Reviews le George offers a light and modern Mediterranean-style cuisine designed for sharing, with many dishes available in half portions, and a balanced, healthy cuisine bursting with flavour and freshness. Elegant gourmet fare is perfect for special moments. The convivial, gastronomic experience takes guests on a journey between the French Riviera and northern Italy.

Interior designer Pierre-Yves Rochon created a timelessly chic and relaxed setting drawing on modern influences. The room has a distinctly Parisian vibe. The highlight is the stunning vaulted ceiling that works in harmony with the work of art by the contemporary artist Junior Fritz Jacquet and the large windows looking onto the Marble Courtyard

PENATI AL BARRETO

Location 9-11 Rue Balzac, 75008 Paris
Cuisine Italian  gastronomic – 1 Michelin star
Web Link http://www.penatialbaretto.eu/
Reviews Chef Alberico Penati has brought upscale Italian cuisine to the romantic Hotel de Vigny just off the Champs-Élysées. The dining room is subtly decked out with wood-paneled walls and warm shades, a bar with a huge counter and a patio in the back, destined for smokers.

The chef honed his chops at Il Carpaccio in Le Royal Monceau hotel and Harry’s Bar in London. He delivers authentic dishes, prepared via traditional recipes from various areas of Italy. His skills are manifest in enhancing the fare with proficient cooking and suitable seasonings. Based around quality ingredients, the menu features an herb-aromatized broth filled with stewed fish, scampis and vegetables, and palatable spaghetti with sardines, a traditional selection from Sicily that is flavored with fennel. For dessert, we especially recommend the take on the chocolate bar, a crunchy biscuit made of Gianduja with Piedmont hazelnuts.

To top it all off, a wide range of cocktails such as the Bellini as well as Italian vintages are suggested to accompany the meal. Nice and efficient service overseen by Sandro Funaro

ALLARD

by

Alain Ducasse

Location 41, rue Saint-André des Arts, 75006 Paris
Open every day for lunch and dinner
Cuisine Bistro
Web Link http://www.restaurant-allard.fr/en/restaurant/place-history
Reviews For over 80 years, Allard has been one of the most sought after gourmet addresses in Paris

Located in the heart of Saint-Germain-des-Prés, it remains one of the last authentic French gourmet bistros. Today still, the establishment is filled with the spirit of Marthe Allard, « mother cook » who founded the restaurant in 1932. Allard is above all the story of a peasant from the Burgundy region who traveled up to Paris carrying her sincere and generous family recipes of cuisine.

In 1985, a page is turned. The Allard family sells the restaurant. Claude Layrac from Aveyron takes over the restaurant 1995. For over 20 years, he perpetuates the Allard family spirit and the fundamentals of its cuisine, such as the Challans duck with olives, shoulder of Limousin lamb or coq au vin. By passing on the restaurant to Alain Ducasse, he is confident that: « this restaurant to which i am so attached will keep its personality, its character ».

Reviews Our French restaurant ‘La Cuisine’ immerses guests in a friendly, artistic decor that elegantly combines large tables and more private alcoves.

Guest tables face the open kitchen of Chef Laurent André, who joined the hotel in 2013. Hans incorporates light and flavorful notes in his sophisticated, generous and spontaneous French cuisine.

His flavors are beautifully complemented by the wines selected by our Head Sommelier Manuel Peyrondet (Meilleur Ouvrier de France and Best Sommelier in France) and by the desserts, macarons and chocolates created by famous pastry chef Pierre Hermé, the “Picasso of Pastry”.

A magnificent fresco, ‘A Garden in Paris’, by French artist Stéphane Calais, graces the ceiling.

