Chez Andre: a traditional french brasserie in Paris

Just steps away from Place de l’Etoile and the most beautiful avenue in the world, Chez André, in the heart of what’s known as the “Golden Triangle”, is where business, luxury, fashion and the press all meet.

It was opened in 1936 and has kept the same feel it had back then. The zinc bar and the bistro tables bring to mind the 1930s.

As far as the menu goes, the dishes we know so well have been updated to yield a high-class yet traditional and refined cuisine. They offer a selection of wines served by the glass.

La Maison Blanche

Maison Blanche is on the rooftop of the Théâtre des Champs Elysées since 25 years at 15 avenue Montaigne overlooking Paris, offering a stunning view on the Eiffel Tower, Invalides, and Seine.

An invitation to Light in a place made to relish in it, this is the magic of the décor revisited by Imaad Rahmouni, one of Philippe Starck’s former associate in 2001.

The space offers a vast array of ambiences.  Depending on the visitor’s mood, one can take refuge in a cosy silk booth or sit amidst the larger tables for a better feel of sensations, scents and views.

Maison Blanche features two levels.  First, the “Baie Vitrée” room, evolving along a huge bay window overviewing the City of Lights… where impressively high ceilings give a consequential sense of verticality.

 Second, the Mezzanine : room follows a smooth rounded curve and boasts larger views of Western Paris, while surprising with its crystal color-changing bar and flourishing garden Terrace…  to the shimmer of the ever so mesmerizing Eiffel Tower.
Maison Blanche is a place to see and be seen,  at the crossroads of fashion, business and entertainment, it is the place to see and be seen !g-20-06

La Societe

La Societe is one of those Parisian restaurants that are born with the concept of being concerned with not only providing a good cuisine, but also about staying in fashion and providing a luxurious dinner.
The place is elegant and beatifully set, with tables full of candles and background music Sinatra type …

L’Avenue is one of those places that you will have a special fondness in the French capital and not by the fame he had in the last decade and that keeps these days. This restaurant is located in one Paris’ main streets, Avenue Montagne, two steps from the Hotel Plaza Athenee, also recommending a stop at Le Bar du Plaza Athenee for take a great cocktail in a lovely setting.
L’Avenue is a great place for breakfast or stop along the way while enjoying a walk in the Triangle d’Or Parisien.

Ralph Lauren ST GermainAt Ralph’s, fashion meets gluttony. It’s Rive Gauche that come to enjoy the ultra chic setting of the mansion store of Ralph Lauren, dating from 1683. Board Side: fine cuisine in an American accent, and Sunday brunch. The best: the terrace in an interior patio.
