IL CUOCO GALANTE
IL CUOCO GALANTE is Philippe Baranes’ third address and in it he celebrates the art of fresh pasta and authentic, regional Italian cooking. The interior design is by François Doll who has given the space two key features. The first, is the prominence given to craftsmanship and the best in bespoke, handmade details; the second the decision to open the kitchen onto the centre of the restaurant. Hanging from the ceiling, a solid oak structure marks out the perimeter of the kitchen but without closing it off. This is a bold architectural statement. It highlights the simple beauty of traditional carpentry while all the time recalling the austere sculptures of Sol LeWitt.
