In Milan , on Via Savona , it is THE table to book absolutely during fashion week, where big names in fashion and international celebrities follow one another all year round in incognito mode. A veritable institution for fish and seafood lovers, Langosteria is located on the 7th floor of the Cheval Blanc Paris hotel , with a breathtaking 360° view and the same atmosphere that unites authenticity and absolute chic.
Italian warmth in a couture setting
To imagine an atmosphere worthy of his Milanese addresses, the big boss Enrico Buonocore relied on the American architect Peter Marino ( LVMH darling at the helm of the entire hotel) who reveals a whole scenario of lights sublimating marble , travertine and brass in a harmonious whole of great sophistication... without ever falling into fuss (cool Italian service obliges).
Here, the large tables are facing outwards. There, a shellfish bar in the crosshairs of the open kitchens and the bar. But the highlight of the show is of course the extraordinary terrace with a view… never before seen, overlooking the Pont Neuf and the Seine as far as the Eiffel Tower . It's hard to find a more majestic setting to impress at lunch (ask to be seated at the bar!) or celebrate a special occasion after dark to enjoy the panorama.
Seashells from the high
Langosteria promises top-flight sourcing of the most qualitative and luxurious products serving dishes halfway between tradition and up-to-date tastes. The house specialty? The fish and seafood, which don their finest evening outfits with a signature King Crab as the headliner (€80) but also the very worthy Langosteria frittura , wasabi mayonnaise (€40), linguine with blue lobster (€56), a crispy Milanese rice with gambero rosso (€26), gnocchi alle vongole (€42) or a charcoal-grilled red tuna, peas and taggiasche olives (€38). Psst: it is rumored that they serve the best tiramisu in Paris...
Notice to lovers of Italian juices: sommelier Valentina Bertini (necessarily) gives pride of place to La Botte's references, such as the excellent Rosso di Montalcino by Biondi Santi. Hello!
