By the Louvre, Kitsuné opens its first café-bar-restaurant

Six years after opening their first café, Kitsuné introduces their first café – bar – restaurant. The new place is located just a few minutes from the Louvre — Place André Malraux to be exact — and features an interior design by Cïgue, one of the most acclaimed French design studios at the moment. This is Kitsuné’s third Parisian café, its sixth, worldwide.

The place is meant to be a vivid escape from the Parisian craze. The places opens at 8:30 and closes at midnight, which allows everyone to visit for the craving of their choice. If coffee, snacks and cocktails were pretty much your only option before this location, meals and fine dishes will now be part of the menu. The dining menu was imagined by chef Yuji Tani and will be executed by her young counterpart chef Chihiro Yamazaki.

Several versions of the menu are expected to come and go with the seasons. The delicacies served at Kitsuné’s first restaurant will come from different places of inspiration: French bistrot, American dining and Japanese cuisine. 

The modest, yet sophisticated place has a capacity of about 50 guests. The entrance and floor level serve as the café, which you can enjoy starting 8:30 in the morning. The upper floor opens later on in the day. The dining reveals a neater atmosphere, in which you can even enjoy several signature cocktail creations.
