Le Fooding’s Best Décor of 2017

This mega-restaurant from Julien Ross and Alexandre Giesbert (Roco, Perruche) is so damn handsome! With its six-meter-high mirrored ceilings, striking concrete columns, beautiful big terrazzo tiles and cascading plants, the first Daroco has definitively won over the Parisian in-crowd. The day we went for lunch, the plates got the job done right, just as faithfully as ever: silky veal tartare with a Parmesan cream and capers; al dente pappardelle with octopus ragù come a casa; before a generous chocolate mousse made with fine chocolate from the Chocolaterie de l’Opera. Otherwise, opt for one of the nine pizzas rolled out as if they were pin-ups, like the Napoli (tomato sauce, anchovies from Cetara, cherry tomatoes, taggiasche olives, garlic, oregano, basil), or the Parmigiana (fior di latte, fried eggplant, tomato sauce, pesto, shaved Parmesan), etc. // C.C.

FEELING THIRSTY? There’s La Lucienne lager from the Brasserie Toussaint (€5 for 250 ml), spirited cocktails (Arrête Tinder et Bois Ton Spritz made with Aperol, ricotta distillate, strawberries, lime, juniper milk and prosecco, €14) and wines from the Boot: a Bernardino chianti (€10 a glass), a white Sicilian Vitesse (€30 a bottle)…

PRICE: Pizzas €12-19, à la carte €31-60.
