And a third "neighborhood restaurant"! With their beautiful house, Franck Baranger and Édouard Bobin take a fishmonger cape. From 80% of the Atlantic, the (on) taken from the chef reserve each day: to follow ...

A nice little place to enjoy dishes with iodized flavors. Sitting in the heart of Paris, yet it is near the sea that guests have the impression to escape at lunch or dinner. A successful bet for the owners of this gourmet restaurant nestled in the district of Pigalle.

In Paris, the Belle Maison brings beautiful fish waves in the district of Pigalle. Under the eye of Emilie Bonaventure, the original anchorage has taken on the appearance of a seaside, with the conviviality of a fisherman's house. A counter that holds the bar; a zenith light upstairs: from the 60 seats, you always feel safe.

"Intrepid", so calls his sweatshirt of the day in elegant marine letters. Beautiful appetizer at the success story Franck Baranger who, with his partner Édouard Bobin, has just anchored a third gastronomic beacon in the 9th district of Paris. "In a spirit of a small seaside house, this one puts on the menu fish, crustaceans, seaweed ...", announces this chef with serious references in the apron. If the Constant House gave him the taste of South-West cuisine, it is in Bristol, with "Chef Frechon" as the profession calls it, that the Parisian discovered sardines, mackerels, whiting ... and a whole line of species capable of landing stars, as surely as the usual bars or monks.

Without nets, the walls of the Belle Maison are also fly, with a decoration against the current, entrusted to Emilie Bonaventure. A "girlfriend" met at their table, in good neighbor of this trendy SoPi: in South Pigalle, therefore, she also signed, in September, the renovation and extension of three new spaces Rose Bakery, including one on the sidewalk opposite. Here and there, the interior designer has the chic to restore the identity of the place, playing simple materials and custom fittings: "In this sobriety, everything has a function, each object is chosen." Until the march forward, which takes advantage of a freight elevator so that dirty and clean never cross, these biases are verified on two floors. On the background of a blue cave, acidulated piping reminiscent of lemon like UV-washed wax, the original tiles have been tattooed with geometric waves. In burned wood, tables and counters are adapted to silvery urbanities: finger rinses in the rules of the art, knives similarly picked or vegetable in the same fishmonger savoir-vivre. It remains to savor what the menu of the day has in its nets. "Taking line or small boat, no matter what, but who live fishermen."
