Le Salon des Manufactures – Alain Ducasse

This brand-new restaurant with an exceptional price-quality ratio can be found in the midst of the beautiful Palais Royal district, located a kilometer away from the Relais du Louvre.

The restaurant is on the second floor of 3-star chef Alain Ducasse’s chocolaterie. You have to go inside and up the stairs to be seated in a cosy, neo-romantic decorated room.

3 gorgeous, 18th century Venetian chandeliers as well as Alain Ducasse’s prestigious 19th and 20th century porcelain and goldsmith collection are to be admired every step of the way.

The building is located across from French writer Colette’s old house.

Alessandro Lucassino is the restaurant’s chef. He has been working as a sous-chef at 3-star the Plaza Athénée restaurant alongside Alain Ducasse since 2018. His menu has been tested, retested, critiqued, and enriched by Alain Ducasse and their team.

The table setting is pleasant, with paper napkins and antiquated silverware. The tableware follows the romantic theme.

The menu is short and reasonably-prices: €12-€13 for an entrée, €15-€18 for a dish, and €10-€15 for a dessert.

Cucumber and mint yoghurt. Mint virgin oil with shallots, roasted black olives, verbena and basil infusion – €12
Lentil virgin oil, cauliflower powder, coral humus, sumac, lemon Caviar – €13
Sea bream cevich eand Leche de Tigre, avocado, basil infusion, served with a Granny Smith apple sorbet – €15
Grilled eggplant, black garlic, and pomegranate served with a pomegranate and mint sorbet – €15

Everything we tasted was perfectly made, a refined, well-balanced mix of complex flavors.

We were served by Caroline, who was as quick and attentive as she was kind and cultured, which is quite a rare mix of qualities these days.

This is, without a doubt, a restaurant that must not be looked over.

Bon appétit!
