Anne-Sophie Pic, Yannick Alléno, Olivier Bellin, Thierry Marx and Pierre Hermé ... All these great chefs and pastry chefs with 17 Michelin stars between them have settled in the Beaupassage, a vast urban project initiated by Emerige in the 7th arrondissement of Paris, which opened on 25 August.
Suffice to say that gastronomy takes centre stage in this elegant new space dedicated to pedestrians and taste, much like the Grand Hotel-Dieu in Lyon or the Promenade Sainte-Catherine in Bordeaux.
Other taste artisans in the line-up include, Nicole Barthélémy, barista Junichi Yamaguchi and butcher Alexandre Polmard.
Discover each project in more detail:
In the heart of the complex chef Yannick Alléno and his wife Laurence have a three-level establishment complete with restaurant, wine cellar and art gallery. The cellar boasts over 700 wine labels, both French and foreign, to take away or enjoy on the premises with a communal eating space carved out to "surprise, excite and socialize." L' Allénothèque has a 50 cover dining room with open kitchen views, with another 60 covers on the terrace and 10 at the chef's table.
