Each floor has its speciality. Our outstanding and Michelin starred chef Jean-Pierre Vigato has conceived the menu for the new Lapérouse : “What convinced me ? This setting is unique, magical, mythical. And like all places that are unique, magical and mythical… there is a constant challenge. We have decided to conceive a menu, which honours the restaurants history with a true classic service like in the old days.”
The deserts are creations of the renowned pastry chef Christophe Michalak : “I’m going to enjoy recreating the traditional, emblematic, gargantuan and luscious deserts, with a modern vision that revisits the institution’s heritage.”
The artistic direction is signed Cordelia de Castellane : “Such a Parisian setting, so elegant where literary romances hide. The walls breath French sensuality as well as a Proustian heritage.”
A historic establishment founded in 1766 by Monsieur Lefèvre, the King’s limonadier, who turns it into a wine merchant, which quickly becomes a prestigious Parisian wine cellar specialised in wines from Burgundy. Baptised “Lapérouse” by Jules Lapérouse in 1840, it becomes over time the theatre of French high cuisine. It is one of the very first restaurants to acquire 3 Michelin stars in 1933 up until 1969.
Just about everyone has dined their. From a historic location, it has grown to become one that is legendary, notably with its characteristic atmosphere of a private hotel, offering considerable confidentiality. A unique experience where “emotion” meets “intimacy”. In its golden days, it was the most fashionable venue in Paris, greeting prominent figures in art, politics and literature, from Zola, Maupassant, to Baudelaire and Proust to name only a few.
It was in Lapérouse that Colette wrote her novel “Chatte”. Other regulars were Ernest Hemingway, Orson Welles or Winston Churchill. It is also said that Serge Gainsbourg met Jane Birkin in one of our little salons. Laperouse was chosen by Woody Allen as one of the locations for his film “Midnight in Paris”, starring Owen Wilson and Rachel McAdams. It was also chosen by Michel Houellebecq for his wedding reception last year.
Situated in the midst of the Place St Michel and the Pont Neuf, Lapérouse offers more than 700 m2 of reception space, where comfort and the art of receiving are honoured in the purest tradition of Parisian excellence.
