After four years of restoration work, the Hôtel de la Marine, an emblematic monument on the Place de la Concorde, has been restored to its former glory and invites you to a place that symbolises French heritage and the French Art de Vivre.
Café Lapérouse, a new trendy address in the heart of Paris
And in the main courtyard, it is the Café Lapérouse that opens the ball while waiting for the unveiling of Jean-François Piège's Mimosa restaurant in September 2021. Its two tree-lined terraces under the arcades allow for a break in the shade of the summer sun, the Orient lounge is decorated with Baccarat crystal chandeliers, precious mahogany woodwork and Cordoba leather, and the famous navigator's lounge is decorated in different shades of blue, from deep to azure. The seashell bar was created by artist Thomas Boog and designer Fleur de Galard designed the wall lamps in collaboration with l'atelier Jean Roger. Velvet armchairs, poetic wall fresco, XXL bamboo suspension, striped marquee… the decor alone is worth a visit!
The menu offers a range of boiled eggs (chives and salted butter, polenta fries with parmesan, truffles, bottarga… ) and croque-monsieur (smoked pastrami, old cheddar, gherkins, coleslaw or beechwood smoked salmon, fresh cheese with herbs) but also great street-food classics such as the lobster-roll with mango and passion fruit sauce or a smash-burger made following the rules of gastronomic know-how.
In September, Café Lapérouse will open a cellar, a delicatessen, a chocolate shop and an ice cream parlour. Enough to make your mouth water!
