Les Bains Paris restaurant-bar welcomes guests around its beautiful cocktail bar with a very sophisticated décor that is quite exotic. Roxo invites to travel. Where to? We don’t really know, but one thing is sure, when we’re in this place featuring indoor terraces (including one overlooked by Sambre’s ‘Sphere’), we don’t feel in Paris any longer.
Behind the counter? Barman chef Eric Sablonière who trained at the Night Flight, Hôtel du Grand Pigalle and Prescription Bar.
To help him out, a fine and talented team of bartenders including current French cocktail champion and World Class France champion Benjamin Cousseau, Sébastien Serra, Pietro Costamagna (coming straight from Italien restaurant and bar Grazie) and last but not least, assistant barman Cyril Pouvich.
No need to say that the merry band came up with an incredible and timeless cocktail list inspired by the place and evolving around 4 chapters, as a reference to the 4 stories of Les Bains story.
To the timeless cocktails, Roxo adds vintage cocktails bringing the art of barrel-aged cocktails up to date.
And to pair these beverages, Roxo called in Brazilian chef Bruno Grossi’s talent.
After training at Bistrot d’Arsène (Paris 8th arrondissement), he joined the London-based two-Michelin-star restaurant Marcus, then the three-star Guy Savoy restaurant in Paris.
His cooking style? Authentic, creative and with many influences. “My cooking is cosmopolite, my goal is to share it by adapting myself to good vibes, the mood of the moment, without planning everything in advance”, the chef said.
Among the dishes foodies can enjoy on Roxo menu, we have the truffle grilled cheese, a comté-stuffed tapioca fritter platter as well as grilled squid, Iberian beef Cecina and tomato coulis and even passion fruit marinated mackerel and corn espuma.
Roxo provides a both delicious and healthy cuisine including a certain number of gluten-free or vegetarian dishes.
When we came to Roxo, we tried the exquisite “Arborio” risotto with Périgord truffle, chicken jus and watercress; creamy (and delicious) burrata served with creamy beetroot and mandarin sauce – an original mix that works well –, seared broccolini served with carrot hummus, hazelnuts and Ponzu dressing, salmon gravlax with sweet spices, dill cream, and an avocado toast with white omelet, fleur de sel and Espelette pepper.
For dessert, we enjoyed the very tasty mango and passion fruit cheesecake.
