News for Restaurants in Paris
Guy Savoy has opened L'Huîtrade, his restaurant near the Arc de Triomphe. Boasting an “industrial chic” setting in pearl gray shades, the spot is dedicated to oysters and notably the items from five famous farmers: Yvon Madec, David Hervé, Joël Dupuch, the Gillardeau company, and Florie and Florent Tarbouriech. Oysters are served plain or prepared beforehand according to one of Savoy’s special recipes. A dessert complements the menu --- a puff brioche with crystallized fruits and vanilla ice cream. Oyster baskets are sold to take-away, priced from €22 to €42. This opening precedes the moving of the flagship restaurant of Savoy, still installed at 18, rue Troyon, to the Hotel de la Monnaie in 2015. Lunch & Dinner Tues.-Sat. L'Huîtrade, 13, rue Troyon, 75017 Paris, 01 44 09 95 85.

Chef Christophe Moret will leave Restaurant Lasserre to become the new executive chef of the Shangri-La Hotel, Paris, in January 2015. He will then oversee the kitchens of three establishments: L’Abeille, Shang Palace and La Bauhinia. Philippe Labbé, who held that job until last September, has been temporarily replaced by his former lieutenant, Olivier Pistre. The name of the successor of Moret at Restaurant Lasserre remains to be divulged, but Labbé and Eric Briffard, former chef at Four Seasons Hotel George V Paris, stand out as candidates.
