Abstinence: the new trendy dining cellar at the Fitzgerald

Abstinence restaurant paris

Eat, drink & love , this is the credo of the new, ultimately cool address at La Motte-Picquet opened by Guillaume Benard , already owner of the festive institution of the 7th Fitzgerald .

The same chic and stylish vibes are at the heart of this all-round meeting. Here, you can disembark to flirt with your loved one or have fun in a group around a cocktail and plates to share in a glam and sophisticated atmosphere with a socialite clientele at the rendezvous.

A highly instagrammable decor

Velvet curtains, candles, banquettes and tall seats in olive or tobacco leather, vibrant playlist, impressive Sarrancolin marble bar, extraordinary glass roof that fills the place with incredible light: the tone of this singularly cool address in the 15th district is set. !

At the helm of the kitchen, chef Lucas Felzine (formerly Ze Kitchen Galerie , L'Arpège , Uma ) assumes a menu of small dishes to share that borrows the trendy relaxation of Mediterranean sharing and the ultimately Parisian foodie and bistronomic touch.

The menu of Abstinence

On the tables, it gives a mix and match of small dishes too good to be able to taste everything: perfect egg , haddock and Jack be little squash with whiskey (€ 13), vegetarian Thai green curry (€ 14), grilled octopus , mashed potatoes potato and turnip Kabu (22 €), St. Jacques shells into lacquered miso (24 €).

A true best-seller, both comfort food and haute couture, you must order: hot dog with pulled beef, cantal and apple ketchup (€ 18), fregola cacio e pepe (€ 12) ...

The ultimate embellishment for those with a sweet tooth: kouign amann , soy caramel and golden late ice cream (€ 11) and addictive ice creams or sorbets : sesame, cocoa rosemary, orange blossom… to die for (€ 3).

To perfect the atmosphere, a barman shakes a sharp cocktail made with homemade syrups that make all the difference: The Enchanting with vodka and strawberry purée (€ 15), The Hypocrite with bourbon and lavender syrup (14 €), L'Oisif with mezcal and yuzu syrup (€ 13). Not to mention the sublime mocktails on demand that have nothing to envy to the alcoholic versions.

The perfect address for a party on the 31st

Looking for a cool table for the evening of the 31st? An insane formula has been designed to thrill foodie souls with a good sound: glass of champagne or cocktail, roasted scallops and chestnut cream, foie gras millefeuille, lobster ravioli, capon, citrus opera (€ 165 per anybody)…
