Maison et Objet 2017 is the international authority for home decor, interior design, architecture and lifestyle culture and trends through its shows, events and its digital platform. It is the leading home decor fair connecting the international interior design and lifestyle community. During the fair, there is one place that you can’t miss to visit!
Restaurant Le Flandrin was born in a former railway station – a Beaux-Arts structure dating from 1854 – and it has been operated by the Malafosse family since 1932, when it first opened its doors. A couple of years ago, this brasserie located in the 16th arrondissement in Paris, went through a makeover that has upgraded its interiors and transformed the dining room into a sleek place and memorable.
With Art Deco interiors by architect Joseph Dirand, who also revamped Monsieur Blue, the brasserie looks incredibly modern and stylish. Dirand is a respected French architect and interior designer known for projects like Monsieur Bleu and the Chloé flagship store, as well as other luxury fashion brands as Balmain and Givenchy. Although he maintained his signature aesthetic, Joseph Dirand blended it with a pinch of decadence, giving it a nostalgic yet contemporary update.
With a gorgeous color palette, geometric patterned floors and rich materials like the beautiful mustard yellow velvet chairs, warm brass, smoky mirrors and dark woods, Le Flandrin is now a more sophisticated and chic restaurant where the new chef Olivier Denis will serve you the classic French cuisine.
The brasserie’s culinary offering has been revamped along with the decor, with a new seasonal menu developed by veteran head chef Olivier Denis. Vietnamese spring rolls, lobster rolls and macaroni and cheese update the starter selection alongside French staples such as frog’s legs, steak tartar and sauteed veal liver. The winter brings Marennes-Oléron oysters and, more unusually, sea urchins to the range of shellfish.
