Le Quatrième Mur: the curtain rises on a spectacular culinary wall

brasserie

‘Imagine a great wall that separates you from the pit at the edge of the theatre; play as if the curtain did not rise', wrote Denis Diderot.

The Basque chef Philippe Etchebest opened the doors of his brasserie in the National Opera in September of 2015, creating an event in the historic heart of Bordeaux. In the sumptuous setting of a Bordeaux heritage landmark, this chic and contemporary restaurant, with affordable prices, represents all on its own the excellence of the French art of living, where the fine exists alongside the good.

The chef, (Meilleur Ouvrier de France in 2000), who won two stars at another institution in Saint-Émilion, is highly popular thanks to an exceptional career and the media recognition he has won through different culinary television programmes, such as the French versions of ‘Kitchen Nightmares' and ‘Top Chef'. Faithful to the values ​​of sharing and generosity, he offers his fans,who come in great numbers to test his talents, uninhibited cooking that leaves the best place to taste. The crispy poached egg and black Bigorre pork belly, or the seared veal, veil of bacon, and Cestas carotene illustrate the geographical anchor of the chef, who takes regional seasonal products to new heights. Teamwork and desire are, for this South-westener, two key drivers for the success of his new challenge: ‘We must play together; individualism has no place in the kitchen!'
