Paying homage to the “Beautiful Era” in European history not just in name but intrinsically in nature, Belle Epoque’s stunning turn-of-the-century setting and rustic repertoire of hearty French fare will have diners thinking they have died and gone to Paris.
In the tradition of the great brasseries of France, the menu is classically inspired with many dishes evolving from recipes dating back hundreds of years. With this nostalgic respect for tradition but also a canny feel for contemporary preference, chef de cuisine Sebastien Labbe has ensured there are enough subtle twists to seduce the most seasoned Francophile.
From the smell of freshly baked baguettes wafting through from the neighboring Boulangerie and Patisserie and the well stocked chilled seafood counter, to the accented wait staff and the rich texture-driven decor that characterized 1920’s Paris, one needs only to swing open the grand double doors to see that Belle Epoque has that certain je ne sais quoi about it.
