Here is a preview: for lunch, discover the Spiralini with clams, peas, whey butter, horseradish and mint (€21) or the Shawarma with braised chicken served with pita bread, tahini sauce and salad (€19).
At dinnertime, make way for the spinach bucatini and 24-month Comté cheese, pepper and broccoli (€19) or the Berkshire pork butt served with smoked eggplants, new potatoes and chicharron (€25).
Like in all Quixotic Projects places, the venue will also unveil a cocktail bar for lovers of these delightful concoctions. On the list? The “Gordon Gekko” with gin and vermouth dry or the “Tchicki Boum” made of mint and sorrel, caramel, Blanche de Normandie and calvados.
