Star chef Amandine Chaignot has opened a restaurant, aptly named Pouliche (‘filly’ in French) in the 10th arrondissement, once the location of the King’s royal stables. The former protégée of Alain Ducasse and Jean-François Piège has concocted an exciting menu that is generous and authentic, accompanied by delicious cocktails.
Following London and Dubai, Coya has opened a branch in Beaupassage, a well-known venue known for Paris’ finest cuisine. The multi-sensory experience offers total immersion in Latin American culture and a journey that will delight the eyes and the taste buds, all in an electric atmosphere. Keep the journey going at the speakeasy upstairs, swaying to smooth electro sounds.
The brainchild of chefs Christophe Michalak and Steve Burggraf, Polichinelle offers organic, healthy and delicious vegetarian cuisine at a self-serve buffet in the Beaugrenelle neighbourhood. The flavourful produce comes from regional growers and the urban vegetable garden on the restaurant’s rooftop.
After several years at the helm of the Hôtel Prince de Galles’ restaurant, two-Michelin-starred chef Stéphanie Le Quellec has opened her first Parisian restaurant, in the Golden Triangle. The menu at La Scène (The Stage) offers an inventive and generous selection in several “acts”, and you can enjoy watching your food being prepared in the open kitchen — better than being at the theatre!
Victor Mercier, 2018 finalist in the popular Top Chef cooking programme, has opened his first restaurant in the lively 11th arrondissement. With a modern, open design, FIEF — Fait Ici En France (Made Here in France) offers all-French seasonal cuisine, with a pared-back decor bathed in soft light. You’ll feel right at home!

The set menu is prepared by resident chefs using fresh, locally sourced produce, and the aim is to provide reasonably priced dishes while avoiding food waste.
