Some say that the City of Light invented the word restaurant, and from ancient bistros to modern, trendy eateries, it is still on the cutting edge of dining. And for that reason, there’s no excuse for eating poorly when you’re on vacation in the french capital. Not long ago, a new place opened to the public. Here you have another great restaurant in Paris. Aside from serving tasty burgers, the interiors set an amazing atmosphere, making you want to linger even after dessert.
Paris-based design studio CUT Architectures designed the third location of burger restaurant Paris New York in Paris’ Le Marais, inspired by the fluorescent city lights and breezy beaches of Miami.
Surreal and over-the-top, playful and fun, the new PNY blends together the architectural vocabulary of typical American diner booths with that of colourful beach huts: large tubular booth-like constructions merge the seating with the tables, a design principle also used in the metal staircase which features a white mesh and integrated neon lights.
Exposed brick and concrete walls add an element of contrasting roughness to the otherwise smooth pastel interior whilst the clever placement of cacti and other plants balances out the overall colour scheme.
In addition to the great burgers on offer and the quirky interior, PNY attracts visitors for another, less apparent reason: its bi-coloured neon-lit toilets were designed especially for taking selfies, and even possess their very own dedicated #pee_n_why Instagram hashtag!
The concept of the modern restaurant — private tables, dedicated servers, a selection of finely cooked cuisine — find it all here, at the Paris New York in Le Marais.
To say that Paris has a strong restaurant history is underselling it a little. This new restaurant honors that concept and takes it even further. The restaurant interiors are very relaxed and cosy.
