This newly opened bar and restaurant comes from James Henry, Oz-expat and former chef of Le Passage. The sparsely decorated space features overhanging industrial light fixtures and the raw framework of bricks, wood and tiles, hence its name. The 25-seat space serves a four-course prix fixe dinner, while drinks, oysters and small plates are reserved for the marble-topped bar.

Paris-based record & fashion label Kitsuné has opened a new café on the Palais Royal, around the corner from their flagship store.
