Located now at the Monnaie de Paris, this newly opened and already celebrated restaurant serves contemporary haute cuisine in a just redone - though historical space - overlooking the Seine on the Quai Conti. The Monnaie de Paris is the oldest French institution and was founded in 864 under the reign of Charles II. It offers, now, in this newest incarnation, spectacular views overlooking the Seine. The interior design has notes of the theatrical, with tables placed just so, to capture the natural lighting. Salmon, flown in direct from Scotland, is served on its bed of ice at table, seasoned before your eyes with a triad of citrus before gingerly being sprayed with a consomm� of citrus.
Monnaie de Paris
- French Traditional, Fine Dining: "If the exquisite meal here has left you sated, and you absolutely must pass up the signature house brioche, don't fret. Just down the street, Team Guy Savoy has opened up a Brioche Takeaway so now you purchase this lovely, doughy (sweet and savory) goodness to bring with you."
- Best for French Traditional Because: The layout of this restaurant is such that each dining alcove affords delectable semi-privacy.
- Best for Fine Dining Because: This is a talented chef of world-repute who is confident enough to allow his protegés expression of their creative talents in his kitchen, too.
