Judicaël Noël, coming from Normandy like our Chef Virginie Basselot, is the new Chef Barman of the Saint James Paris.
This 26-year-old young man, who made his classes at the Hotel du Collectionneur and at the restaurant of the Opera, was immediately enchanted by the cozy atmosphere of our Library Bar, ideal to relax and chat around his specialty: custom-made cocktails according to the guests’ tastes.
Judicaël loves trying out new matches, enhancing alcohols, fruits or fruit syrups in order to bring out their subtlest aromas. Always looking for new flavors, he doesn’t hesitate to use herbs, aromatic plants and vegetables, and describes himself as an “herbalist”. Perfectionist and avant-gardist, Judicaël likes to serve surprising cocktails (in the past, he didn’t hesitate to mix foie gras with raspberry).
The Library Bar now displays its new menu in a leather book, in which Judicaël put his imagination at work.
In addition to the classic cocktails, try his “creation cocktails” or “virgin cocktails” (without alcohol). For example, the Jardin with rhum flavoured with red pepper, verbena and lemongrass, Chambord, cranberry juice, bitter ginger and lime juice, or the Montgolfière, without alcohol, with apple and pineapple juice, cinnamon syrop and lime juice. Yum!
Beautiful days will shortly arrive. You will soon enjoy these delicious creations from Judicaël Noël and his team (among whom, Anthony, who has just been awarded with the title of “Meilleur Apprenti de France – congratulations to him!) in the incredible garden, adorned with hot-air-balloon-like arbors by Bambi Sloan.
