Hidden behind a rather anonymous facade, this new bistronomic location near the Bon Marché and across from the famous Ferrandi cooking school has quickly become a powerful magnet for the beautiful people. Albert de Monaco, Vincent Lindon and a few business bigwigs like Christian Courtin, the influential head of Clarins, have already graced its tables. Owners Alexandre Taittinger (from the Champagne family of the same name) and his friend Charles-César d’Amat give a warm welcome that makes you feel right at home in the long dining room, while in the kitchen, young Emeric Le Puil (formerly with Akrame, Alain Milliat, Le Meurice and Le Comte de Gascogne, where he was chef) concocts delicious seasonal cuisine: like the lovely egg parfait with bacon and white asparagus (€10), a delicate slow-cooked salmon with burrata and avocado (€14), a generous helping of crispy veal sweetbreads served whole (€35), or a flavorful cut of Angus beef (€19). To finish our meal, Robin Pasquier’s desserts also made a good impression, such as the fresh fruit salad with pomegranate juice, almond crumble and honey sorbet (€10). Lunch special at €18 for main dish and starter or dessert, or €22 for all three. A short but sweet list of well-chosen wines, some available by the glass, and of course Taittinger champagne!
