How is it? Want to discover the new Ledoyen Pavilion without necessarily going through an extended tasting menu?
We head for Pavyllon, the latest addition to the maestro and cool and urban little sister of the restaurant Alléno Paris and the Abysse, his double-star peers in the legendary building nestled in the gardens of the Champs-Elysées.
It is reached on the ground floor by an independent entrance, before discovering this long place thought out by the talented Chahan Minassian, interior designer who notably worked on the revival of the Crillon hotel.
A nerve center, its impressive 15-meter-long counter lets you see the chef's ballet and his kitchen teams. A graceful and perfectly orchestrated choreography which contributes to giving back to the place all its Parisian effervescence.
What do we order there? We take with delight from the chef's list of hot or cold suggestions, to mix and alternate according to mood and season.
A cornelian menu that will certainly appeal to seafood lovers, struggling to choose between sea urchin coral with anise seeds and dill, raw scallops as desired, succulent langoustines in melted butter with ginger or shellfish soup with coconut bacon and cuttlefish white.
To be linked with the pasta to die for (Savoyard gnocchi with pike eggs, tagliatelle gluten free with caviar, ultimate snobbery) or one of the plant options, ideal for a detox at the start of the year.
