Restaurant Lasserre Restaurant Review

:
About the restaurant: Restaurant Lasserre is a bastion of French gastronomy. The visionary René Lasserre purchased and transformed this space near the Champs-Élysées after the close of the 1937 Paris International Exposition. With its essence of romance, and a ceiling that on clear and balmy nights would open up on the star-studded sky of Paris, this sumptuous mansion became a magnet for the glitterati. The two-story establishment seats 70, with a dining room upstairs and private rooms below. Many illustrious chefs started their apprenticeships here, including Marc Haeberlin, Guy Savoy, Michel Rostang and Jacques Lameloise.

About the food: Chef Nicolas Le Tirrand creates French cuisine with a lighter focus and an emphasis on vegetables. Guests may encounter macaroni gratin with artichoke and black truffles, slow-poached white turbot, pan-roasted chicken with smoked glazed turnips, and crêpes Suzette flamed tableside.

About the wine: The wine cellar, besides housing the grand crus de rigueur, welcomes less prestigious but worthwhile vintages from the Rhône Valley, the Loire Valley, and from the up-and-coming area of Languedoc. If you consider yourself an über foodie, you can't pass up a visit.
