Against the backdrop of the trees and booksellers on the banks of the Seine, the magnificent building of the Monnaie de Paris (1777) houses not only the oldest active factory in the world (coinage began in 864!), but also one of the best restaurants on the planet.
The great French chef Guy Savoy, awarded three Michelin stars since 2002, transferred his exceptional restaurant to the institution’s reception rooms in 2015. It was redecorated by architect Jean-Michel Wilmotte.
With slate grey woodwork and shimmering contemporary works of art, the atmosphere is hushed, elegant and yet in no way ostentatious. A glimpse of French flair, which can be found on the table, with its fine cuisine where precision meets with delicacy.
The best products, prepared artfully, reveal the most intense flavours, through infinitely sophisticated but never excessive combinations, such as the chef’s signature dish, artichoke soup with black truffle, a truly mesmerizing combination.
