Lapérouse is one of the first restaurants to have won a 3 star rating, which it retained until 1969. Great expectations had to be met, and today a new gastronomic page has turned. Chef Jean-Pierre Vigato; renowned for his masterful cooking, his vast “gastronomique” culture, his love of the French way of life/joie de vivre and his dazzling presence. With the help of his devoted team, Apicius’ former chef has brought back the gastronomic heart of 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 conceived a menu which honours the restaurant’s history combined with the classical service of the old days.” Jean-Pierre Vigato

New signature dishes are becoming classics. Creamy lemon potatoes from Noirmoutier and Lapérouse caviar. Sea bass and langoustines, with olive oil and aromatic herbs. Pigeon, with peas and sauce de diable. Roasted blue lobster, in all its splendour.

For desert, another talent, no less aesthete and passionate : Christophe Michalak. Here, the chef-patissier, winner of the Patisserie World Cup, is paving the way for a new adventure, drawing from the location’s history and proposing a crossover between legendary pastries and traditional treats, such as the Profiteroles or the Lapérouse vacherin, a meringue and ice cream pastry.

“I’m going to enjoy recreating the traditional, emblematic, gargantuan and luscious deserts, with a modern vision that revisits the institution’s heritage.” Christophe Michalak

This new gastronomic age also opens one of Paris’ most secret wine cellars, which for the first time will be made available for all pallets to savour. This same cave was spared by the great floods of 1910. At the end of a labyrinth of stairs lies a treasure of great wines, with over 800 references from all the different regions of France, classified from north to south in a clockwise direction, by village, premier cru and vintage.

Burgundy is the most represented, with 7000 bottles, forming one of the richest Burgundy wine cellars in France. Coiled in stone walls, unbeknownst to most, lay two hidden salons : where Veuve Clicquot overlooks the chefs special table offering an exclusive menu along with grand vintages from the Moët & Chandon house, and the Salon d’Hôte for innovative oenological experiences.
