In August, Bar Botanique won the prize for Best Design at the first edition of the Foodbloggers Awards. That came as no surprise to me. Its soothing green walls, Scandinavian-style furniture and abundance of exotic plants create a unique atmosphere of cool. Whenever I set foot in this unusual eclectic stronghold of sophistication, I instantly relax. Of course the French-Mediterranean kitchen helps, too.
So when you happen to be in the neighborhood, do as this pink bird does: sit back, treat yourself with a refined Sir Edmond Gin, and say hello to my taxidermied friend behind the bar.
