The venue: After establishing his 3-star restaurant and an extraordinary sushi bar in the heart of his legendary address on the Champs-Élysées, Yannick Alléno, the owner of Pavillon Ledoyen, inaugurated Pavyllon in 2019. This place fills the gap for a highly bistronomic experience that was sorely missing between Concorde and the Grand Palais, and it has already been awarded a Michelin star. The spirit of a counter is at the center of the luxurious and contemporary setting designed by the renowned decorator Chahan Minassian. The comfortable terrace on the garden level offers discretion, which is necessary for business or political meetings in the area.
On the menu: With delicacy as the guiding principle, take your time to savor the crab meat in a crispy tartlet with smooth cauliflower cream (€46) or the crunchy buckwheat tuile with caviar grains and lemon cream (€33), followed by the already iconic grilled blue lobster tail with ginger butter cooked over a wood fire (€98), or share THE "cordon bleu" for two (€48/person). The dessert bombshell is the pear cooked in arlette pastry with indulgent creams, a one-way ticket to childhood (€25).
Pavyllon is open every day from 12pm to 2:30pm and from 7pm to 10:30pm. Located at 8 Avenue Dutuit, Paris 8th. Lunch menu priced at €78.
