For several years now, the Pigalle area has been changing, always welcoming new cocktail bars and nice and delicious tables.
The latest is called Can Alegria. Behind this name with a melodious accent, we have two friends. On one side, Marc-Antoine Colonna. Coming from Corsica, former student at the Ferrandi school, he multiplied experiences especially with chef Nicolas within Alain Ducasse’s restaurants or La Oliva in Ibiza. On the other side, we have Matthieu Lecomte. After a carrier in web, he throws himself into the food industry and the purchase of his first restaurant, Le Petit Village set in Paris 17th arrondissement.
Today, both friends are becoming associates with the opening of Can Alegria.
Displaying a very beautiful and bright decorum designed by architect and designer Elodie Ricord, the restaurant shows warm and blue hues and harmoniously combines bamboo and wicker to velvet and brass.
As for the menu, Can Alegria gives pride of place to Mediterranean and exotic cuisine with dishes inspired by Spain, Lebanon and even Israel.
As a starter, let’s have for instance some cauliflower roasted with spices, Mozzarella di Buffala with mashed beetroots, Provoleta and even trout ceviche with coconut milk.
Moving on to main courses, we have a 6-hour grilled squid at 83°C, cooked in olive oil and kefir lime leaves, served around sweet potato, cilantro and rosemary. Or you can order the rock fish bouillabaisse, or the black pork shoulder candied with honey and thyme.
And to accompany these dishes, the restaurant offers about fifty wine references. For mixed beverage lovers, Can Alegria came up with five creation cocktails such as the one made of gin, cucumber and elderflower liquor.
So, are you ready to discover Can Alegria mouthwatering cuisine?
