Light, bright, and vintage. This is Froufrou Paris, a restaurant and bar that reflects the old Parisian style. Right inside Théâtre Edouard VII, this place is about sharing, joy, and variety. Like the theater, emotions filled this unique restaurant.
Every decor and interior design detail of this location takes you back in time. You are in the city of feathers, shiny martini glasses, and red velvet and leather. From the restaurant, to the bar, and the terrace. At Froufrou, you are experiencing the old Parisian style.
The bar is hidden below the restaurant, almost like a 1930s American speakeasy. Mirrors cover the walls and stools that face the shelves filled with shiny bottles. There are quiet corners with comfortable chairs, low tables, and candles at the center.
After all, the famous French designer Alexis Mabille decorated this restaurant and bar. The restaurant is an extension of the foyer, intimate and chic.
The cuisine at Froufrou Paris
Chef Juan Arbelaez created a delicious and innovative menu for this bar and restaurant. The signature dishes are a must-try. They include the confit shoulder of lamb, the roasted whole monkfish, and the truffled shells (with or without ham) from the chef’s childhood.
Most of the menu’s items can be shared, like the starter prawn tempura or the duck with balsamic reduction and red fruits. If you don’t feel like sharing (no judgement here), you can pick one of the delicious pasta dishes, like the pesto tagliatelle with pinions and tomatoes. Or the linguine in squid ink with hulls and marinade emulsion.
From Monday to Friday, you can pick the fixed lunch menu, which includes a starter, main course, and dessert. Pair it up with an amazing glass of wine from the restaurant, like the sweet rosé or the red, 2014 Santenay “Vieilles Vignes” Vincent Bachelet.
