The ex chef of Merci has opened up a new table at the Hôtel National

Hotel National

The first  Parisian food-in-store, in the Ventilo boutique, that was her. The iconic salad counter at Merci, her again. Always ahead of the trends, Sylvie Potier has been blowing a wind of freshness and novelty on Paris restaurant scene since 10 years.

The info came out during the Summer: the pioneer chef of the healthy wave is setting down her pots and pans at the National . Wild. From now on, the restaurant of this trendy hotel will be featuring two option, the tattoria specialties of La Cicchetteria and the vegetables plates of  Garden National by Sylvie.

And you can believe us, the torrid pasta are up to par with her rice bowl with meat balls (veal, red rice, green beans, peas, avocado, egg… €25) to be nibbled on with a detox juice jus (€10) or a spritz (€13) depending on the mood. Her deluxe houmous, served with crunchy veggies for light dipping? Already cult (€19).

Yummy also, the large composed salads (trumpet courgettes, mint, parmesan; green lentils from Puy, cherry tomatoes cerise, mozzarella di buffala (€18), to be ordered in small format to be mixed up more easily (€10).

Last but not least, the no gluten chocolate delight is a real killer (8 €).


Open from noon to midnight.
