Le Ciel de Paris Restaurant Review

: On the 56th floor of the Montparnasse Tower, Le Ciel de Paris prides itself on being the highest restaurant in Europe. Following a year-long renovation, it boasts a futuristic décor in beige and earth tones, with a ceiling studded with round mirrors illuminated at night. Needless to say, the main attraction remains the view through the bay windows, a sweeping sight of the City of Light with its streets, buildings and landmarks appearing matchbox-size. Chef Christophe Marchais and his team create an attractive seasonal menu and utilize such ingredients as lobster, scampis, truffle and turbot. Appetizers include Burgundy snails with pig’s foot and mesclun salad and an assortment of foie gras cooked in different ways: mi-cuit, pan-seared and marbled with duck breast. Main courses range from a shelled lobster topped with Bourbon vanilla emulsion and sided by a black rice risotto to a beef filet in a truffle sauce with potatoes. For dessert, try the chocolate cake or the Saint-Honoré made with puff pastry, Chantilly cream and red berries. The wine cellar is well-endowed with great picks like Mouton Rothschild and Cheval Blanc. But if you’re in a mood for just a drink, stop at the Champagne bar past the entrance.
