Cyril Lignac Opens a Second Bar des Prés on the Right Bank

Certainly, Cyril Lignac stands out as the most avant-garde chef in Paris's gastronomic and social scene. Beyond his media reputation, Mr. #GourmandCroquant succeeds in delighting and anticipating the desires of Parisians with strong, yet elegantly simple concepts. Proof of this is his Bar des Prés, a chic hotspot in the 6th arrondissement, which has now opened a second location in the Golden Triangle. Already, the most sophisticated personalities from the French media and nearby luxury brands are flocking there.



Just steps away from Avenue Montaigne, the culinary dandy has established a glamorous bar with clear inspirations from London and New York. Starting with the elegant decor, featuring round booths, graphic carpets, marble, and lacquered wood. It's a delight. The bar area is perfect for flirting.

The chef's concept is as obvious as it is trendy: superb cocktails and raw fish served as couture sushi and gourmet small plates, all prepared live at the bar by a top-notch team while signature drinks like the Tokyo Garden, a brilliant mix of gin, shiso, and lychee (€21), or the Zen Garden non-alcoholic drink: green tea, apple, aloe vera, and pandan (€13), are shaken.



The bar des des Prés menu

Green asparagus from Provence with miso (€30), citrus-marinated fish on bombshell crispy rice (€26), lacquered eel and avocado makis (€18), an addictive crunchy galette with Madras curry crab and avocado (€30), beef filet with satay spices and lime condiment (€42), or an assortment of sashimi (€32). Don’t forget the mochi ice cream for dessert (€16) and the extraordinary matcha chiffon cake with chocolate sauce (€14). Orgasmic.

Open every day for lunch and dinner. DJ on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday.
