Jaime Hayon Brings Medieval Paris into the 21st Century.
When the inventive and playful Chef Antonin Bonnet, the whose culinary style was shaped by his mentor Michel Bras, set out to create a culinary experience founded on quality, simplicity and beauty he turned to design visionaire Jaime Hayon to help complete his new cuisine destination. Flexibility, excellence, comfort, invention, simplicity – from the interior design to the plate, Le Sergent Recruteur gives Paris a new understanding of sophistication. From the bar, where you can enjoy irresistible comfort food, to a private room, to the dining room which seats 30, the Sergent Recruteur promises to become the new culinary heart of Paris.
The restaurant is composed of three areas. At the entrance, the bar, in a welcoming spirit, invites you to dine with an eclectic selection of drinks and dishes from around the world. The passage from the bar to the restaurant is a glass honeycomb curtain. The dining room is a place of sharing where the chefs invite guests to sample their creations. Finally, the private dining room is hidden in the basement: A table for ten, in the midst of an exceptional setting, reveals a collection of dishes from different meats, fowl and a choice of fine wines and liqueurs.
Located in the heart of Paris – 41 rue Saint-Louis en l’Ile / 75004 – Hayon has respected the history of one of the oldest restaurants in Paris. This historic address was the first place where the soldiers of Napoleon found themselves conscripted to fight. It has become a world famous feasting place known today for transforming the dreamlike ambience of the medieval era to the 21st century. The restaurant is a veritable culinary bridge between the cuisines of the Rive Droite and the Rive Gauche. The furniture, the bar, the lights, an Aubusson-style tapestry woven by the Museum of Textiles in Amsterdam, masks, vases- all are unique pieces created by Jaime Hayon exclusively for Sergent Recruteur.
