A second Schmuck has opened up in St Germain in Paris (summer 2011) after a great success with the first one at 43 rue de Ponthieu (next to Champs-Elysée), on the other side of the river Seine.
When I first entered the restaurant I was amazed by the decoration made by Laura Gonzalez (who re-decorated Bus Palladium and the nightclub Le Régine). She is an interior designer, she manage her own architect company, Pravda Arkitect and at the age of 27 I must say her career is very impressing :-)
The walls in the restaurant are covered with different wallpapers, mirrors in different shapes and sizes are hanging on the walls next to old framed photos, antique chandeliers hanging from the ceiling, candles almost everywhere, baroque armchairs and my favourite part, the wall made by marble with a console covered with candles in different sizes. The decoration breathes very much Marie-Antoinette which is charming and puts spirit to the ambiance.
The mojito is a classic one in the bar and if you are lucky you might spot the hot actor Guillaume Canet at Schmuck or Gilles Lellouche who is one of the owners.
In my next blogpost I will introduce you to their food, stay tuned ;-)
