The Hôtel de la Marine, built in the 18th century by Ange-Jacques Gabriel, is one of those exceptional places enjoying a history of great wealth. After surviving the revolution, seeing the Obelisk stand on the Place de la Concorde and celebrating the liberation of Paris, the monument was restored over the course of several years before finally being able to reopen its doors.
In the main courtyard, opposite the Café Lapérouse, the Mimosa restaurant, housed in the former stables, welcomes you as a serene hideaway from the noise of the city. Boasting classic architecture, with a high ceiling and huge bay windows, the setting is bright and very beautiful. Like the historic site, Mimosa encompasses the best of French know-how!
Beauty, quality and authenticity!
The décor was entrusted to the architect and decorator Dorothée Delaye who combines old and modern in this 450 m² space. Chic materials such as marble and velvet blend elegantly with terracotta, blue and green, reminiscent of the South. Set sail for the French Riviera and let the good life take over your plates!
Who better than Jean-François Piège to promote French gastronomy and his expertise? On your plate, he combines nature, pleasure and sun and offers a menu that is an ode to quality products and freshness. Specialities from the Italian Riviera passing through Nice, for dishes toggling between land and sea rendering a sublime experience featuring products such as blue lobster from Brittany, veal paillard and rock octopus. On the vegetable side, the chef relies on quality products hailing from the Paris Region which he tosses in the wood fire with olive oil to create a wonder for your taste buds.
What really stands out is his mimosa egg bar, symbol of Mediterranean cuisine from the heart, and honoured with 6 variations, like a tapas bar. Simple and elegant cuisine!
Whether on the terrace or inside, enjoy lunch or dinner at the table of an exceptional restaurant!
