There isn’t a restaurant as exclusive as Laperouse Paris. This is the first place to ever earn three Michelin stars, all the way back in 1969. This is a hotspot in the Parisian town. It’s a historic destination, chic and antique. It’s a restaurant filled with heritage and roots.
The historic and traditional French restaurant
There is one thing that Laperouse Paris doesn’t lack: history. It all started in 1766, with an ambitious family. The founder was Lefèvre as a place to trade, wine and serve them both with high-quality dishes and snacks.
One century later, Jules Lapérouse took over to turn this place into a luxury restaurant. It catered to the elite of the city, the people with great taste and elegant fashion. The idea succeeded and people such as Victor Hugo, Emile Zola, Charles Baudelaire sat at the restaurant’s tables.
That’s how and when Laperouse Paris was born and it finally bloomed. This chic place survived through French revolutions, World Wars, and rumors of secret affairs in its tiny and private rooms. Centuries later, this is still the luxury spot in town.
The cuisine at Laperouse Paris
Chef Jean-Pierre Vigato created a menu around French gastronomy. The signature dishes of this restaurant include the Charlotte of Noirmoutier potatoes with caviar. More of these signature dishes are: the branzino with prawns with aromatic herbs and the soft pigeon. You can try something different and special with the blue lobster, as luxurious as the restaurant itself. The two classic dishes on the menu are the beef Wellington (a platter to share) and the Charlotte.
Still in the mood for caviar? How about spaghetti with it? Or perhaps you want something different. You might want to try the Croque-Royal with vegetables and seasonal herbs. For a typical taste of France, you can’t miss the fromage plate, the cheese dish with raisins.
