If you happen to be in the 8th arrondissement, by Haussmann-Monceau, you know laid-back local restaurants are lacking. Meet at 61 bis rue de Monceau for a wonderful surprise. The magnificent setting is a real gem: hidden behind a carriage door, this paved area used to work as a garage for the Hôtel de Camondo – annex of the Arts Décoratifs.
Close to the Parc Monceau, ideal in the district, this winter garden with a paved courtyard has become – a few years ago – a restaurant: Le Camondo.
Coming from Bordeaux, female chef Fanny Herpin took over in 2020. After working at restaurant Allard, L’Epicure (Bristol) under the wing of Eric Fréchon, at Taillevent with Alain Solivérès, Herpin has trained at Maison Ducasse, at Le Meurice and then at Benoît.
On the menu, summer dishes cooling one’s taste buds up: Burrata from Apulia, roasted peach, and basil pesto for starter (€17), Risotto Verde, asparagus and parmesan cream, snow peas, and arugula as main course (€25), and Lemon Pie by pastry chef Carl Marletti as dessert (€14). Please also note the traditional brunch (€38) is served at weekends from noon to 4 p.m.
The ideal place for a relaxing afternoon after visiting the museum.
