Ephemera / Restaurant / Paris

3. Ephemera

The brainchild of a trio of friends just out of the Paul Bocuse institute, Ephemera is the founding group of a hoped-for series of ‘immersive’ but affordable restaurants to transport customers into different scenarios. 'Under The Sea' sits in a hidden room of the MK2 Bibliothèque using effects designed by a film director, such as animated floors and projections to create the desired atmosphere. The food is fairly simple, French, and heavily inclined towards seafood, although burgers are available, but the atmosphere is definitely an innovation.
