I stumbled across Derrière Restaurant, quirky restaurant on Instagram. Someone posted the interior of this restaurant looks like you’re in a chic apartment with boho-hipster vibes. In 2008, Mourad Mazouz which also the guy behind the famous Sketch London opened Derrière Restaurant in 3rd arrondissement of Paris. See also my experience in Sketch London. So about the concept, they want you to feel like you’re at Parisian home or being invited in friend’s house. Sit anywhere you’d like- either in dining room, lounge, living room, bedroom, workspace, or discover their unique secret rooms upstairs.
Derrière means ‘behind’ in french which is referring to the location of this restaurant; find it at the back of the family restaurant 404 and Andy Wahloo bar. This dictionary definition style is how they write down the menu- very creative!
If you’re looking for the restaurant- that black door has a little sign on its entrance door- probably easily to be missed. The food is typical French gourmet and they are good too!
Once you enter the restaurant, becoming more interesting as you pass from one room to another room. The furniture and something about these organised chaos clearly make you feel like at home. Some piles of books on the top of fridge, coats and helmet hanging by the entrance next to the motorbike- those little homey details. Next is the lounge area with sofas and a pingpong table in the middle. Also don’t forget to check out the bathroom- for those adorable antique mirrors and bathtub for the washing sink. Stay tuned for more hidden rooms in this restaurant!
