From Les Portes, Île de Ré, France...
In 1974, Martine and Bernard Giacometti acquired an old hotel restaurant and created La Bazenne. La Bazenne has quickly become a key institution of the North of Île de Ré Island where stars and other French elite meet on the terrace for morning coffee, lunch, crepes, evening cocktails, dinner and late night drinks. It is a true "lieu de vie" (place to be, see and be seen) and was launched to last for generations of enjoyment and memories.
In 2013, Amy and Romuald with the support of Bernard Giacometti decided to export the concept of La Bazenne to the United States, in Naples, Florida. La Bazenne on Fifth draws heavily on the inspiration of the original La Bazenne in île de Ré, France, offering modern French, local and healthy cuisine alongside signature drink pairings and a social club twist.
