Senderens Bistro Restaurant In Paris

Lucas Carton was a very traditional gourmet French restaurant in Paris that was run by the renowned chef Alain Senderens and was rated three stars within the Michelin guide.

However, Alain Senderens wanted to do something different and gave up his three stars for the Lucas Carton restaurant and decided to create an entirely new restaurant concept which was much more informal, yet still with the same great quality of food for its patrons.

Senderens Bistro Restaurant In Paris

So in 2005, even though in the same building as the original Lucas Carton, he changed the interior decor, getting rid of the fine china and silverware for a more contemporary bistro style and revamped the menu and style of cuisine.  Alain named the restaurant Senderens after his own name and came up with creations that would only set someone back around 100€ instead of the 300€ plus, as it would have been.

Senderens bistro is situated in the 8th arrondissement of Paris located on the famous Place de la Madeleine and is definitely a place to go if you are looking for more of a contemporary style of French cuisine but with a renowned chef that still provides the quality you would expect and has already gained a two star Michelin award.

The menu offers new twists on classic French cuisine, with an Asian influence but some of the dishes available include roasted duck with honey and spices, lobster from Brittany and mango salad, veal and langoustine tartar, crab and avocado puree, tempura shrimp with carrot and zucchini, duck with beetroot and wasabi, foie gras with pumpkin puree, smoked Scottish salmon with cucumber and Thai spices, roasted scallops, etc.

You will find that on each course listed on the Senderens menu, there is a wine, which is paired with it as a recommendation, so that it will complement the dish you are choosing, which is also available by the glass.

There is a bar upstairs that is accessed either from the restaurant or if not dining, then can be accessed separately via the Passage de la Madeleine and serves light snacks such as tapas, to go with Spanish wine, or Sushi and Sashimi 'Senderens' style, accompanied by sake.

Although the disabled can access the main dining room of this now contemporary restaurant in Paris, unfortunately the rest rooms are upstairs and can only be accessed via a spiral staircase.

Restaurant Guide Key Points

Senderens is open every day of the week from noon to 2.45pm (last orders) and from 7.30pm to 11.15pm (last orders).

The upstairs Bar opens from noon to 2.45 and from 7pm through 11.45, which is accessible through the Passage de la Madeleine.

There is a Menu du Jour at 36€, which is available at lunchtime and includes an Amuse-Bouche (appetiser), Entrée (starter), Plat (main course) and a dessert.

There is a Tasting Menu that is 150€ including wine or 110€ without drinks, but this is only served during the first evening service, as they have more than one sitting, plus of course an A la Carte option.

In complete contrast to the original Lucas Carton, Senderens offer wine per the glass, which ranges in price from around 8€ upwards, but they also still have a fantastic wine cellar for those of you who know exactly what bottle of wine you would like.

Reservations are required, sometimes weeks in advance and there is a valet service also available.

It is suitable for all ages and the dress code is now less formal than that of the previous Lucas Carton, where smart casual is the order of the day, although you will find that people are far dressier here of an evening.

The nearest Metro station is the Madeleine on lines 8, 12 and 14
