Now here's a place for an adventurous supper! At first, you feel as if you've entered some unknown, passionate collector's private oasis of bohemian kitch: cool details, tables of various sizes, piles of books, arrays of strange and clever antiques (basically, a cornucopia of bric-a-brac), and in the middle of it all, two cats strolling through what they have taken to be as their own kingdom. As the evening starts, the felines laze about on the free chairs, but as the evening progresses, they move on up to the bookcases; one seems to be especially fond of napping on a hefty tome featuring the House of Chanel.
Petrelle is a rather small restaurant, so even though it lies off of the traditional tourist track, you're not apt to find a table at this humming hive without having made reservations beforehand. There are quite a few famous faces to be found among the regular patrons of Petrelle, so don't be surprised if you end up sitting at a table next to someone such as Dita von Teese, the modern-day queen of burlesque.
There's only one cook at Petrelle, and every morning, he procures his ingredients from the local market himself (crates of fresh spinach, asparagus, mushrooms and potatoes can often be seen stacked up right in the dining area). Those with a penchant for watching as others cook will be pleased with Petrelle's open-style kitchen, which allows customers to watch the chef as he prepares their meals.
The dishes listed on the handwritten menus at Petrelle might seem a bit robust, but this is truly refined and exclusive home food - without any "fusion" experiments to mess things up. And while waiting for your order, you can freely page through one of the interesting coffee-table books that have been left at arm's reach, or if you prefer, try your wits at a puzzle book... Petrelle has thought of every detail, all of which are quite charming!
