Le Tigrr: The Asian Feline in Paris
After St. Tropez and two venues in Paris, restaurant Le Tigrr opened a new spot in the French capital with signature Asian fusion food, cocktails and luscious interiors designed by Philippe di Méo.
Certain bars and restaurants are more conducive to meetings and rare moments that become precious memories over time. A colour, atmosphere, scent, dessert, and laugh, ingredients merge into a chemistry that cannot be contained in any recipe. So we evoke the magic of the place, as if, rather than a recipe, a magical formula, that fans find affinities for.
Le Tigrr has set up a new venue in the Carrefour d’Odeon square in Paris. Altogether, the three prestigious addresses of Le Tigrr restaurants are dense of fascinating felines from Southeast Asia. Everything is covered in black and gold from linen napkins to cushions that invite you to sit comfortably in the restaurant to bar.
At Le Tigrr, you can sip your favourite cocktail or enjoy Thai- and Vietnamese-inspired delicacies. During the day and throughout the night, time moves to the rhythm of the wild music, carefully selected depending on the mood. Music, fine food, cocktails, the decor, the thousand and one little touches have come from a few good spirits.
The hosts themselves are the soul of this place. Should you see Philippe Di Méo, who designed the decor down to the smallest detail, putting his stamp everywhere, even on the pretty chopsticks stamped with the restaurant’s logo; should you see Jérôme Foucaud, the master of this project; restaurateur Arnaud Duhem or DJ Dan Adrien – you may perhaps come to understand why everything is perfect for magical moments at Tigrr. •
