The Place | Frenchie

Today I want to tell you about Frenchie, most of you have probably already heard of it, since it's becoming more famous as time goes by and as "bistronomy" is becoming more and more popular.

Frenchie is one of my favourite restaurants, and I dream of working as an intern there (I actually will send my resume but with very low expectations of being accepted, once Chef Gregory Marchand works practically alone)

The name of the restaurant, as explains its chef and owner, comes from when being called "Frenchie" at Jamie Oliver's 15, where he worked before returning to the city of lights, after working in both western continents (Gramerci Tavern in New York, Fifteen in London).

This restaurant is located in the belle city of Paris, since it opened it is busier and busier and reservations are hard to get (but possible!)

The chef has as motto the very known "less is more" and in his case, that's the true. His philosophy is fresh food straight from the source, fresh ingredients in to-die-for combinations in a 29-seat restaurant where the menu changes weekly.

I'm quite certain you're now drooling over your keyboard.. but please do! Here's some sites where you can see more (but please go get a napkin...)

  1. Olá Joana, descobri o teu blog recentemente e gostei muito. Partilho do mesmo interesse pelo Frenchie, o Gregory publicou um livro com algumas das receitas do restaurante, não sei se conheces, eu gosto muito! Acho que agora já tem mais pessoas a trabalhar com ele.


adorava saber o que achou!
