Why we love it

Paysan, paysanne: nm, nf, adj French word meaning 'peasant' or 'country' (rural). In this context, Paysan is the Friday evening kitchen takeover with Grady Atkins at BLOC Coffee.

The old, derelict block of toilets on a Victorian city-centre park, turned into the city's coolest new coffee shop is hosting Paysan, a pop-up kitchen offering a sophisticated French bistro-style menu, accompanied by wine pairings. Expect quality and seasonal ingredients, close to the kitchen dining and depth of flavour.

Grady Atkins, Head Chef of Paysan started his career as a dishwasher, aged 14 in Sheffield. He then moved to the 5 star Hyde Park Hotel in Knightsbridge before moving on to the US, as well as working in Hong Kong, Paris and Sicily.

His last 6 years in the US were spent teaching the Culinary Arts at Le Cordon Bleu in Los Angeles. Grady has been in Cardiff for the past 11 years and achieved 3 Rosettes at Le Gallois restaurant as Head Chef.
