Le Carre Des Feuillants Restaurant In Paris

Le Carre Des Feuillants is owned by the famous chef Alain Dutournier, who turned the 17th century convent into a prestigious haute cuisine restaurant, where it was not just simply renovated but completely rebuilt and it became an overnight success.

The designer Alberto Bali conceived this space, which is artfully simple and minimalist, where there are four dining rooms in tones of off-white, black and beige, which can be modified into private dining areas and they overlook an interior courtyard full of flowers and a glass enclosed kitchen.

Le Carre Des Feuillants Restaurant In Paris

There is also a multifunctional space in the historical wine cellars and the kitchen has been redesigned with modernity and originality, so as to be in harmony with this contemporary dining experience.

Le Carre des Feuillants is a sophisticated and elegant restaurant in Paris that also has two Michelin stars and is located in the 1st arrondissement very close to the fashionable Place Vendome and is also close to the Tuileries Gardens by The Louvre museum.

Now when it comes to Alain Dutournier, he is an outstanding Paris chef, but he originated from the Pyrenees and from an early age learnt to appreciate the fresh products available from the ocean and the forest and the rich, sought after delicacies that his mother and grandmother prepared at their family home in the South Adour.

So with his countryside roots from the Southwest of France, he brings to the table some of the finest ingredients available in an innovative, yet sophisticated cuisine that is so well presented, you will just want to go back for more.  But as with many top chefs in Paris, he doesn't just run the Carre des Feuillants, but also Pinxo, which again is another very innovative yet entirely different dining experience.

Alain Detournier is also very passionate about wine and was brought up making his own wine, which he still does to this day, and the wine cellars at the Carre des Feuillants show his passion, with the cellar holding around 3,000 different references, including fine vintages from great producers and the best from some of the best French wine regions, along with oddities and emerging vineyards, plus they also have rare spirits on offer as well.

But getting back to the cuisine, you will be able to experience delights such as wild prawns with cantaloup chutney and gaspacho flavoured with saffron, roasted wild turbot with arborio rice and asparagus tips, grilled wood pigeon with chutney and polenta, roasted sweetbreads of veal in an oyster sauce, macaronis with mushrooms, sugar beans and old cured ham, lobster and peas with lobster stock and almond plus the claw with artichoke, grilled monkfish with crispy potatoes and French caviar, farm bred quail cooked in cocotte with mushrooms, thick chunks of John Dory in a shredded potato crust, and much, much more to excite those taste buds.

They also knead and bake their own bread daily, which is made from savoury flour from a traditional mill and they serve a great selection of desserts such as wild strawberries, rose macarron and litchis in jelly but the desserts have to be ordered at the start of your meal with your starter.

Restaurant Guide Key Points

Le Carre des Feuillants is open on a Monday to Friday, but is closed on a Saturday and Sunday.

If you like fine food then it is worth every penny when you experience the seasonal tasting menu, which is a nine-course journey of exquisite flavours that is around 165€ per person not including drinks, but this has to be served for the whole table.

There is also a seasonal set lunch menu that is approximately 65€ without drinks and is a three course meal with a choice of three different starters, three different main courses and either cheese or dessert

However, there is also the standard A la Carte menu and to give you a rough idea, the average cost of a main course is 125€.

Reservations are required and the dress code is smart, dressy, and you would not want to turn up in casual attire, especially for an evening but even if your French is not very good, you will be pleased to know that there are English speaking staff.

The nearest Metro stations are the Concorde on lines 1, 8, 12, the Op?ra on lines 3, 7, 8 and the Tuileries on line 1.
