Revamped by Architect and interior designer Lola Gonzalez, in late 2015, the former cabaret has a fresh look that inspires most. Elegant and poetic, plants take centerpiece giving it a garden appearance, a meeting of the finest handicrafts; marble, brass, terrazzo, straw and wood…large banquets and tables, a large house with an encircling balcony, a coveted cocktail bar.
A modern take on dishes by Guillaume Lutard; “Poached organic egg, mushrooms, liver” “roasted wild cod, braised fennel”, “filet de canette de challans roasted with honey and ginger, figs, butternut and sweet potato” and “Pavlova, passion fruit.” A refined cuisine with worldly touches.
And the transition continues upstairs at the cocktail bar, a delightful surprise !

The opening of David Toutain in 2013, was clearly anticipated, due to the reputation of a prodigy he cultivated at the kitchen of Agapé Substance. Located in les environs of champs de mars, one might expect a touch of “snobisme”, on the contrary the minimal design & earthly colors set off a casual and unpretentious impression. Vegetables are at the centerpiece of Toutain’s cooking; the carte blanche menu offers 4-6 creations, meticulously crafted, striking a balance of textures and subtle flavors. For a complete tasting, wine pairing is also at the rendez-vous, making it an exclusive culinary experience worth every penny.

Restaurant Papillon Paris
After his departure from Le Meurice (ex Alain Ducasse), Christophe Saintagne opened his own restaurant “Papillon” in the 17th arrondissement. Discreet yet elegant, minimalist yet warm, seated on white wooden chairs, or camel leather banquets, the plates are delicately and beautify presented.
A sophisticated simplicity is seen in the juxtaposition of ingredients, an appetizer of eggs, black truffles & bacon, a parboiled Pollack with leeks & capers or black pork of Bigorre with the oysters from Utah Beach. A three stars quality, at prices of a modern bistro.
