An unexpected taste of Spain-sur-Seine; the idea behind El Fogon, which translates as hearth, was that it would be “modern, convivial and delicious”.
The dining area features padded bronze and purple benches, and wooden tables with cutlery hidden away in a drawer.
The most striking element in the simple décor is the Jamon Iberico, the finest ham in the world, that hangs hoof and all in the dining room, waiting for its curtain call, to appear in paellas or croquettes.
The chef comes from a family with four generation in the restaurant business. He’s not interested in trends. He uses the finest products to create a taste of Spain.
