Avec Nous Bistro
Combining the cosmopolitan buzz of Beverly Hills with the refined elegance of St. Tropez, SFA designed the Avec Nous restaurant at the L’Ermitage to offer a contemporary interpretation of the quintessential French bistro led by executive chef Olivier Quignon. The 75 seat restaurant and terrace features an intimate yet energized dining experience which allows for large parties as well as intimate settings.
The restaurant shares a similar warm color palette to the lobby lounge, but possesses a distinctive identity inspired by vintage French details, such as a pewter bar and parquet wood flooring. Chic accents in the materials and fabric evoke classic Chanel; the strategic placement of decorative lighting and antique mirrors adds glamour and sparkle to the bar, as well as increasing the sense of overall space.
Stunning modern fireplaces anchored by the tailored hardwood floors in the dining room and lounge draw the eye and enhance the feeling of warmth throughout, while the introduction of large trees and vines at the exterior create an intimate atmosphere, perfect for hushed conversation and romantic moments a deux.
The design build wine room & bar is a memorable feature where guests can order their wine right from the temperature-controlled glass and metal clad wine cabinets. The culmination of all of the design elements result is sophisticated, classy, seductive – a perfect showcase for the distinctive cuisine.
