Starting with the site of the venue, Le Derrière Paris is located in the 3rd district. Its name (derrière=behind) originates from its exact location, which right at the back of 404 restaurant and Andy Wahloo cocktail bar in la rue des Gravilliers. As you walk on, hidden at a rather exclusive spot of the street, Le Derrière appears as surprise offer amongst the options of Le Marrais.
Le Derrière is equipped with several ‘little touches’ that make the visitor feel the comfort and warmth of eating in a traditional Parisian home, or one amongst friends. You choose if you’d like to sit in the living room with the live ping-pong table, the bedroom with the mosaic mirrored ceiling where you’ll sit on the edge of the mattress, the screening room den or a host of other apartment-like chambers.
What should not forget to mention is Derriere’s famous ‘secret room’. This refers to a delicately discrete fumoir (smoking room), which is a hushed whispered by many. With its entrance door looking like an old baroque wardrobe no one expects that opening it will lead you to a private room where smoking is ‘off-the record’ allowed – very cool.
The food is French, simple and wholesome, made with the finest quality products. Chef Lionel Delage brings real French culinary nous to his menu of modern cuisine that features lots of salads and dishes like slow-simmer beef cheek bourguignon. Great wines and excellent service complete the culinary experience.
