Most hotels have a cafe. But for Cheval Blanc Paris – LVMH’s a short while ago opened, 5-star resort in their household city – 1 wasn’t sufficient. Nor two, or three. 4 turned out to be their best range.
Inside the hotel’s historic Belle Epoque creating overlooking the Seine is a totally-fledged culinary wonderland. There is Limbar, the all-working day bakery and café on the floor ground, which offers ham croissants, cheese soufflé tarts, crispy rice pudding and other delectable pastries from patissier Maxime Frédéric. Occur night, it turns into a cocktail lounge helmed by head bartender Florian Thireau.
A single ground up is 3-Michelin-starred chef Arnaud Donckele’s Plénitude. Overlooking the Pont Neuf, it showcases “the greatest France has to offer”, says Christian Boyens, Head of Functions at Cheval Blanc Paris. (A person dish, for illustration? Broth n° 61 Songe D’une Nuit D’été – an appetiser with grilled sardines, onions, fennel, sweated celery, steamed Roma tomato, ginger and lemongrass infusion, star anise, tarragon, pastis and chardonnay reduction, yuzu juice, contemporary fennel essence, and lemon peel olive oil, topped off with Melegueta pepper.) Its interiors are finished by famed architect Peter Marino.
