Spectacular, extraordinary, incredible. So many adjectives to describe these 5 Parisian terraces we dream of going to after confinement. After months without being able to enjoy the terraces, Paris plans to open them again (as soon as possible!).
Here is our selection of the five most beautiful terraces in Paris.
At the heart of the Cité de l'Architecture, Girafe offers a breathtaking view of the Eiffel Tower. This restaurant has a luxurious decoration thanks to the talent of the French decorator Joseph Dirand. A 1930s-style atmosphere in a cozy decor, bringing together cream benches, a marble bar and tropical plants. On the plate, chef Benoît Dargère relies on quality products, with seafood cuisine: ceviche, sole, turbot or even lobster pasta in tomato sauce ...
The Opéra Garnier is finally getting the festive table it deserves with Coco. An exceptional and spectacular decor by interior designer Corinne Sachot, supported by plant designer Thierry Boutemy, who has integrated lush vegetation into the heart of the old stones of the Opera Garnier. We are transported to the universe of the Roaring Twenties, in the footsteps of the Magnificent Gatsby in Paris. The green terrace and the group of musicians, who reinterpret the greatest classics, take us away from the excitement of the city. In the kitchen, chef Julien Chicoisne focuses on simplicity: sea bream tartare, creamy lobster linguine, free-range poultry or even Mediterranean sea bass ...
The restaurant at the Musée des Arts Décoratifs enjoys a unique location and a privileged setting in the heart of the Louvre Palace. Its terrace is in the heart of the Tuileries Garden where you can admire the most beautiful Parisian monuments: the Eiffel Tower, the Orsay museum, the Louvre, its gardens and its Pyramid. Its decor is by Joseph Dirand, with a unique universe that is built in a natural mix between the culture of beauty and aesthetics, a sense of hospitality and that of authenticity. A la carte, classics focused on sunny cuisine, simple and expressive: pizza with black truffle, Apulian burrata, or even eggplant alla parmigiana ...
The new trendy rooftop on the Champs Elysées, decorated by Eve Romberg and Charlotte Besson-Oberlin and inspired by Asia, combines chic and refinement with velvet armchairs, floral fabrics, warm rugs and subdued lights. Its green terrace offers us a spectacular panorama of the capital with a breathtaking view of the Arc de Triomphe, the Eiffel Tower and the Sacré Coeur. A place that transports us outside of Paris.
At table ? The chefs Julien Chicoisne and Roland Pose offer refined and Asian cuisine, and for a little sweet break, gourmet pastries made by Yann Couvreur.
Perruche is the new rooftop restaurant on the roof of Printemps de l'Homme with a breathtaking view of the capital. The interior design duo Toro & Liautard immerses us in a soft and harmonious decor with marble, light wood and terracotta. The terrace is nicely decorated with many exotic plants. On the menu side, we focus on sharing with gourmet dishes: sea bream ceviche with cucumbers, grilled octopus, black tiger seared or saffron risotto.
And you ? Which place are you eager to discover?
