Arnaud Behzadi’s interiors are as neat as the kitchen of the new Parisian restaurant Mallory Gabsi.
At first glance, it seems that Behzadi adopted a minimal philosophy, using soft colors, clean lines and smooth, polished materials.
However, a closer look reveals a carefully chosen palette of textures and shades. The amber-colored banquette refers to saffron, a favorite ingredient in Mallory Gabsi’s dishes, while touches of turquoise recall the chef’s favorite color.
Behzadi wrapped a cave-like niche in the restaurant in velvet curtains, adding a mirrored ceiling and white marble dining furniture to offset the enclosed space.
Geometric patterned dining chairs, speckled stone floors and oxidized metal columns add dimensionality to interiors. It’s highlighted by mirrored walls and gleaming wood paneling – which suggests a more vintage inspiration for the restaurant.
Mallory Gabsi’s menu is a similar story of contrasts, with unexpected flavor combinations such as chocolate and parsnip.
