Beaupassage is the name of the new food and wellness temple opening later this August 2018. Initiated by Emerige real estate group, this spot is set in the passage that links rue de Grenelle to rue du Bac and boulevard Raspail. Instead of creating a 60-flat private residence, Emerige has decided to turn the 10,000-sqm inner courtyard into a shopping arcade with green areas and beautiful living places!
Beaupassage is described as a place fit for wandering around, an open-air passage inviting walkers and curious to live a sweet break far from the city’s hustle and bustle. Art works and installations, tree and plant-filled areas, wellness and love of good food are the ingredients of this new place we can’t wait to discover.
This new place of walk gives pride of place to love of food and wellness. If you’re a demanding gourmet visitor looking for something good and beautiful, you’ll be happy.
Within Beaupassage, Yannic Alléno and his wife Laurence offer a chic, unique, friendly, open, transversal and demanding place brilliantly gathering and on three levels, a restaurant, a wine cellar and an art gallery. Covering 550 sqm, the restaurant features 50 places with a view to the kitchen and 60 seats on the terrace + 10 for the chef’s table. The basement gathers some 700 French and international references. The idea is to select one or several bottles to take away or to be enjoyed on the spot in the restaurant. Every month, masterclasses will enable some passionate people to discover oenology.
