At Camondo, art is on the plate
The Nissim de Camondo museum, near the Monceau park, opened a restaurant in the renovated garage and stable courtyard of a private mansion built in the early 1900s for the Camondo familly and their fabulous collection of 18th-century artworks. Interior designers Pauline d’Hoop and Delphine Sauvaget from Favorite retained the steel beams and coffered ceiling of this unique location redone in the style of a winter garden. Outside, the courtyard has been transformed into a plant-covered terrace, sheltered from the noise, the ideal place to sit and enjoy Alexis Le Tadic’s bistronomic menu. The young chef, who worked alongside Alain Ducasse and Ronan Kervarrec at La Chèvre d’Or, revisits traditional dishes with Italian or exotic flavors. He concocts generous, sun-kissed meals like Sardinian fregola risotto or paella. With his sea bass tartare, he wields his seasoning skills and follows the proven plating techniques of chef Alain Passard to showcase a sleek style with no empty gestures. Pastry chef Christophe Michalak presents a farandole of classic desserts with his own personal twist! Yuzu-lime pie, Montblanc chestnut ice cream, Paris-Brest with Piedmont hazelnuts… Prix-fixe lunch menus at €30 and €38.
