Bleu Coupole: the new Printemps restaurant with the most beautiful view in Paris


In Paris, it all starts (very often) at Printemps ... Since its creation in 1865, Parisiennes' favorite department store has never stopped reinventing itself and deploying avant-garde concepts. Sales, elevators, a ready-to-wear line from a great designer and even a ski slope in the heart of Paris: the iconic address on Boulevard Haussmann is constantly being renewed.

Latest event: the opening of Bleu Coupole , the new restaurant everyone is talking about with foodista Elvira Masson as a guest to scratch the first menu.

A magical place and a terrace with the most beautiful view of Paris


Bathed in extraordinary light, this magical place set up under the mythical dome – a majestic Art Deco work – turns out to be a meeting place for chill and chic in the heart of Paris, thought of as a high place for lifestyle.

Arriving on the 6th floor, you enter the sunny setting of a beach between swimsuits, pétanque court and DJ sets. Highlight of the show: Bleu Coupole , the restaurant staged in a winter garden atmosphere with large glass facades, opens onto four new terraces with a spectacular view between the rooftops of Paris , Montmartre and the Opéra Garnier , from breakfast to aperitivo. The must ? The possibility of booking your place on the terrace!

The food residency of Elvira Masson and food talents


He dreamed of a creative and sexy place. Bleu Coupole is displayed as a food residence with the arrival every six months of a personality from the culinary world to create a new tailor-made menu, with the complicity of chef Clément Blondeau .

To inaugurate this concept, journalist and author Elvira Masson has put on the menu her favorite recipes from her best-selling book Dans ma cuisine (Marabout editions). “ Being half Swedish, we will find a little bit of Sweden on the plates, like the famous meatballs or a fish gravlax . Mediterranean and Levant cuisine also inspires me a lot, like chakchouka , this pan-fried peppers, onions, tomatoes and eggs. I also like the idea of having dishes to share, so that the time of the meal remains convivial ,” explains Elvira Masson, whose dishes remain on the menu until mid-May.

Other delicacies to try: leek vinaigrette, spicy mayo gribiche eggs (€ 8), green salad (€ 9), Sardinian fregola with shells and sausages (€ 26), a rice pudding with caramel sauce, demonic salted butter (€ 9) and lemon posset, this famous yellow lemon cream with meringue chips and shortbreads (€ 7).
