Café Germain by India Mahdavi
The Café Germain, offers an alternative to the traditional Parisian brasserie. A mix of different elements and influences, both in terms of its atmosphere and cuisine, is spread into two floors whereas each of them server a different function. The most unique aspect of the restaurant is the massive yellow sculpture, created by Xavier Veilhan, that spreads across the two floors of the restaurant.
Perpendicular to the Boulevard St Germain, located at 25/27 of the charming rue de Buci, there is now an additional dining option for the selective Parisians, and not only, under the name Germain. Opened by Thierry Costes, a connoisseur of resto-business activities and run successfully since May 2009 alongside other restaurants and cafes owned by the Costes brothers, the Café Germain offers an alternative to the traditional Parisian brasserie.
Previously being the well-known restaurant of the 80’s L’Arbuci, the café Germain offers today to its customers a mix of different elements and influences both in terms of its atmosphere and cuisine. The restaurant is spread into two floors whereas each of them serves a different function.
The ground floor functions as the main ‘salon’ of the venue, and is where the restaurant and bar of the venue can be found. At a first glance the interior of the ground floor becomes reminiscent of the past conveying to you a 70’s mood. Vibrant colors, mainly reds and yellows often accompanied by contrary blacks, vector patterns on the furniture and carpets and a full surface black-white check board-patterned floor makes you feel as if you are in a retro dining room of the 1970’s era...

Je ne m'en lasse pas... C'est fun, original, singulier et unique, dans le style seventies revisité. L'étonnante sculpture centrale de Xavier Veihlan, "Sophie", donne tout le caractère à ce restaurant atypique.
On aime...On dit oui...Il faut nous en faire d'autres, Monsieur Xavier!!!
