Paris / Restaurants and bistros

A Schmuck – At Rive Gauche (part 1)

SchmuckA 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 ;-)

    […] They’ve changed the menu at Schmuck in Paris ;-) My favourite main course has been excluded = no more skate wing  for me….instead I found something else that tempted me on the menu…Saint Jacques! So I had Saint Jacques with mashed potatoes (delicious!) and for dessert I had the usual, brioche façon pain perdu with caramel sauce and vanilla ice cream :-) Happy they didn’t take that one off from the menu ;-) As I’ve been telling you before, their brioche façon pain perdu is the best I’ve ever tasted in Paris and if you’re feeling for having one have it at Schmuck!
