The Café Germain, projected by India Mahdavi, 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. Each of the restaurant’s rooms are different from each other in their moods yet very consistent. Principal elements of its decoration include check board patterns, leopard prints, bit leather sofas, stool bishops and various crystal details.
The ground floor functions as the main salon of the venue, and is where the restaurant and bar can be found. Vibrant colors, mainly reds and yellows, accompanied with blacks and whites recreate a retro dining room of the 70’s. On the other hand, the salon on the first floor, designed for private parties and gatherings is thought to be a decorative achievement.
But 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.
