                                 French gastronomic food was given Unesco humanity heritage status in 2010
                                 and Paris is certainly the best place to enjoy it! The city also serves up more
                                 contemporary cuisine, inspired by the great Parisian movement le Fooding®.
                                 Amazing places continue to open and the cuisine on offer is always state-of–
                                 the-art and inventive. Dinner at a mini restaurant, trying out a unique menu,
                                 tasting the best baguette in Paris, or even taking lessons from a starred-chef,
                                 gourmets will find everything to delight them in the French capital. And what’s
                                 more, a reduction in VAT in cafes and restaurants means some lower prices.
                                 Great news for all lovers of good food!

                                  The Maison et objet trade show is organizing an event for the general public to run
                                  alongside this professional trade show. In collaboration with the magazine Omnivore,
                                  a major reference in the gastronomy sector, it aims to show the links between
                                  contemporary cooking and creation. So, duos of chefs and creators (architect, designer,
                                  artist, etc.) will take it in turn to give demonstrations and organize debates throughout
                                  the day.

                 NEW PLACES
                 > Coming soon …
                 A short selection of restaurants that will renew the capital’s already up-to-
                 the-minute culinary offer in 2011. Still a secret and with good reason, Joël
                 Robuchon, the world’s most starred chef, will be opening a new restaurant in
                 Paris. The location? At the Drugstore Publicis. Watch this space. In the course
                 of the year, the Parc de la Villette will welcome two new restaurants. One
                 of them, organic, has been designed by the architects Gilles & Boissier and
                 will overlook the vegetable garden. The other will be housed in the Rotonde
                 de Ledoux. In autumn 2011, the Opéra Garnier will have its own restaurant,
                 the Phantom Opéra, boasting a 400 m² room and and 500 m² terrace. In the
                 16th arrondissement, the Orée du Bois will be rejuvenated with the opening
                 of two restaurants planned for the end of 2011: one, Japanese, the Bouchido,
                 and the other, a traditional brasserie. The project leader is Raymond Visan, a well-known figure on the Paris
                 nightlife scene, and the architect is Jean-Michel Wilmotte. The young chef of the Châteaubriand, Inaki Aizpitarte,
                 has opened a, yet undisclosed, second address in the capital. Finally, the Monnaie de Paris will house Guy Savoy’s
                 restaurant which moves from rue Troyon to the salons of the establishment, along the Seine quayside. And it is
                 Jean-Michel Wilmotte who will design the interior.

                 In 2010, a wealth of new restaurants joined the gastronomic scene in Paris! After launching the brasserie
                 Thoumieux in collaboration with Costes, the chef Jean-François Piège opened a 20-seat dining area on the first
                 floor of the main restaurant, with the atmosphere of chic home dining. Not content with having inaugurated his
                 new flagship store in Saint-Germain-des-Prés, the American designer Ralph Lauren has been in the spotlight
                 with the shop’s restaurant Ralph, with its popular terrace. In the Buttes-Chaumont park, the Pavillon du Lac offers
                 a new place to have brunch, lunch and relax. Daniel Rose has kept fans waiting but has finally opened Spring, a
                 restaurant and fine food store-wine cellar steps from the the Louvre. At the Centquatre, the City of Paris cultural
                 establishment, the restaurant des Grandes Tables becomes another reason to visit the former municipal funeral
                 director’s converted into a cultural venue. The Mini Palais has reopened with chef Eric Fréchon at the helm. The
                 Nolita, at the Fiat Motor Village has an attractive terrace with an Italian look. Nearby, the Café Artcurial at the
                 Artcurial auction house has been revamped. The 39V, a restaurant with impressive architecture, has opened on
                 avenue George-V. And Gérard Depardieu, a leading star of French cinema, is in the news, not because of his latest
                 films but because of a restaurant whose name, Le Bien Décidé, closely echoes his strong character.

                 Up-and-coming young French chefs are gaining a reputation abroad. It is to Gilles Choukroun, chef at the new MBC
                 (mint, coriander, basil) in the 17th arrondissement, that we owe the creation of the association Générations.C (C for
                 cuisines and cultures), an association formed by chefs who insist on the transmission and sharing of knowledge.
                 They are all talented and creative like Bertrand Grébaut (restaurant Agapé), Thomas Boullaut (Arôme), Christophe
                 Pelé (Bigarrade) … The capital also draws international chefs, like Valence-born Juan Alberto Herráiz, with a
                 Michelin star (Fogón), or Daniel Rose, from Chicago, the extraordinary chef at the new version of Spring since
                 2010, or even Viveka Sandklef at Playtime, a restaurant with creative cooking that takes its name from the title of
                 Jacques Tati’s film. At the helm at Saturne is the chef Sven Chartier, ane the waiting list for bookings is already a
                 long one. Following on the success of Ze Kitchen Galerie, starred in the Michelin Guide, William Ledeuil has opened
                 a second restaurant Kitchen Galerie Bis, already acclaimed by the critics.

