Le Grand Pigalle
29 Rue Victor Massé, 75009 Paris, France
A Taste of the Mediterranean in ParisTo match the creative cocktails shaken and stirred at this bed and beverage in south Pigalle, the Experimental Group, the nightlife crew that opened the hotel, knew they’d need a solid food menu to go with them. They wisely brought on chef Giovanni Passerini of the beloved-but-shuttered restaurant Rino to design the new menu for Wine & Dine, which runs to contemporary Mediterranean dishes like smoked Buratta, fried pizza and cod confite, with products sourced from small, Italian producers. The vino contingent should find their bonheur with varietals from Nero d’Avola de Graci to the slopes of Mount Etna.
