It is one of the beautiful terraces we love to keep to ourselves. Jardin Privé managed to show the very potential of Quentin Lechat - now chef at Le Royal Monceau (please!). We wish the best to his successor Sarah Ifrah Ohana, freshly arrived to the kitchen of Novotel Paris Les Halles. She managed to relaunch T'time's menu for the summer with a menu she put together in a few weeks. Sophisticated desserts fitting everyone's taste, shining a light on the young chef's promising talent.
Head to this verdant terrace hidding in the very heart of Châtelet. To access it, you have to dare and push the door of Hotel Novotel Paris Les Halles and ask for the way to the Jardin Privé. This terrace is a genuine breath of fresh air in Paris where you can have a seat to enjoy a drink, a pre-dinner drink, or a mouthwatering afternoon snack, for a very, very affordable cost.
Affordable, really? The T'time set menu costs €19 including a drink to choose between tea, coffee, to order hot or iced, a small frozen "pre-dessert" to tickle your taste buds, and a wonderful pastry from the menu.
Among the novelties, enjoy the both crunchy and cripsy Chocolat-Coco.
The delicious, moist and very smooth Kumquat.
The reworked Tatin mixing crunch and smoothness.
And the delicious fig and goat's cheese tart. A rather low in sugar tart likely to delight fans of the cheese.
Other menus are available, including the €26-one, serving an extra pastry collection such as scone, cannelé and other sweet treats.
The €27-menu has the pastries aforementionned, and a discovery dessert, and the €34-menu has both the extra pastries and the discovery dessert. This is the menu to go if you have a really big sweet tooth.
And if you like champagne (Panier Brut) more than tea, a menu with an extra €7 is available. It has it all for you to have a lovely time in a verdant garden turning into a bubble when winter has come.