                 > Affordable chefs
                 Top chefs are broadening their activities and areas of operation. Some of the biggest names in French cuisine
                 have decided to launch smaller outlets with more “affordable” menus than in the parent establishments. Alain
                 Senderens gave up his three Michelin stars for a no-fuss restaurant, offering quality at prices close to 65 euros
                 per person for lunch. Pierre Gagnaire confirmed the trend with Gaya and Hélène Darroze, Guy Savoy and others
                 have followed suit. And there is Yves Camdeborde at the Comptoir du Relais at Odéon or Christian Constant who
                 serves fine bistro fare at his Café Constant, or try his restaurant concept at Les Cocottes. Tapas bars and other
                 little establishments are enjoying a roaring success.

                 IT TAKES ALL TASTES
                 > At the museum
                 As well as food for thought, museums, foundations and art spaces offer
                 quality sustenance in their restaurants. The most recent are well worth the
                 detour; at the Au Saut du Loup at the Musée des Arts Décoratifs, the cooking
                 is creative and the terrace delightful in fine weather; Les Ombres offers
                 cooking “open to the world” on the 5th floor of the Musée du Quai Branly. The
                 Mini Palais, the restaurant of the Grand Palais, reopened in 2010 with (three-
                 times Michelin-starred) chef Eric Fréchon at the helm. At the Centquatre, Les
                 Grandes Tables have opened to great acclaim. And at Le Bal, a new venue
                 devoted to documentary photography, the cafe-restaurant has become a
                 popular spot. At the Maison Rouge, the private foundation for contemporary
                 art of the collector Antoine Galbert, Rose Bakery has recently opened and
                 serves scones and other small organic snacks. Among the great classics, not to be missed is the restaurant of the
                 Musée Jacquemart-André and the cafe-restaurant in the inner courtyard of the Petit Palais, idyllic in fine weather
                 with fine views of this fine arts museum.

                 > Delicious chocolate
                 Between €80 and €120 a kilo is what it costs to taste the best chocolate in Paris. Throughout the year, and
                 particularly at festive periods, the master chocolate makers devote their expertise and artistry to satisfying
                 gourmet chocolate fans. Patrick Roger is one of the most talented. Voted best chocolate maker in his field in 2000
                 and winner of the City of Paris Grand Prix du Chocolat Artisanal in 2007, he is a top craftsman. For him, working
                 with chocolate is like creating a sculpture … in chocolate! Other great chocolate houses like Jean-Paul Hévin,
                 Patrice Chapon, Christian Constant, Pierre Marcolini, and the Maison du chocolat, provide just what it takes to
                 satisfy that little whim or great yearning. New on the scene is Paris’s new chocolate museum Choco-Story, which
                 retraces the history of cocoa and its various transformations. And the love affair with chocolate is reflected in the
                 capital’s many chocolate bars: that of Jean-Paul Hévin, rue Saint-Honoré; that of chocolatier Christophe Roussel,
                 near to the Eiffel Tower; but also the more unexpected on at the jeweller’s Mauboussin, on the Champs-Élysées.

                 CURRENT TRENDS!
                 >       Fooding® attitudes
                 Ten years ago, food journalists, Alexandre Cammas and Emmanuel Rubin,
                 created a movement that is all the rage in the capital and which has taken
                 on an international dimension. Le Fooding®. A contraction of food and
                 feeling, Le Fooding® is a concept, an art, a state of mind, a way of seeing and
                 experiencing a particular innovative type of cooking. Le Fooding® advocates
                 creative and trendy cooking full of surprises and new things. Regular events
                 are organized throughout the capital to celebrate culinary pleasures and
                 familiarize the public with this innovative approach to cooking. Firstly, there is
                 the famous Le Fooding® Week organized every year in November/December,
                 with an appetizing programme: tasting in the most fashionable restaurants
                 after registration via Internet, didactic and culinary itineraries with chefs. The
                 Grand Summer Fooding® is the major summer event of the movement. Every year, the Fooding® bureau publishes
                 a guide covering the whole of France, which include new talent and daring gourmet initiatives according to a new
                 classification: restaurants that are “so good”, “atmospheric”, “budget”, or even where you can “see and be seen”.
                 The guide is also accessible via a search engine on the website Fooding® website and now on smartphones with
                 an event application.

