Le Perchoir

Le Perchoir

Befitting its status as a fashion capital, an integral part of Paris' gastronomy scene are the places one goes "to see and be seen". Le Perchoir is at the top of the list of current must-visit venues. Le Perchoir is Paris' first real rooftop bar, and its owners promise to keep their patio open all winter long. Believe it or not, but it's hard to find a flat roof in Paris, nor are there many seven-story buildings. Located off the tourist track atop a mundane industrial building in a multiracial neighbourhood with a likewise international selection of eateries, Le Perchoir is not a place you'll come across by accident. It has no loud signs to mark its entrance, only a watchman at the door who checks the reservation list and shows you the way to the elevator to the seventh floor. This would be normal in Berlin, but not in Paris. Even though the evening is cool and everyone is wrapped up in blankets, the bar is full. We see the rooftops of Paris all around us and two of city's main symbols -- the Eifel Tower and Sacré Coeur -- laid out as if on the palm of our hand. A spiral staircase leads from the romantic rooftop to the industrial-style but nevertheless homey restaurant one story lower. Each chair is different, the tables are made of rough-hewn boards, and the clientèle is mostly young, well-situated, creative intellectuals. The menu consists of a set three-course meal -- the chef's daily improvisation. The dishes are placed on a two-centimetre thick board in the middle of the table, and sharing is part of the whole experience. You will not overeat, but the meal is filling enough to want to spend some time afterwards with a glass of wine, enjoying the view.
