Ze Kitchen Galerie is a restaurant opened by William Ledeuil, a former trainee of chef Guy Savoy. Located in 6th arrondissement of Paris, this classy restaurant is hosted in an antique building. However though, Ledeuil refuses to have the same antique look for its restaurant interior. Instead, he goes with a colorful decoration and an open showcase kitchen to create a warm and cozy atmosphere for its guests. The men who are Andrew Todd, who is responsible for Ze Kitchen’s beautiful design, and Leopold Gest, who is responsible for the stylish furniture.
Moreover, Ze Kitchen Galerie is also not your ordinary restaurant because it also serves as an art gallery. There are numerous paintings displayed on the wall of the restaurant and they are all for sale. This is actually a clever move since the paintings can also serve as beautiful decorations for the restaurant itself before someone buy them. This little touch definitely will attract people who have passion in art to enjoy the atmosphere offered.
As other good restaurants do, Ze Kitchen also provides their menu online on their official website so you can decide whether the menu there will suit your taste or not. As any other good restaurants also, Ze Kitchen Galerie has a long waiting list so you better reserve seats in advance. The menu itself usually changes every five weeks, so do with the paintings. Therefore, if you really like what they serve in your first visit, then you may want to come back again in five weeks to see what they have got this time.
