Daroco is the latest brain child of duo Alexandre Giesbert and Julien Ross, who are behind the successful French eateries Roco pizzeria, Rococo kebabs and Roca bistro. Daroco sits within Jean Paul Gaultier’s former flagship store in the Galerie Vivienne, an arcade built in 1923: exposed brick walls, cement columns with anthracite grey panels, plush petrol blue velvet banquettes and green marble tabletops. The staff wears striped sailor-marinière T-shirts, a clin d’oeil to Jean Paul Gaultier’s signature style.
The food is typical Italian trattoria: antipasti, fresh pizzas cooked in a wood-fired oven, pastas and ice-creams made in-house, rustic linguine carbonara and creamy tiramisu. Bon appétit!
Daroco is located 6 Rue Vivienne, Paris 75002 – Open Monday through Sunday 12pm to 12am
