After opening a pastry counter at the Gare Montparnasse, chef Olivier Stehly keeps on developing by opening a new store – tea house next to the Hôtel Citadines in Châtelet les Halles.
This new gourmet spot open every day first welcomes us for quality and relaxing moments within this new space, including a 18-person round table d’hôte as the main point of the place. The décor (still underwork on the picture) has been designed by young French architect and designer Michael Gouret who already worked with top chefs. For Olivier Stehly he chose to combine the elegance and the warm aspect of the wood and the stone to highlight the chef’s pop and colorful creations.
All day long, the store – tea house provides sweet pastries as well as desserts made to order. On the menu as well, a savory offering (such as hearty sandwiches) to allow you to lunch on the go or brunch on Sundays.
Olivier Stehly’s specialty? Tasty ½ sized pastries, the perfect size to enjoy several treats. They are all sized the same, from the Saint-Honoré to the lemon pie without forgetting the Saint-Domingue a praline cheesecake you have to discover as soon as possible. Besides, the chef also enjoys doing trompe-l’oeil, such as the soft-boiled egg, the mushroom and the coconut, desserts made to order and only served on the spot.
We love how playful and regressive Olivier Stehly’s pastries are, he definitely managed to keep the child inside him. We love the chef’s signature pop Eskimo pies and the Twix-inspired chocolate bars.
Note that this new patisserie – tea house also provides a tea time including a drink and a dessert for €15, all you need to enjoy a sweet and nice break.
In other words, meet from May 2 for the official opening!
