Ah Italie. Jules would sell his soul to have some Italian origins, because in his eyes, Italians have all the class, the style, and the charm, and of course that beautiful sing song language. Being the true dandy Parisian that he is, he dreams of having these qualities (you have to remind him that actually he has all of them!). So to compensate for his misfortune at not being Italian, he spends as much time as possible in trattorias; these are the real deal, just like the ones you used to find in Italy. His destination of choice at the moment? Il Circolo, the totally new Italian restaurant in the 9th arrondissement.
A few years back, Jules met Olivia Silberstein, who, after a year spent in Venice as part of her studies, decided to return to Paris to open up her own establishment, built in the image of the country she fell in love with. She teamed up with Luca, the founder of the famous Pizetta de l’Avenue Trudaine, and so the adventure began!
Open since the 24th September, Il Circolo hits the nail on the head: neat decor, contemporary cuisine, and a casually chic atmosphere. Jules loves meeting his closest friends there and spending the nights drinking Spritz (the famous Venetian cocktail), before gorging himself on prawn and courgette carbonara or maybe even grilled aubergine served with buffalo mozzarella and fresh tomatoes. A true delicacy!
And for dessert? Obviously it’s all about the Tiramisu!
