Opened in 2007, on the premises of an old printing factory in the historic Passages des Panoramas, Racines is a Parisian bistro marked by its “raw cuisine” made up of great produce and slow cooking.

Simone Tondo took the helm of Racines in late 2017, re-branding the style of the place as a “Bistrosteria” - a balance between his grandmother, Marisa's, recipes and the techniques of a new Parisian bistro. Offering an experience that puts the customer at the heart of it all, serving dishes in casserole dishes and tureens. In the dining room, Stephanie Crockford illuminates the service with her personality and a select list of “vins vivants”.

Named best “Bistrattoria” in the 2019 Le Fooding Guide, and in January Racines was awarded its first star in the 2019 Michelin Guide.
