This restaurant, located in an old movie theater, opened with a big bang about a decade ago. Close to the Champs Elysées, Man Ray cateeds to the in crowd. Johnny Depp, John Malkovich, Sean Penn, and Mick Hucknall (Simply Red) were partners in the business.
The décor was pseudo-nouveau-Asian meets bordello deco, and everything was done on the grand scale.
The place evolved and became known as "The World Place." Now, apparently, no longer open to the public, it is called "Le 1515" and available for lease for weddings, large banquets, etc.
Trendy comes, and trendy goes!
Man Ray, born Emmanuel Radnitzky (August 27, 1890 – November 18, 1976), was an American artist who spent most of his career in Paris, France. Perhaps best described simply as a modernist, he was a significant contributor to both the Dada and Surrealist movements, although his ties to each were informal. They named this trendy place after him, I could see why but still not sure.
The restaurant serves dishes from all over the world at its best, service is wonderful and the crowd is very coooool mix. after 11 the place turn into a lounge/club.
Make sure you make a reservation
This is one of the really cool hang out and chill place in Paris. The decor is strictly Tibetian/Asian fusion and the bar is on the second floor surrounding the main dinning room(on the lower floor). Food is fusion French/Japanese. Music is house and low key...
Favorite Dish: The dessert! The best Chocolate cake with warm liquid chocolate hidden inside!!!
