The venue: There's no doubt that the garden of Le Bristol (the most garden-like palace in the capital) embodies French elegance in a highly relaxing atmosphere, far from the hustle and bustle of Paris. It was already stunning, and this summer, it gets even more beautiful with a makeover from the American fabric editor Schumacher, adorning everything from the entrance to the armchairs. Schumacher has chosen its most beautiful designs for Le Jardin Français, including floral tapestries reminiscent of a cottage and striped cushions that evoke the blinds in the rooms, showcasing its magnificence even more and inspiring us with great decorating ideas.
On the menu: We recommend trying the best green bean salad of your life, garnished with artichoke and hazelnuts (€49), the tartare of raw and smoked salmon with cauliflower cream and curry oil (€58), the avocado and poached egg on toast with smoked salmon (€48), the rigatoni cooked in spicy tomato juice with olive, basil, and chorizo (€47), or the indescribable club sandwich with grilled bacon (€59). For those with a sweet tooth, indulge in the caramel and praline floating island with vanilla custard (€27), a true little cloud.
Le Bristol is open for lunch from 12pm to 3pm, for afternoon tea from 3pm to 6pm, and for dinner from 6pm to 10:30pm. Located at 112 rue du Faubourg Saint-Honoré, Paris 8th. © Vincent Leroux
