Openings

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.

“The Five from Jay McInerney” at Taillevent
Taillevent serves a special menu at €445 until January 15, entitled “The Five from Jay McInerney.” McInerney is famous both for his novels and for writing about wines in the Wall Street Journal. For Taillevent, he has chosen five wines that he would like to drink in the course of one meal. Further to that selection, chef Alain Solivérès has determined the right pairings. Thus, the Condrieu La Combe de Malleval 2010 is matched with scallops, oyster and watercress; Sauternes Château de Fargues 1997 with pheasant in puff pastry; Gevrey-Chambertin Domaine Denis Mortet 2002 with partridge; Pessac Léognan Château Haut-Brion 1988 with venison and grand veneur sauce; and pink Champagne Domaine Jacques Selosse with nougat and raspberry. Taillevent, 15, rue Lamennais, 75008 Paris, 01 44 95 15 01.
 
Original Pastries at Terroir Parisien
Chef Yannick Alléno’s Terroir Parisien has a new offer: Café en Capitale features a coffee and a pastry for €12. The latter takes its originality from its shape, as it evokes a Parisian hallmark. A new cake will be proposed each month. For December, the Opera Bastille made with biscuit, cream and chocolate and the Grand Palais log are delivered. In January, expect the Notre Dame galette. Terroir Parisien, 20, rue Saint-Victor, 75005 Paris, 01 44 31 54 54.
