Inside Guillaume Brahimi's new laid-back city bistro
Sydney CBD has a brand new meeting spot.
Guillaume Brahimi's latest venture, Guillaume's Bistro features a 120 seat dining room, a bar and Brahimi’s first ever patisserie.
Brahimi, who is locally known for Guillaume in Paddington and the Four in Hand, now sets up shop in Sydney's CBD.
The menu includes much-loved French classics, including twice baked cheese soufflé with Roquefort sauce and steak frites with béarnaise.
The interior by Blainey North is a modern take on a classic French bistro - reminiscent of a turn-of-the-century bar.
“Imagine you are in Paris in 1910, sitting in a café with Marcel Duchamp, discussing the principles of Cubism. This was the inspiration for the new Bistro Guillaume in Sydney," says designer Blainey North.
"Like the French artists of that time, the interior was planned using a pure mathematical system, crafting the space in a grid formation through a matrix of timber and bronze frames," she continues. "The restaurant imbues the sense of nostalgia of an old French bistro, however feels absolutely contemporary with duck egg blue leather banquettes and giant custom designed pendant lights.”
The patisserie will be available for takeaway, perfect for early morning commuters before work or lunch time snacks.
