No need to book your return trip to treat yourself to a sunny getaway, the La Gare restaurant is in itself a trip in itself. If its old railway facade retains the imprints of its past, its interior by Laura Gonzalez - named designer of the year 2019 by Maison & Objet - makes us quickly forget it. 

One hundred and fifty years after having first metamorphosed into a bistro, the old little station at Passy-La-Muette, fully restored, still retains its two levels. The fully enlarged upper space hosts a green patio surrounded by open kitchens - home of the Peruvian chef Gaston Acurio - letting out spice scents from around the world, just like the inspirations of its decoration. 
At its center, arranged in a pool covered with green Moroccan zelliges, invite a burgundy leather bench and a set of wooden seats dressed with shimmering fabrics. Overlooked by a long glass and steel roof and delicate Japanese linen hangers, this space with Mediterranean influences, Americo-Latin and Asian, closes on two cabins of bamboo looking like birdcages. 
In the shade of lush vegetation, an adjoining terrace stretches under the trees of Ranelagh's garden. The wood-fired clay tiles of the zelij workshop invite you to the floor, on which you will find a series of outdoor benches and chairs adorned with interlacing of colorful threads that can be found in the tea room on the ground floor. -of the road. The latter, also with an outdoor area and a bar, is just as exotic. The designer's motifs, designed for Pierre Frey, are displayed on the walls, alternating painting and wallpaper alongside a piece of wall invested by artist Claire Quénetain. 
A new gourmet address that wakes up the 16e arrondissement of the capital!
