Discover Paris with Diadié DiombanaDiadié Diombana
We’ve partnered with Squarespace to highlight the businesses that are changing the cultural fabric of four key cities: from London to New York via Paris and Berlin. Here, we have Diadié Diombana on his favourite cultural spaces in Paris.
As one of the most important fashion capitals, Paris is known for its style, its sense of sophistication. This seeps into every cultural field, including its culinary scene. One Parisian chef making waves within the culinary arts is Diadié Diombana, otherwise known as Freddy’s Kitchen.
From a young age, the chef cooked for his family and when he found himself at his first apprenticeship, he knew he’d found his calling. The audience is always at the centre of his creations. Combined with his penchant for unique dining experiences, it’s this person-centred and innovative ethos that has seen him previously land a role as Madonna’s live-in chef for a six-month period.
For his travel guide, he shows us how best to experience Paris. From studios to restaurants via community-focused spaces, here’s a selection of travel tips you won’t get anywhere else.

“Red House is a great studio space to rent if you’re into music and the arts. I know a lot of artists in the music industry, so I heard about it from some friends. The materials and the furniture are incredibly [well] designed – the whole space is really specific, unique and modern. Every single room has been thought through well which gives it a calm and inspiring energy [in which] to create.”More Info
“MCR is located in Château Rouge in the 18, which is a place with a big community of West African people, so it’s a big shout-out to African culture. This place helps to reconnect with my origins through their choice of traditional fabrics and materials, whilst in the meantime staying modern and progressive.”More Info
“This place is special because of my friendship with the owners – make sure to ask for Crislaine! Cheval D’or has a long story about being the same restaurant for a long time. It still looks the same in places; you can see the outside still has the bright lit signage of its previous occupant left unchanged. If you want to spend a good time in a restaurant without too much “chichis” and want great food, good ambience, good service – you have to go. I would always recommend going on a Sunday.”More Info
