Ledoyen Restaurant Review: JUNE 27, 2014, WAS CHRISTIAN LE SQUER’S LAST DAY. CHEF YANNICK ALLÉNO HAS TAKEN OVER. A stone's throw from the Champs-Elysées, this Second Empire pavilion enjoys two stories and a sumptuous décor with woodwork, ancient paintings and caryatids. Yannick Alléno, formerly at Le Meurice, has taken over the stoves and replaced chef Christian Le Squer. Alléno’s cuisine focuses on topnotch ingredients, with a taste in showcasing elaborated sauces. Menu items include red wine-poached foie gras with dates and caramelized sesame, langoustines with a nage perfumed with Meursault, Bresse poultry dumplings with lobster coulis and, for dessert, wild strawberries accompanied with waffles. Lunch menu for €128.
