The address was impatient to turn the unpublished pages of a long-awaited recovery. A promise kept in September 2023 with, to sign its audacity, the duo Laurent de Gourcuff, and the Paris Society group, associated with the great chef Mathieu Pacaud. The places discover a new energy, the appetite a new impetus, the Laurent restaurant marks its big return.
LAURENT IS A PARTY
He is there, eager to get back on stage, eager to see you again, more than a decor, a Parisian pride. Surely among the ten most beautiful in the city.
Cordélia de Castellane, artistic director of Paris Society, gives it to us in the present tense: high ceilings, pastel-colored walls, wicker armchairs with harmonious curves and flamboyant carpets, the magic happens.
Upstairs, the living rooms, small and large, are revealed, all lovely to indulge in, right up to the balconies.
This is where gluttony takes on its full meaning.
Each dish has a touch, a style, the perfect meeting between the great chef Mathieu Pacaud and the beautiful table.
Mathieu Pacaud clarifies the classics, refines the tradition: Crudités with blown aioli, Smoked salmon with pink berry aspic, Brioche mousseline with Golden caviar, Confit cod in virgin sauce, Leg of suckling lamb with marrow and marjoram, we have some happenings that we will surely not forget, including the trio of house classics revisited in the new wave, essential Blue lobster salad, Languorous langoustines with basil leaf, Alluring spider crab refreshed with fennel jelly. Without forgetting the essential carts revealed at dessert.
LAURENT MIDI, LAURENT MINUIT.
At lunch, take care of business, everything has been redesigned so that discretion can be found in getting busy.
At dinner, same place, different climate, Laurent gains a glamour, a nightlife. Here he is in his blue hours. The lights fall at the same time as the night, the cutlery moves closer, the hidden bar becomes complicit, the glasses are filled, the service shows beautiful gestures, the food follows, light, fuller, always just before the music begins. 'installed. The room sings, laughs, dances, suddenly more sonorous, ever more alive. Always during the day and now in the evening when the address becomes the most beautiful conquest of women.
