Each summer season has its share of novelties. This year, Moma Group has created a buzz with the opening of Créatures. This new and temporary restaurant is said to open for four months, starting this mid-June 2019.
Perched on the Galeries Lafayettes Paris-Haussmann rooftop, this new restaurant will give pride of place to 100% vegetarian dishes by chef Julien Sebbag.
This young chef agreed to face up a new challenge while his very own restaurant Chez Oim, set on Bus Palladium upper floor, has been crowded on Tuesday nights for months.
For Créatures, he came up with a menu made of vegetarian and vegan dishes especially salads, such as the "Salade très fraîche" with colorabi, fennel, pear, avocado, parsley and ricotta, as well as peaches with the "Fire & Ice" dish made of peaches, feta, radishes and scallions.
Also discover the "Beyrouth-Tel Aviv" plate with mint, parsley, dill, cilantro, bulgur and raisins, or the surprising "Créature la plus photographiée de l'Histoire de l'humanité" with brioche, avocado and grapefruit.
To enjoy colorful tomatoes with basil and parmesan, go for the "Palette de peintures".
Also discover the "Summertime Sadness" with focaccia, zucchini flowers, Greek black olives and burrata.
And let’s put it straight, Julien Sebbag aims at making fruits and vegetable “sexy, tasty, innovative, delicious, surprising and fascinating”.
To do so, the chef bets on quality organic, local and seasonal vegetables and fruits. Several cooked ingredients in the plates or cocktails actually come straight from the urban kitchen gardens set - in partnership with Sous les Fraises - from the surroundings and just above the restaurant.
For cocktail lovers, Créatures also has a cocktail bar relying on herbs and plants. On the menu? No fewer than seven cocktails including the "Calypso" (Skynos, aquafaba, Kalamata olives, lemon, absinthe pernod, soda three cent grapefruit), the "Suzette" (Suze, blackcurrant syrup, tarragon, tonic) and the spicy "Globetrotteur" (Tequila olmeca, Mezcal del maguey, Campari, dill-infused sake). Also find softs, beers, hot drinks for breakfast.
As for the decor, we love the magnificent green terrace, perfect to enjoy some sunny summer days featuring - as a gift - unobstructed views on Paris roofs.
Let's congratulate architect office Uchronia to create this wonderful place mixing different recycled materials (reed, galvanized sheet steel, hessian) and bargain-hunted furniture from flea markets and second-hand stores in Paris and its surroundings.
We love the three oasis (one with plants, one with fruits and an aromatic openwork panel) thought up and created so that Julien and his team can draw inspiration in this kitchen garden on the Parisian rooftop.
Last but not least, Uchronia also created for Créatures a plant arrangement with lights and set behind the pergola and Julien's stand.
So, ready to go high with Créatures?
