L’Aube, the new culinary gem of Paris
Thibault Nizard, a talented chef at the mere age of 30, has opened the doors to his own restaurant, L’aube, nestled between the Louvre and the Palais-Royal. Inspired by the present moment and guided by his culinary instinct, Thibault Nizard offers an exceptional gastronomic experience, blending the grand classics of French cuisine with a touch of creativity. Despite his young age, Thibault Nizard worked in several renowned fine dining establishments, including the highly acclaimed three Michelin- starred chef Alain Solivérès at Taillevent. His culinary prowess, par- ticularly his sauces, has earned him recognition as a “young talent in the 2023 edition of the Gault & Millau guide. Most recently, he was at the helm of Drouant, a renowned establishment. His cuisine, characterized by remarkable coherence and finesse, will delight even the most discerning palates, and deserves a first Michelin star. The ambiance of the restaurant reflects Thibault Nizard’s culinary style: understated and refined. The modern dining room, adorned in shades of gray and blue, reveals an open kitchen where the chef prepares the dishes that are a true homage to French cuisine. Notable examples include the impeccable artichoke poivrade, a delightful quenelle de volaille, and grilled Saint-Pierre with peas, wild mushrooms, and a fish stock with almond milk. Each dish is served with precision and elegance. The desserts, crafted by the chef himself, are assembled in front of the guests. With 300 references, boasting an inventory of 6,000 bottles, including the Rhône Valley wines—a region close to the chef’s heart, the restaurant will be a destination for wine lovers. Besides ‘à la carte’ options, the restaurant offers four menus, including an “after-show” menu, catering to its proximity to the Comédie Française and the Théâtre du Palais-Royal.
