Mama Shelter Restaurant Review

: Past the main entrance at this establishment, a huge “table d’hôte” (a community shared table) inlaid with video screens faces a large refrigerated case filled with salty and sweet snacks that are available 24/7. The next room is a brasserie furnished with sofas, seats of all sizes and low tables leading guests to a very chic bar, amazingly decorated with other “tables d’hôte” and painted armchairs. The ceilings are low, but this feature contributes to the general atmosphere. From the terrace one can glance at the old railroad tracks evocative of Marcel Carné’s pictures. More than a hotel restaurant, this is the kind of place where one can share a moment of hospitality and tranquility with other guests. Super chef Alain Senderens is in charge of the restaurant and of the room service. One can warm up the great chef’s cuisine in a microwave with which each bedroom’s kitchenette is equipped. For a simple lunch at the bar, a Nordic platter of home-smoked pollock and salmon comes with toasts and wasabi cream. On the short menu, try the sautéed lamb with a glass of Bordeaux’s Haut-Medoc Château La Marque. A different cheese is offered every day, such as a very mellow Saint Nectaire with raw sliced champignons. For dessert, we recommend the chocolate tart. This unusual hotel and its restaurant with a totally original, modern and glamorous decoration is the best realization of Philippe Stark to date. À la carte €30-€40.
