Frédéric Duca, who learnt his craft alongside Gérald Passedat and Hélène Darroze, has set himself up in the city of lights – a place particularly close to his heart – to show you the full extent of his skill with seasonal, ever-changing dishes that are bursting with flavour.
He’s set the tone with the name of his restaurant! The rooster, or “Coq”, is a French emblem. By using the English name, Duca has perfectly highlighted his two main sources of inspiration.
In a modern, welcoming space designed by Maison Renards, the large blue leather seats, marble counter and soft lighting are reminiscent of New York, whilst also managing to feel like a chic Parisian bistro. The extra mile has clearly gone into the kitchen, which diners can sit and admire through its glass wall.
The menu is both simple and creative, showcasing market produce and featuring 3 starters, 3 mains, and 3 desserts, as well as a sharing casserole. Just like Duca himself, dishes here are hearty and indulgent, like the veal tartare with razor clams and smoked ricotta, and the hazelnut and rosemary scallops with Jerusalem artichokes. It’s a sophisticated place which is fast on its way to becoming one of the neighbourhood’s top spots!
