Jacquemus Opens New Parisian Café: Oursin

After launching Café Citron in Paris earlier this year, the very ‘a la mode’ fashion designer Simon Porte Jacquemus of his own brand Jacquemus just opened a new, stunning Mediterranean restaurant called OURSIN in the French capital.

OURSIN (which means sea urchin in French) is a partnership with Caviar Kaspia and the Galeries Lafayette.

Like Citron, OURSIN will also be located in the Galeries Lafayette Champs Élysées. The eatery has worked with former Septime group chef Érica Archambault on the menu, serving diners with seafood dishes, pasta, salads and desserts.

The interiors of the restaurant feature white walls that bring to mind houses that sparkle along the Mediterranean coasts. Floor to ceiling windows allow the sun to shine into the room, while beautifully-crafted pottery by Nadiia, handwoven rattan chairs and artistic tableware add finishing touches to the dreamy space.

Oursin will be open all week, Monday and Sunday from noon to 9:30 p.m. and Tuesday to Saturday from noon to 10:30 p.m.
