DROO turns former lingerie atelier in Paris into charming restaurant Porte 12

Porte 12 is a fine dining restaurant offering fresh seasonal local menu. The Chef Vincent Crépel focuses on bold flavor combinations that you wouldn’t expect in French cuisine. The interior was designed by London-based studio DROO.

“Reactivating what was once a textile and lingerie atelier, Porte 12 has been created in harmony within the fundamentals of its predecessors – the marvellous artistry works of one’s pair of hands and ceaseless interminable inspirations – merged in a blend of contemporary and old, creativity and simplicity,” says DROO
