The New Stylish Brasserie by Stéphanie Le Quellec

The Brasserie Kitchen at the Madame Rêve Hotel near the Louvre in Paris.

Who better than the acclaimed Michelin-starred chef Stéphanie Le Quellec to bring comfort to our plates and lift our spirits when everything seems to be falling apart? Nestled at the bottom of the luxurious Hôtel Madame Rêve, her new establishment, Kitchen, with its chic brasserie vibe, offers a warm embrace during lunch breaks.


An Extraordinary Venue

Its grand opening in 2021 made waves. Facing the Fondation Pinault stands the 5-star Hôtel Madame Rêve, a majestic gem housed in the former Louvre post office, reflecting the visionary hotel project of Laurent Taieb (known for Le Trésor, Bon, and Kong). With a stunning rooftop and 82 rooms straight out of a modern Parisian fairy tale, the hotel sets the mood for luxury.

To bring the 300 sqm brasserie to life, the finest artisans (Atelier de la Chapelle, Maison Henryot, Pierre Frey, Mathieu Lustrerie, etc.) were summoned to enhance noble materials such as mahogany, marble, and velvet. The result is an atmosphere that captures the essence of contemporary Paris—festive, demanding, and brilliant, with monumental chandeliers and 8-meter-high ceilings.


Heartfelt and Desirable Cuisine

While the restaurant's décor remains unchanged, it lacked a distinctive culinary identity. Enter Stéphanie Le Quellec, infusing Kitchen with her vision of a chic yet unpretentious bistro. Both light eaters and hearty appetites appreciate her take on French classics: hand-cut steak tartare (€25), Parisian mushroom salad with burrata and roasted hazelnuts (€17), foie gras pâté en croûte (€20), boldly designed bone marrow (€15), succulent pork loin with buttery mashed potatoes (€27, truffle supplement €8), warm butternut squash velouté with roasted coffee and chestnuts (€16), rice pudding (€12)...

And because the chef doesn't believe in limitations, there's a fantastic selection of "Not So Frenchy" dishes: za'atar-rubbed lamb shoulder with tajine vegetables (€29), red curry shrimp with coconut lime rice (€29), and pappardelle with truffle cream and grated Burgundy truffle (€36). Everyone leaves satisfied.

Open every day, reservation recommended. Lunch from 12 pm to 3 pm, reduced menu from 3 pm to 7 pm, dinner from 7 pm to 11:15 pm.
