the Place: Daroco ~ an Italian Tarttoria nestled amongst the serene Galerie Vivienne. We stumbled upon this little treasure while roaming around the bustling Business District, also known as the 2nd Arrondissement, of Paris.
with Who: Ladies are always welcome but pasta and pizza lovers will find themselves in good company. Brittany and Meredith wined and dined this visit.
the Story: Gurus Alexandre Geisbert and Julien Ross are back at it! Following the success of their three other Parisian Eateries: Roca Bistro, Roco Pizzeria, and Rococo Kebab is Daroco ~ a neo Italian Trattoria newly opened over the Summer. Said to be a grander version of Roco, Daroco’s menu covers everything from pizzas to antipasti that are as delicious as mom’s… only these Italian chefs add a modern twist to each dish. Taking over the space formerly home to Jean Paul Gaultier’s Flagship store, design duo Oliver Delannoy and Francesca Errico smoothed, spruced and styled the interior of Daroco all while respecting the original loft-like space.
Highlights: In homage to the French designer, the allure of the striped wait staff prove that “the Striped never fade,” which we, of course, couldn’t agree more.
Noteworthy: We thoroughly enjoyed the day time aesthetic as we gawked at the grandiose atmosphere. The bright natural lighting and speckled Terrazzo floor welcome you into a comfortable, warm and, above all, mouth watering environment. From exposed brick and Bol cement columns to plush velvet seating and rich marble table tops, Daroco is a sure bet no matter when you visit.
