About us

Authentique – Epicerie & Bar is the brainchild of Amaury, MatthieuAlexandre and Thomas, 4 French guys who grew up with a passion for artisan food and drinks.
Having lived abroad for years, we have witnessed a strong crave, from local communities, for craft products from France and the French Speaking world.

Authentique – Epicerie & Bar is our way to combine our enthusiasm for Francophone Gastronomy with our urge to share and learn with you about the savoir-faire, the products, their creators and terroirs.

As a result, every month you will have the chance to discover one of the 12 Francophone Regions we are showcasing, through a carefully curated selection of food and drinks as well as a monthly dinner designed by one of our guest chefs.

 

 

 

Chef Residency

Our philosophy to the produce we stock is the same as who we want to host to cook in our kitchen. Authentique – Epicerie & Bar purposefully choose up and coming chefs and give them a platform and kitchen to cook in for a wide audience.

Minou Sabahi & Maud Danoy arrived recently from Paris and are ready to deliver a daily-changing menu here at Authentique until end of August.
Wednesday to Saturday for dinner: Full Menu changing every day (see example attached)
Thursday to Sunday for lunch: Set Lunch (2 courses for £16, 3 courses for £18)
– Other days: Reduced Menu and Toasted Sandwiches
Iranian-born Minou Sabahi grew up in Paris and loves travelling the world in pursuit of ever renewed inspiration for her cuisine. She is particularly fond of the cuisines from Asia and the Middle East (Japan, Iran, Vietnam, etc.). She ran the Hotel Bienvenue restaurant in Paris for the past two years.
Maud Danoy grew up around Perpignan in French Catalonia and is very attached to her Mediterranean roots. With a father oenologue and an oyster farmer as grandfather, she was made to be a real bon-vivant. She re-converted as a chef after studying and working as a comedian.
