Opened in April 2006, this high concept restaurant and bar, located in a small courtyard off the Champs-Élysées, is the first Parisian venture styled by ultra-hip interior designer Didier Gomez. The Mood is ‘Asiatique’: the upstairs restaurant has a fresh décor of green banquettes, silk cushions, wall-sized photo portraits of kimono-clad geishas and tables decorated with bonsai trees. Chef Jacky Ribault (formerly of Tsé fame) oversees an interesting menu of French and Oriental dishes, as well as a fusion of the two, such as the mouth-watering steamed dim sum. Downstairs in the deeply sexy red bar, a hip 20- and 30-something crowd recline on low, bed-style seating hidden in intimate booths, where surprisingly good sushi is served as the perfect accompaniment to the inventive selection of cocktails made with fresh fruits, flowers and spices. The vodka-based Bouquet des Sens, literally pot-pouri in a glass, and the sake laced with honey and lychee juice, both come highly recommended.