“The STAY finally arrives in Paris. Located at the Hotel Sofitel Le Faubourg, in the heart of the fashion district, STAY Paris is an urban restaurant concept inspired by the trip.
STAY caters to a discerning clientele, eager for adventure and unmissable. The unexpected story, an allegory of an escape, thus declines to suit the bold creativity Alléno. »

Location Pont Alexabdre III, Invalides  side
Web Link www.faustparis.fr/
Reviews One of the most iconic views of Paris is from the Pont Alexandre III, the most stunning bridge in the City of Lights. Tucked underneath on the left bank, is Faust, since throwing open their doors last fall, it has quickly marked its place as a chic fixture in Parisian nightlife with impressive DJ sets from around the world and French underground. The restored industrial structure has more to offer than a sound system, as it also plays home to home to a restaurant and bar directed by the Michelin-starred chef Christophe Langree and this time of year a sun drenched terrace.

Visiting Faust has a nostalgic Grand Parisian feel, bare that in mind, as you sit on the terrace with a glass of champagne and watch the world go by. With the sun out, everyone returns to the old Parisian sport of people watching.

The menu is an updated take on the traditional brasserie, steering away from the trend of fusion food; they focus on homemade dishes made in house using fresh and seasonal produce. Their most popular dish is their beef ribs shared for two, with the menu only in French, look for the Côte de Boeuf pour 2 personnes (68€). With a tempting menu that changes with the season, it took a few minutes to decide what order

Reviews There are many things to like about chef Mathieu Pacaud‘s new restaurant Hexagone in Paris. Not only does it serve some exquisitely refined contemporary French cooking that tips its hat at the great traditions of Escoffier, it also has one of the best wine lists of any recent restaurant in Paris. This lavish list, which also includes a spectacular selection of grand cru wines by the glass, is run by Benjamin Roffet, one of the city’s most talented and charming sommeliers, too. There’s also a serious bar at this address with a major mixologist in the person of Thomas Girard.

Reviews
Jean-Pierre Vigato, chef and owner of Apicius, has settled close to the Champs-Elysées in a splendid private mansion that dates from the early 18th century. The facade’s classical architecture looks out onto a vast private garden. Vigato presents some audacious dishes and as always bistro fare and bourgeois cuisine are cozy neighbors. Both reach upwards with extremely refined preparations. Reserve at least two months in advance.

Attn : Sensitive restaurants : Please book thru your local hôtel concierge as Apicius doesn’t accept  Amex foreign cards  anymore

Reviews The restaurant, located at the very heart of the famous luxury hotel, embodies all you can imagine of a grand restaurant in the French styleAlain Ducasse propose a pure cuisine which turns simple into good. Real taste is returned to its truth, without any superfluous ingredient. Preparations are purified to leave room to the strength of taste. Going back to basics is also to respect the rhythm of the seasons, when the product is at its best.Inspired by the Salon de la Paix at the Château de Versailles, the room majestically imposes itself: antique mirrors, Crystal chandeliers, bronzes, marble, and frescoes… Romantic elegance, refined timeless décor. And then, there is the enchanting view, which materializes through large windows, overlooking the neighbouring Jardin des Tuileries.

Reviews A restaurant in stone, wood and leather, finding balance between the vast walls withtheir warm tones and the multiplicity of clear, limpid highlights.A succession of dining rooms where Jean-Michel Wilmotte’s partitions, windows,

mirrors and lighting set off Guy Savoy’s sculptures, paintings and other objects.

Guy Savoy, a generous and aesthetic chef, defines cooking as “the art of transforming ingredients that are full of history into joy”! The mental landscape of his cuisine reveals simplicity and sophistication, childhood memories and invention, and it is unapologetically tasty and rigorously executed. N. B. this exceptional restaurant will be moving  to the Hôtel de la Monnaie, in the centre of Paris.

Reviews There are 2 Ateliers : One Located in the Saint Germain area and the Other in Etoile (Champs Elysées)They are famous for their counter seating but there are also a few tables.

SAINT GERMAIN:

Instead of normal tables, the original concept of the Robuchon-designed decor features high stools facing the counter. Here diners can savour dishes served tapas-style. Superbly executed, in keeping with the art of simplicity!

ETOILE:

This new restaurant run by the famous chef Joël Robuchon is situated just a stone‘s throw from the Arc de Triomphe. The “atelier” concept has proved popular – a long counter with stools, a red and black decor and delicate, simple dishes with a mix of French, Spanish and Asian influences.