                 Small has plenty of charm on the restaurant scene! Lots of restaurants welcome a limited number (around twenty
                 for the majority) of guests and have a great atmosphere. Cosy and comfortable, you would almost think that
                 you were at home. Most menus offer a limited choice, but small restaurants also often produce great cooking.
                 There is something for all tastes: the Caffè dei Cioppi produces excellent risottos, Bob’s Kitchen features fresh
                 vegetarian cooking and the tiny Workshop Isse will delight lovers of Japanese cooking. Some even offer table-
                 d’hôtes boutiques like Cédric Casanova’s La Tête dans les olives. When privatized, the shop can seat five guests
                 around a table to enjoy delicious Sicilian food.

                 Nothing could be more natural than wanting to discover the secrets of top
                 chefs in a city where cuisine rhymes with inventiveness and tradition. The most
                 prestigious maisons have their own schools, like Lenôtre, the Ritz Escoffier,
                 or even the Alain Ducasse group which has opened a second school. A 700
                 m² space for all food lovers, children and adults, beginners or experienced.
                 In the same vein, the Atelier Guy Martin offers classes for professionals and
                 amateurs on different themes: cooking from five continents, regional cooking,
                 French gastronomy, and patisserie … a great privilege sharing the cooking
                 secrets of top chefs! What’s more, young chefs are breaking with tradition and

                 or aperitif time – ideal for working people and travellers in a hurry.

                 Nomiya, the culinary workshop and vegetable garden. It is a place for discovering surprising experiences and
                 innovative cooking. The restaurant, for 12 people, has a glass and metal structure that offers an amazing view of
                 the capital. The culinary atelier offers the opportunity for small groups to cook a meal devised by Gilles Stassart,
                 the establishment’s culinary director. Included in the experience is a tasting session of these dishes. Finally, a
                 vegetable garden, which also doubles as a terrace for having an aperitif before sitting down to eat, provides the
                 fresh vegetables for the ateliers! An ephemeral kitchen, fully-equipped for the culinary pleasures of preparing and
                 tasting a meal … Quite amazing! Continues through 2011.

                 > Unusual dinners
                 For food lovers who are always looking for something extra, Paris has several addresses with an unusual
                 atmosphere. At Sur un arbre perché, you sit on wooden swing seats in an atmosphere close to nature where
                 relaxation is a major consideration with the possibility of having a massage after the dessert. At the restaurant
                 Dans le noir, the meal takes place in darkness, while at Footsie the price of drinks varies according to your budget.
                 Auto Passion is the place to go for car enthusiasts; the Moumoute Bar offers a decor entirely of fur and at Ozu the

                 > Hurrah for tartines!
                 Bread is one of the most emblematic foods in French gastronomy. And
                 more than an accompaniment, bread can be the basis of creative and tasty
                 dishes. The tartine, a slice of bread and butter has developed from the classic
                 morning bread and jam to savoury tartines on menus throughout the capital.
                 Tomato-cheese-basil tartines, aubergine and coppa tartines, and even Savoy-
                 region tartines, the latter often being accompanied by salad is a popular and
                 satisfying dish. Most brasseries have tartines on their menus. Others make
                 them their speciality like Le Pain Quotidien, which offers a large range of
                 tartines in different parts of the capital.

                 It is now easy to find good pizzas in Paris! The French are now as accomplished as their transalpine neighbours at

                 from Rome and the eatery has now opened another address in the Marais in addition to its Oberkampf pizzeria.
                 Pizza is sold by the cm² at 40/60, in the 11th. Of course, Amici miei remains one of the favourite pizzerias of

                 Parisians love to cook. And to show off their talents and share their best recipes, they have formed local cooking
                 clubs. The principle is simple: the cooks indicate the meal or dish of the day available at their home and food
                 fans confirm that they will go along and taste the dish for free or with a contribution to expenses … A new way of
                 meeting Parisian cooking enthusiasts.

                 > Reduction in VAT
                 Since 1 July 2009, the VAT rate in cafes and restaurants has dropped from 19.6% to 5.5%. In exchange for this fiscal
                 reduction, cafe and restaurant owners have agreed to lower their prices (around 12%). The measure, which will
                 take effect progressively, can be seen in numerous Parisian restaurants whose menus reflect lower prices. Good
                 news for the taste buds and the wallet!

                 > Prices and tipping
                 It is worth noting that in Paris, eating and drinking well implies certain rules: restaurants and cafes are obliged
                 to display prices, inclusive of tax and service charge, both inside and outside their establishments; tipping is
                 therefore discretionary, although it is always appreciated.
