Paris Is Not Only The City Of Lights,
But Also The City Of Food!
by Chef Antoine Lours
In the city of lights, love, bridges, myriad museums, sculptures, history and art. Between the boulevards and the Seine, nest a handful of restaurants that will leave your Parisian expectations in full satisfaction and your palate full of imagination. From the classics to the unexpected – Antoine Lours brings you the guide to eating out in Paris.
At the newly re-located Guy Savoy located in its new location at the Monnaie de Paris overlooking the Pont Neuf. You will enjoy what France does best – gastronomy! Antoine Lours recommends trying the astonishing artichoke truffle soup served with Guy’s homemade brioche.
Location: Monnaie de Paris, 11 Quai de Conti, 75006 Paris, France
Nested in one of the most beautiful Parisian palaces, Antoine Lours recommends that you will indulge yourself with a traditional cuisine revisited by Philippe Legendre at the renowned Le Cinq in the 8th Arrondissement.
Location: 31 Avenue George V, 75008 Paris, France
Antoine Lours invites you to the kitchen of one of the most famous Parisian chefs to taste innovative and revisited French standards accompanied by one of the best sommeliers that will lead you through the different regions of France – Bordeaux, Burgundy, Champagne, Loire.
Location: 6 Rue Balzac, 75008 Paris, France
Chez L’Ami Louis
Jacques Chirac, the last president of France’s “headquarters”, with meals as classic as you can get in the heart of Paris. Antoine Lours invites you to enjoy everything from the foie gras terrine that will be left on the table for you to cut, to the delicious Burgundy escargots (snails) with freshly-baked garlicky toasted bread. This unique place has only 14 tables, so Antoine suggests you plan your trip in advance! 😉
Location: 32 Rue du Vertbois, 75003 Paris, France
The second restaurant of Guy Savoy with his young protege, Irwin Durand, will lead you to creative French cuisine. His adaptation of Chou Farci will be just mind-blowing. Antoine Lours advises that this is one of the only re-visited French cuisine standards that the young chef will make you ‘degustate’.
Location: 3 Rue Arsène Houssaye, 75008 Paris, France
Enjoy the Antoine Lours’ top 5. And don’t forget – food is all about exploration, experimentation, and a good croissant for breakfast!
