This is THE BIG opening that every foody has been waiting for. Following the inauguration of Christophe Michalak’s and Christophe Adam’s spots, we expected only on thing: the creation of a Pierre Hermé restaurant-teahouse, a place by the Picasso of the pastry and World’s best pastry chef.
He did it with the 86 Champs concept-store, an address thought up with L’Occitane en Provence to make lovers of Ispahan, Mogador and Plénitude live out incredible moments.
The concept-store will be open daily from 7:30 a.m. to 11:30 p.m. to meet all your needs. Imagine a venue hallway through a teahouse, a restaurant and a wellness salon… an overview of heaven.
But why this project with L’Occitane? It’s obvious once you know it. Pierre Hermé and L’Occitane use the same smells and scents in their ranges of products, they’re friends and they joined forces to open this central concept-store on the Champs-Elysées. Rose, almond, verbena, immortal, shea, we can touch, smell, taste and drink the ingredients so much loved by these two houses!
At 86 Avenue des Champs-Elysées, the pastry chef presents the best of his arts thanks to his right-hand-man in Royal Monceau, Yann Evano, who offers pastries by the plate that will leave you in awe because of their textures, their temperatures and their tastes completing the range of the take-away offer.
The pastry chef promises us exclusive desserts, delicious dishes and “cakes to drink”, to enjoy with a straw or a spoon (they also remind us of Michalak’s Kosmik, but better) and Pierre Hermé drinks we can’t find in his stores, to be enjoyed on the bench seat or at the counter.
For breakfast, Pierre Hermé offers classic viennoiseries, Ispahan croissant (€2.40), Gugelhupf (€4.20), granola, yogurt and fresh fruits for €16 to enjoy with teas, delightful coffees (give a go to the Cascaccino – a cappuccino with Cascara) or a hot chocolate (with passion fruits for Mogador lovers!) for €12.
For the breakfast of the champion, the set menu 86 Champs includes a fresh fruit juice, a hot drink, mini viennoiseries, a baguette with sides (butter, Ispahan and Satine jams, Infiniment Praliné Noisette spread) and eggs cooked how you like them for €38!
For a relaxing afternoon, the tea salon highlights desserts by the plate: mille-feuille on order (rose-raspberry-litchi, vanilla, chocolate-passion fruit or chocolate-yuzu), signature desserts, desserts to drink based on ice cream and biscuits (€15), count €50 for a break for two with two hot drinks, two macarons and two madeleines.
If this address makes you dream, know that Pierre Hermé launches his savory menu! Yes, savory with brasserie dishes perfectly revisited including the roasted poultry from Bresse for €32, bottarga spaghetti for €25, a croque-monsieur with Comté cheese for €24 and roasted pumpkin with hazelnuts from Piedmont and crispy bacon without forgetting omelets in all shapes for breakfast.
The opening is scheduled on December 8, 2017, we’ll be the first ones at the doors to show you everything with pictures!
Pierre Hermé finally opens his teahouse!
