Friedmann & Versace : Bistrot Rougemont

The duo Friedmann & Versace amazes with the decoration of the Bistrot Rougemont composed on the theme of the garden, and for which the designer has worked on a shade of green. It is in the 9st arrondissement of Paris that it delivers this renovation of an old brewery Parigote transformed into a restaurant, taking the codes of the authentic French bistro but revisited in its own way.

Located at number 10 of the eponymous street, the Bistrot Rougement has the elegance and brilliance of emerald with its shimmering reflections. These variations, which orchestrate the decor with contemporary accents, are inspired by the verdigris of the roofs and statues of Parisian gardens. It was Virginie Friedman who was able to persuade Hugues Barretieri, the owner of the premises, to join his new restaurant in the family of "Neo-bistrots", whereas this one imagined instead to register his establishment in a traditional kind.


Result, Chef Anthony Poussel's cooking, "Inspired by the flavors of yesteryear", is served in a case that oscillates between different periods. On one side, the pastel walls with delicate moldings, combined with the bar counter, furniture and other supplies - among which sublime lamps in chiseled glass and opaline - give off a classic atmosphere typical of Maupassant's novels. On the other hand, a sculptural mirror made of 55 different facets - which helps to enlarge the space -, to which are added benches and a screen dressed in fabric with exotic patterns, put Bistrot Rougemont in tune with the times.

The floor is in white marble of Thassos and in green marble of the Pyrenees. Outside, woven rattan terrace chairs and bistro tables complete this mosaic that is believed to be carried out over several centuries, and where it is not surprising to see Bel-Ami cleaving with Vernon Subutex.
