Michel Rostang Haute Cuisine Restaurant

Michel Rostang was born to a family of chefs and followed the tradition with his schooling and then working in some of the famous restaurants in Paris before opening his own restaurant in 1978.

Over the course of the next twenty years he became a very well recognised and admired chef, being awarded Michelin stars and he established some other restaurants and bistros in Paris such as L'Absinthe, which is now run by his daughter Caroline Rostang.

Michel Rostang Haute Cuisine Restaurant

And although Michel Rostang is a Michelin starred haute cuisine restaurant, it still manages to maintain a warm, friendly and family style atmosphere, which is probably due to the fact that Marie Claude and Michel Rostang are great collectors of fine art and they have built up a collection that they put on display in their different restaurants to enhance the atmosphere.

This restaurant has been divided up into different themed dining rooms and the Contemporary Arts Dining Room is the main room of the restaurant where violin sculptures meet vibrant mosaics with a contemporary atmosphere and seats up to 35 people.

The Robj Dining Room is dedicated to Robj's ceramics with a huge bookcase in the middle of the room that is full of porcelain figurines from the start of the 1900's.  This particular dining room only seats up to 20 people, but also adjoins the kitchen and has a picture window so that you can see the action in the kitchen, which give the feel a very contrasting and different atmosphere from both intimacy and a collectors room through to the bustle of a fully working and hectic kitchen.

There are also two private dining rooms as well, that both have different atmospheres by being decorated with art and objects to provide an entirely different feel, like the Art Nouveau Dining Room has a glass ceiling.

Located in the 17th arrondissement of Paris, this elegant restaurant is tucked away on a street not far from the Arc de Triomphe, so it is not one of the easiest places to find, but once here you will not be disappointed.

With all its luxury and sophistication yet with an almost cosy, relaxed and home style of welcoming you will get a phenomenal dining experience both from the surroundings and the staff, through to the exquisite cuisine expertly presented with top quality ingredients and complex dishes.

Talking of the fine food, you will be able to experience seasonal delicacies such as truffles or game and just some of the dishes on offer at this gourmet Paris restaurant include quenelles of whitefish with a lobster sauce, gratin of onions of Cevennes with white truffle, quail eggs with sea urchins, Bresse chicken with mushroom pur?e and lamb Proven?ale, etc.

Now when it comes to having a glass of wine, there is a very impressive wine cellar that has over 1300 references from all over the world, although there are plenty of references from the French wine regions and all these have been found by Michel Rosting and Alain Ronzatti who has been the sommelier for over twenty years.

Although there is handicapped access via a side entrance which has been made accessible to those in wheelchairs, the lower level bathrooms are harder to negotiate for wheelchair bound diners, as to get to the toilets you actually go past the incredible wine cellar, where they have some of their fine wines on display and if you are lucky enough, you may even be able to have a tour of the wine cellars.

Restaurant Guide Key Points

Michel Rostang is open on weekdays for evening meals and is open for lunch on a Tuesday through to Friday, however, they are closed on a Saturday and Sunday plus are closed at lunchtime on a Monday.

As well as the A la Carte menu, you can also have tasting menus, which are called The Menu de Saison at 185€ and Le Menu Asperges et Crustaces at a cost of 285€, not including drinks.

There is a lunchtime menu known as a 'Business Menu', which is a three course meal served from noon until 2.30pm and is a cost of 78€ without drinks.  You have a choice from five starters, five main courses and five desserts and this particular menu has been designed for people with time restraints and a budget.

The dress code is smart but more leaning towards business / formal attire and although there is no age limit, it is more a place to celebrate a special occasion such as an anniversary and is great for a romantic evening.

Reservations are required and the languages spoken by the staff are of course French, but also English and Spanish, plus they do have menus in Japanese as well.

There is a car valet service, but if you do not have this luxury, then the nearest Metro station is Ternes on Line 2.
