Centenary-old institution, restaurant Le Louis XVI set on rue des Mathurins is now resolutely locavore! This beautiful brasserie – recently taken over by Daïna Savesi and Guillaume Clauss-Nasta, has been entirely redesigned. The menu is now including products mainly sourced in Ile-de-France and gives pride of place to short circuit.
This is how you can enjoy meats selected by master butcher Hugo Desnoyer, fishes of the day by Tom Saveurs whilst vegetables come from Christophe Latour’s, natural sourdough bread from Thierry Breton’s and andouillette is handmade in L’Argoat lab. As for legumes and seeds, they come from farms set in Ile-de-France so it the burrata from Ottanta.
Moving on to design, the atmosphere gives a new idea of the brasserie with a clean and warm décor where the philosophy of eating well filters the room and the plates! Each supplier is thoroughly sourced, and each product has its spot in the heart of seasonal, plural and hearty cuisine. What can you eat for instance? Pan-fried scallops and mashed sweet potatoes with amaranth leaves, Marmandes tomatoes, organic burrata from Ottanta and “black fruity” olive oil, or some delicious lemon curd with sumac crumble, so good!
Of course, each and every dessert is homemade (honorable mention to the Paris-Brest), and the wine list has bee made with skill and respects the terroir. We also have a nice selection of nature wines and classic wines, the house’s favorites. An address where the service is as smiling as the plates are sophisticated, it’s definitely a go-to!
