A new French café called The Parisian Restaurant and Wine Bar,
201 North US Highway 1, Suite D9, Jupiter, opened December 8, 2015. The new restaurant offers a contemporary take on French classics through its Parisian-style cuisine.
Restaurant owner Tarzi Benazzouz, has been in the French restuarant business as a general manager since he first moved to the United States from Paris eight years ago. His father was a chef in Paris, his uncle was a restaurateur and, most notably, his grandfather worked as chef to the prime minister of Spain. The restaurant business is in his blood.
Over the past year, Benazzouz worked to open his own French restaurant with Nefzger, a public relations professional in Palm Beach Gardens and his wife of five years. "We want people to get away for just a few hours and pretend like they're in Paris," said Susan Nefzger, who represents the restaurant said "We want people to get away for just a few hours and pretend like they're in Paris,"
The authentic Parisian brasserie welcomes in customers with its heartfelt and inviting allure. The restaurant offers an all-wood bar and al fresco dining in its enclosed courtyard, in addition to the black and white tile flooring, crown molding, enormous mirrors and bottles of wine. Their selection includes French wines and champagne from small, exclusive French wineries, along with a few boutique California wines. The ambiance, the music, the food and the wine, makes it a total Parisian experience.
The Parisian Restaurant and Wine Bar menu features classic dishes, such as escargot, foie gras terrine and steak tartare, as well as specialties like the baked Dover sole with lemon beurre blanc sauce. Sweets include macarons and homemade crepes.
The Parisian is open Tuesday through Saturday, serving lunch from 11:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. and dinner from 5:30 p.m. to 10 p.m. For more information, visitfacebook.com/TheParisianRestaurant.
