Grand Beau, the most stylish organic table in the15th

Decoration of the interior of the Grand Beau restaurant

A new organic restaurant has just blossomed in the western part of Paris. Nestled on the 3rd floor of Galeries Lafayette Beaugrenelle, Grand Beau is blowing a fresh breeze on this young up-and-coming district.

A dining room overlooking the Seine

One rarely has the occasion to enjoy such a fab view of Paris. From its high perched location and large bay windows, Grand Beau offers a spectacular panorama overlooking the Seine. Our advice? Coining a table near the window to watch the spectacle.

Inside, the place is human-sized. The dining room, revolving around the central bar, highlights raw and natural materials: wood, brass, terrazzo, terracotta walls with a large communal table, cozy alcoves and an open kitchen to hide nothing.

A green and gourmet menu

mimosa egg, vegetarian dumplings, spinach, cauliflower, mushrooms, rustic pear tart, lemon vegan cheesecake from Grand Beau restaurant

Grand Beau offers a 100% organic seasonal neo-bistro, focused on vegetal without excluding meat.

The result is a vegetarian pâté en croûte with smoked celery, spinach, cauliflower and mushrooms (€12), an old-fashioned egg mimosa with its herb mayo to be dipped into with bread sticks (€8), fried veggie balls with cumin, gomasio, algaes and vegetal tahini cream with soft potato and pumpkin (€17) and a farm range chicken cooked at low temperature escorted by a wonderful potato gratin dauphinois (€25).

Proof that meat holds its own here, the veal cheeseburger in XXL format, with a Dallas sauce served with spiced potatoes (€18). The key? Being close to French farmers and breeders whose production is certified organic.

That’s the tip of iceberg. In reality, the commitment of Grand Beau goes way beyond: waste treatment, compost, green energy, household products respectful of the environment—right down to the staff wearing recycled materials.

The amazing desserts counter of Tookies Gambetta

Discovered on Instagram, pastry chef/nutritionist Jennifer Hart-Smith, aka Tookies Gambetta, signs for the very first time the pastries of a venue in Paris. Her credo? Healthy sweet treats, with very little sugar, elaborated from whole and non transformed foods.

Zoom on her vegan lemon and tangarine cheesecake (€9), her rustic tart with pears and chantilly (€9), chocolate-Earl Grey cream puff (€8) and her signature sesame cookie (€5). Good news, you can come nibble on them all afternoon for an extended tea time

Open every day lunch and dinner.
