While Racines has been praised a lot when it opened, and as we loved Bon Saint Pourçain, David Lanher is back with a highly indulging project, a new restaurant called Cèna recently inaugurated in Paris 8th arrondissement, a stone’s throw from the Parc Monceau and Boulevard Haussmann.
To run the kitchen, Lanher has hired Lyon chef Alban Chartron who trained at Louis XV by Alain Ducasse, Crissier’s Hôtel de Ville, with Anne-Sophie Pic in Valence, and even Eric Frechon at Le Bristol. An impressive curriculum for a young 32-year-old chef.
On the terrace or inside, in the middle of a clean décor designed by Ex aequo studio featuring precious wood and bench seats, gastronomes discover a short menu, getting to the point with only four starters, four main courses and four desserts. A menu changing with the seasons and giving pride of place to beautiful ingredients, worked as a whole.
Chartron promotes and promises emotion-inducing food to be shared. We are looking forward to testing it and visiting the basement where hide – rumor has it – an intimate lounge.
