CVBorn in Saint-Germain-en-Laye (78), on August 11, 1991. Despite a bac S and a preparatory class for the competitive examinations of the engineering schools, Lise Deveix chose to enroll in an apprenticeship at the cooking school Ferrandi. Trained in the basics of bourgeois and classic cuisine with Manuel Martinez at the Relais Louis XIII (Paris 6e) and Alain Solivérès at Taillevent (8e), she then opened up to modernity with Akrame Benallal (16e). One year as chef de partie in the Parisian star, and now she takes the head of the kitchens of Akrame in Hong Kong, where she will then inaugurate Brut as a consultant. Back in Paris, she opened her first restaurant, Sadarnac, in October 2018, in the popular district of the old village of Charonne, where she wanted to see the gastronomy develop ever more.
The restNestled in the heart of the very charming rue Saint-Blaise, Sadarnac displays, in addition to a sunny terrace on cobblestones, a pretty little room all in velvet (red benches, blue and green armchairs), black marble tables and wall painted with a landscape dreamlike. A peaceful setting to host, sent from her glass pocket kitchen, the plates centered around the (often vegetable) product of Lise Deveix, who strives to source as much as possible directly from producers. Generous, the bistronomic menu multiplies the play on textures, with a few nods to the Asian experience of the chef.
