Discovering the best restaurants in Paris and its region is a must.

Hôtel de la Marine at Place de la Concorde

First of all, the Hôtel de la Marine is a must. After 3 years of refurbishment, this emblematic Parisian monument, located on the Place de la Concorde is finally reopened. While the building is impressive enough in itself, we advise you to extend your visit to the two restaurants. Michelin star chef Jean-François Piège has devised the menu for the restaurant that flanks the main courtyard, while the Café Lapérouse, located to the south of the courtyard, will offer a lighter menu for every moment of the day.

Parcours de la Gastronomie concept in Paris Region

The Hôtel de la Marine is part of the Parcours de la Gastronomie en Île-de-France project, which promotes art de vivre and French gastronomy. The Parcours de la Gastronomie is a concept that aims to promote French gastronomy and the know-how of the Paris region’s producers, restaurateurs and craftsmen that make up the local food industry. The sites that form the Parcours de la Gastronomie are approved by a jury of 15 qualified specialists. Evolving itineraries will therefore be suggested over the course of the seasons to reflect new trends, new openings across the Paris region, the requirements of visitors and how well these sites combine with one another.

Exceptional Gourmet experiences in Paris and its region

For exceptional experiences, the region features restaurants in places as unusual as they are prestigious. First off, 58 Tour Eiffel is reopened with internationally renowned chef Thierry Marx in command. The brasserie is situated on the first level of the Eiffel Tower.

For history lovers, a visit to the Château and gardens of Versailles can be made even better with lunch at Restaurant Ore from the Ducasse Group (External link) , which boasts views of the château’s courtyards! If you want to eat outside, head to La Petite Venise. Out on the terrace, you can enjoy views across the Grand Canal one way and the Bassin d’Apollon the other. When the fountains are on at the weekends, it is truly magical.

If you are more drawn to contemporary art or the hustle and bustle of the city, we recommend lunch at the Halle aux Grains and the restaurant at the Bourse de Commerce – Fondation Pinault, the new cultural institution in the heart of Paris. They can enjoy an exclusive view of Les Halles and the Pompidou Centre. Beyond the restaurants, you can continue your gastronomic adventures by participating in workshops tailored for families or corporate groups. This is an experience they can combine with a shopping trip. In fact, cookery lessons are available at Maison Ferrandi, the prestigious school of gastronomy based at Galeries Lafayette Maison & Gourmet, an establishment dedicated to the arts of the table and French art de vivre. After the course, it's time for a tasting!
