Petrisserie restaurant mixes food, art and culture in Curitiba

An old house with a backyard in Mercês, in Curitiba, promises to be a new space where good food, culture and music mix and complement each other.

The Petrisserie – Cultura e Gastronomia was born with the proposal of being a restaurant, café and cultural space. The opening to the public will be next Wednesday (11) with a menu that goes from lunch to happy hour.

The house is run by the chef and gastronomy columnist from PluralFelipe Petri. An engineer by training, Petri left Rio de Janeiro for the capital of Paraná in 2015 and then took a turn in his career: he left the profession, took a cook course at Senac-PR, and in 2019 opened the first version of Petrisserie in the format dark kitchen.

The “ghost kitchen” worked until the end of last year with the delivery of dishes in the form of an executive lunch. Now, after more than two years of experience, Petrisserie has taken a step forward by abandoning virtual service to go to the physical encounter with its customers.

The house is open from Monday to Saturday with executive lunch and in the evening with sandwiches and snacks washed down with artisanal draft beer – Pilsen and IPA (respectively R$ 15 and R$ 17) from the Curitiba brewery Maniacs Brewing Co. -, a comprehensive wine list in bottles and cans (from R$65 a bottle) and some classic drinks such as Gin Tonic, Moscow Mule and Negroni (from R$14).

Petri serves three versions of his classic bread with sausage on baguette bread, which he has taken to the four corners of the city at events and gastronomic fairs. There is the version with gorgonzola and crispy onion, the one with sauerkraut and the one with chimichurri vinaigrette (all cost R$19).

For snacking, a good choice is the portions with six pastries, whose flavors are out of the ordinary. Very dry on the outside and wet on the inside, the snacks are served in the bobó versions of shrimp, chili con beans and vegetable curry (from R$22).

Rounding out the happy hour menu are portions of brioche with crab salad (R$25), pork and vegetarian gyoza (R$25), breaded pork dumplings (R$27 for six units) and the classic French fries. and the fried polenta sticks with gorgonzola (R$ 24).

“Our proposal is to serve an affective gastronomy with classic techniques, valuing small producers and local inputs”, explains Petri, who will soon open a vegetable garden so that the kitchen is self-sufficient in herbs and seasonings.

At lunch, the house serves the executive menu with homemade pasta, meat and fish options. Among the options are fettuccine with gorgonzola sauce, gnocchi bolognese, chorizo ​​steak with pumpkin puree and vegetables, rib rice, chicken, and creamy polenta with sausage ragu. The dishes cost between R$ 23 and R$ 50 with the possibility of adding a starter and dessert.

During the afternoon, the space remains open in the form of a cafeteria with coffees and snacks, such as cake of the day, dream of the day, assorted quiches with colonial cheese and mushrooms, vegetarian sandwich, bauru and toast with cheese and molasses.

Petri has partnered with suppliers of local ingredients such as the company Olha o Peixe!, which brings fish from artisanal fishermen from the coast of Paraná to Curitiba, and Flama Torras Especiais, roasting branches of the Manifesto coffee shop, which works with beans from small and medium-sized coffee growers. .

After months of renovation, the beautiful mansion with a 100 m² backyard has gained new air and is ready to host the “Sessões no Jardim” project, in partnership with journalist and writer Cristiano Castilho, who will help in the elaboration of the cultural agenda.

The premiere of the project will be on Saturday of next week (14) with Janaina Fellini, singer, songwriter and “stories collector”. In the show in the garden, she will be accompanied by producer and multi-instrumentalist Vinicius Nisi (A Banda Mais Bonita da Cidade). The event runs from 11 am to 8 pm and admission costs R$ 12.

In the repertoire, well-known tracks from his career, and songs from the EP “Para Onde Vai o Amor” (2021), a kind of work together with his friends and fans, who sent him stories and experiences about loving, even in the midst of the pandemic. . This work has musical direction by Nisi and arrangements by Erica Silva (Mulamba).

“We suffer too much with intangible things. Therefore, this space and this project are to make us act in relation to what we can still change. And also to connect us with the present, and with those around us, adding and producing”, adds Petri.

The “Sessões no Jardim” will be held monthly, on Saturdays, and will have live music, performances, discotheques, interventions and conversations on diverse subjects such as artistic work, the post-pandemic, our relationship with the city, and the arts in general.

“The project will give relevance to those who are asking for a ticket, but it also proposes a step aside so that more people can occupy this space of evidence”, says Petri.

Art, in fact, takes pride of place throughout the house. The façade was under the responsibility of Coletivo Valetão, formed by Thiago Syen, Jorge Galvão and Árvore Um, artists known for several interventions in Curitiba.

On the side wall of the garden, the street artist from Rio de Janeiro based in Vitória (ES), Xamiteama, painted a 52 m² panel. On one of the inner walls of the main hall, there is a work by the cartoonist and cartoonist from Curitiba, Pryscila Vieira, and works by the cartoonist from Plural and Folha de S. Paulo, Benett.

Also in the internal area, there is a wooden sculpture by Jefferson Santos, also from Curitiba, a name for the expression of Brazilian plastic arts.
