It’s open! Théâtre Edouard VII has welcomed a brand-new restaurant. Its name? Froufrou. Designed by Moma Group and replacing the historic Café Guitry, this place remains first and foremost the Café of the Théâtre Edouard VII.
True place of life, artists and audience members can come all day long. Untouched by time, Froufrou is inspired by the lightness and the frivolity of the Old Paris and displays a sumptuous décor created by the talented French designer, Alexis Mabille.
Alexis Mabille says: “Froufrou is a place of pleasure and culture, Théâtre Edouard VII restaurant-bar is itself set in the Parisian area that welcomed everybody who is anybody in Paris in the 19th century. Froufrou also is two places of life; an elegant and friendly restaurant – a nod to the theater and its tradition of sharing between the audience and the artists – and inside, in the basement, a bar that will intoxicate you late in the night and in a cosmopolite décor mixing the eras and styles”.
Moving on to the stoves, they have been entrusted to one of the greatest chefs of his generation: chef Juan Arbelaez, now running several restaurants including the now famous Yaya, as well as Plantxa, Levain, Vida and Maya.
For Froufrou, he cooks a convivial, tasty and hearty cuisine. He also came up with a “sharing” French style. For as much conviviality as possible, big dishes to share are put in the middle of the table and replace individual plates.
On the menu? Marrow bone, meager ceviche or razor shell clams with herb butter as a starter, followed by truffled elbow pastas inspired by the chef’s childhood, as well as confit lamb’s shoulder or even whole roasted monkfish. Sweet-toothed foodies won’t resist the impressive Mille-feuille to share, or the chocolate cream enhanced by Kalios olive oil or the Colombian rum and lemon rum baba.
Do you want more? Dash to the basement starting 11:30 p.m. to enjoy Froufrou Cancan Bar thought up like a “speakeasy”. The particularity? From Wednesday to Sunday, after the show or dinner, this cocktail bar switches to “cabaret” mode and provides burlesque shows to travel back in time.
In other words, run and discover Froufrou as soon as possible!
