Know About This

What does a Parisian queer bar look like in 2019? A bit like Dirty Lemon — a warm, sophisticated and inclusive new spot in the city’s 11th Arrondissement. The chef and owner, Ruba Khoury — who previously worked in the kitchens of Frenchie, Yam’Tcha and Bonhomie — wanted to create a space that catered to queer women in particular. “I don’t identify with the gay bars in town,” she told me. “Most are clubby and dark, and the menu offerings are nothing special.” Instead, Khoury focuses on serious food and cocktails, served in a bright and gender-neutral atmosphere (think muted hues, dried flowers and antique lighting). She brings her technical skills to a menu of unpretentious Mediterranean dishes, like roasted cauliflower with smoked yogurt and sumac and, after 11 p.m., barbecued kebabs, harissa chicken wings and halvah ice-cream sandwiches, while the American mixologist Brittini Rae Peterson is behind the inventive cocktails, like the mezcal-based Hot Mama. A safe and sexy place for women (queer or not) that anticipates our deepest late-night cravings? I’m in.
