Brach terrace restaurant
Once a postal sorting centre, Brach has been reinvented thanks to the creativity of a man who needs no introduction: Philippe Starck. The ambiance is warm and welcoming, with a 1930s décor that plays with the contrast between natural and raw materials, including metal, wood, concrete and leather.
Located in the heart of the 16th arrondissement of Paris, close to the Musée de l’Homme, a large glass structure reveals dense vegetation at the entrance to the hotel. In this bright space, you’re free to go straight to the terrace restaurant on the first floor. More than a luxury hotel and restaurant, Brach is a forward-thinking philosophy of life, where neighbourhood activities and high-end tourism blend together to offer you new experiences. A place to visit with friends and family, or for a business meeting.
You’ll marvel all the way to the top floor, where the hotel’s rooftop offers a breathtaking view of the Eiffel Tower, along with a few other surprises, including a well-stocked vegetable garden and laying hens!
A cuisine with sun-drenched flavours
In the restaurant, you’ll enjoy the best dishes in Starck’s typical lounge decor, with leather sofas and grey wood armchairs. Chef Adam Bentalha offers you Mediterranean and fusion cuisine, with healthy and balanced dishes. The menu includes arancini with Iranian saffron, hummus, red tuna and black olive tapenade, couscous-style quinoa tagine, vitello tonnato and ravioli with onion and truffle compote, œuf parfait and beef stock…
After working in prestigious establishments such as La Bauhinia de l’Hôtel Sangri-La, Adam Bentalha has created a menu for the restaurant that reflects his craft, his identity and his origins. The menu draws on products from sun-drenched regions with exotic spices and smells, selected from inspired and inspiring producers.
To end the meal on a high note, try the unforgettable pastries made by Yann Brys, 2011’s Meilleur Ouvrier de France. Known for his iconic Tourbillon cakes, he concocts sweet, delicious and daring creations that will leave you shaking in anticipation. His pastries are as healthy as they are quirky, original, colourful and carefully crafted.
In keeping with the warm and comfortable ambiance of the hotel, the first-floor terrace is filled with exotic furniture, comfortable armchairs and benches, warm lights and raw materials, including natural oak, metal, leather and marble, which help create this very special atmosphere. In this relaxed and luxurious setting, Adam Bentalha offers a snack menu that lies somewhere between Asia and Oceania, with sushi, sashimi and pho soups, iced mochis, and more.
The venue is also home to Yann Brys’ pastry shop, and a cocktail bar that is always inspired by the flavours of the Mediterranean basin, with barmen who work with fresh products and syrups that are prepared in-house.
A real Parisian “patchwork” that’s worth a detour!
