Named Café Lapérouse, it’s located within the Hôtel de la Marine, the extensively renovated iconic building. Built in the 18th century by Ange-Jacques Gabriel, chief architect of King Louis XV, on the Place de la Concorde - it is among the grandest neoclassical buildings in Paris and was previously home to the Naval Ministry.
Designed by Cordelia de Castellane - artistic director of Dior Maison - the restaurant has a suitably nautical (and decidedly opulent) theme combining elements of the original restaurant - famed for its boudoir-like rooms and a seafaring spirit - with touches of exotica such a stunning wallpaper mural of tropical fauna and a bar entirely adorned with shells. The terraces features lush foliage and topiary trees for a more tropical atmosphere. On the menu? macaroni crab and cheese, a wagyu beef burger and a Croque-Lapérouse with truffle.
