Rendezvous in the jardins des Tuileries gardens, at the heart of the new dining room of the Arts Décoratifs restaurant, instead of the ex Saut du Loup. The gang from Monsieur Bleu has succeeded in making this into the hot Parisian rendezvous that this wing of the Louvre deserved: a stunning decor signed Joseph Dirand, all in marble, Saarinen chairs, 60s and Art Deco details with an incredible view overlooking Paris.
À la carte. Really delicious socialite dishes concocted by Benoît Dargère that suit all appetites, twigs as well as big eaters. Concretely: a real vitello (22€) tonnato just like the mamma makes it: FANTASTICO ! To be noted: a great squid salad (18€) and remarkable courgette flower fritters (18€). For those who like them: truly amazing slightly glazed stuffed tomatoes (23€). Pastas? nec plus ultra alle vongole (25€). For the classics: burrata to share (30€), truffle pizza (26€) and a tiramisu just as we like it (13€).
Who do you run into? The mundane Paris in-crowd and pretty cocottes who like to see and be seen. The fashion heavies (Alexis Mabille and consorts) the friends of the owners (Gilles Malafosse, Laurent de Gourcuff) also show up here. And for sure it will be the hottest place to be during the next fashion-weeks!
Special kudos to the wowie terrace with a view of the Eiffel Tower and the Louvre pyramid with an outdoor bar.
A really glam Gatsby in Paris side. Also to be noted, the great bar on the first level to go for a drink.
Open everyday from noon to 2am, for lunch from noon to 3pm and for dinner from 7.30pm to 11pm.
