Monsieur Benjamin

Monsieur Benjamin is a contemporary French bistro that blurs the distinction between comfort food and formal cuisine. This obfuscation is reflected in the architectural design, which presents itself in intermingling layers and at different scales. Through an articulation of materials, light, and reflection, the spaces of the street, dining room and kitchen are blended, creating a vibrant urban experience that is both familiar and unique.
