Brasserie Emil at Château Voltaire

Undoubtedly one of the sceniest new places to dine in town and set to be the hangout of choice for the style set.

Located between the Paris Opera and the Tuileries Garden, the 33-room stylish bolthole was designed by Franck Durand and the architects Charlotte de Tonnac and Hugo Sauzay of Festen, and conceived by the visionary founder behind fashion house Zadig & Voltaire, Thierry Gillier. The five-story hotel is both modern and a old-school in feel, with its high-end materials and artful craftsmanship - an ode to Parisian elegance and understated luxury - very evident in the hotel's brasserie.

Expect an elegant metro-themed décor with white tiles and charming Parisian furnishings creating a chic tavern setting for Mediterranean dishes and plates of classic French brasserie favourites - such as sea bass carpaccio and beef tartare with mayonnaise and roasted sea bass and beurre blanc. There's also a decadent bar with a similar vibe to that of Château Marmont and London's Chiltern Firehouse.
