Inaki Aizpitarte's new restaurant Le Dauphin

...doesn't look like it's ready for opening anytime soon, and despite having won the Le Fooding prize for "Best Decor", everything I saw looked either unfinished or covered up in plastic. Very much a work-in-progress that seemed to be composed of a lot of mirrored surfaces and marble.

That being said, the fact that people were actually working on a Saturday probably means that they hope to welcome diners soon.

For those of you not in the know, this is a rare restaurant designed by superstarchitect Rem Koolhaas (and his collaborator, Clement Blanchet) and will be a much more flexible , tapas style eatery serving lunch and dinner and drinks ,right  next to Inaki's other no choice, market menu restaurant, Le Chateaubriand.

comment gagner un prix sans avoir encore ouvert un restaurant alors que manifestement il n'est pas encore possible de se rendre compte à quoi cela va ressembler... on touche le fond de la bêtise.

I think that you can be sure that a Rem Koolhaas project will be seriously cool and goodlooking. I would say simply that Le Fooding are visionary and ahead of the curve...get over it people...

They are open now - was just there Saturday night. Serving a tapas menu - with their menu coming in to place this week. The place looked great- and it was a buzz. Couldn't have been happier to have seen it open.
