The idea is that you don’t eat in a restaurant but in a private apartment. That is of course a public apartment. Something where you can feel as you are in your friend’s house, with all stuffs, objects, books and furnishings.
“Derrière is located in the 3rd district of Paris amongst numerous bars and restaurants of the area. Its name (derriere=behind) originates from its exact location, which right at the back of 404 restaurant and Andy Wahloo cocktail bar in la rue des Gravilliers.
What is very distinguishing about this restaurant is its atmosphere, which again provides its focal point. With the decoration of a French baroque house, Derrière is equipped with numerous ‘little touches’ that make the visitor feel as if they are having a family dinner. Little wooden chairs, messy bookshelves loaded with huge piles of books, an old ‘baignoire’, a bed placed in the middle of the room space, a ping-pong table and lots of other objects that add a little something to making Derriere ‘feel like home’.”
