About Balagan

Balagan Restaurant offers guests and locals alike a memorable dining experience, from the hand-crafted cuisine and cocktails, to the unique and captivating decor.

Location

Prized by Parisian gastronomes, the Rue Mont-Thabor, a small street parallel to Saint-Honore and two steps from the Jardin des Tuileries and the Place Vendome, houses a formidable density of quality restaurants.

Our Partners

It is in this very Parisian landscape that the three founders of the Experimental Group - Romee de Goriainoff, Pierre-Charles Cros, and Oliver Bon - chose to open a new restaurant in collaboration with Assaf Granit and Uri Navon, two of the most Israeli chefs. Those two emblematic figures in the renewal of Israeli cuisine first came onto the scene with their restaurant in Machne-Yehuda, the great Jerusalem market. Their approach is simple: with precision, prepare dishes that are tasty, energetic, colorful and inventive, and that bring life back to this cosmopolitan and joyful gastronomy, born from the adaptation of every tradition brought from the diaspora. What soon followed were: yodale, wine bar, The Culinary Workshop and Talbiye, in Jerusalem, and then the award winning restaurants Palomar and the Barbary, in London. Head chef of Balagan will be Dan Yosha, a young talent from Machne-Yehuda in Jerusalem.

Venue

The Parisian designer was inspired by the graphic forms of the Rue de Rivoli and Tuileries (arcades, streetlights, borders), a range of Mediterranean references (sandstone, ceramics, ochre, green tapestries), and the welcoming and emblematic blue of Assaf Granit’s restaurants. Together, she imagined a joyful fantasy surrounding the counter of a long, open kitchen. Matt colors, triangular shapes, unfinished wood, copper and brass, the silky touch of stone, and the brilliance of enameled ceramics...the rich profusion of spaces accompanied by impressive service consoles seem to announce the equally rich cuisine being devised under the gaze of all, a luminous gastronomy echoed by the sun-shaped mirrors designed by Alexandre Girard.
