If we had to name one successful revamp it would be the covered market of Puteaux with the Eugène Eugène restaurant and its bucolic atmosphere in the heart of the city. From the street, nothing can let you guess there’s a winter garden hiding under the large 300-sqm glass roof.
With its industrial architecture, Eugène Eugène takes us to a greenhouse untouched by time. Its large room is filled with big plants, giant fans, and wicker furniture, perfect on warm days. But the best is yet to come, the 200-sqm terrace has been fitted by Studio Ko indoor designers with very woodin, wicker furniture (sofas, armchairs...) covered in cushions.
The hidden terrace is filled with plants and trees - including orange trees, as well as aromatic plants (sage, rosemary, bay trees ) - and sheltered thanks to the sunshades. But if you love sunbathing, be resta assured, the terrace is also in the sun.
It is very pleasant and we feel great.
On the menu? Chef Jérémy Mathieu has concocted summer dishes very fresh. Starting with some delicious seabream ceviche served with mango, coconut, and fried onions for some crunch. As well as some flavorful beef carpaccio cured for three weeks seasonned with capers, parmesan, basil and candied tomatoes. Meat is strong, it is surprising but divine.
Moving on to main courses, steamed cod - already featured on the detox week menu after the Holidays - is perfectly cooked and super-fresh with some herbs and a mixture of sesame oil/soy sauce/lime for seasoning.
The chef also thought about vegetarians especially with riccota/Espelette pepper-flavored mascarpone ravioli with artichokes, sundried tomatoes, parmesan and meat jus. A dish likely to delight taste buds.
As for desserts, this year, Eugène Eugène bets on great classics and it works. Whether it is the strawberry-basil tartlet, the lemon-hazelnut choux bun or the chocolate entremets, all these desserts are mastered.
Dishes are delicious, an explosion of summer flavors.
As for summer 2020, the cocktail list is also renewed including a dozen new homemade creations.
We went for the Passionata and its travel-inducing flavors. It is based on white rum, crème de pêche, mango-raspberry shrub, lemon juice, passion fruit juice and Schweepes.
As for dishes, cocktails are wonderfully made at Eugène Eugène.
If the lunch seduced you, on Sundays, there is a big all-you-can-eat buffet set in the greenhouse and no need to say you better book 2 to 3 weeks before and the terrace is always crowded from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.
