Laurent restaurant has been a storied place in Paris since 1842 but it has recently undergone a refresh from the Paris Society group. I first made aware of the project when Cordélia de Castellane posted from inside the renovation. She’s been in charge of decor for many Paris Society restaurants including Laurent which has “pastel-colored walls, harmoniously curved wicker armchairs, from Lila K antiques, and flamboyant carpets. Upstairs, you’ll find lounges large and small, all of which are a delight to indulge in, right up to the balconies”. The terrasse is quite large and is always popular during nice weather.
“The menu is comprehensive, opulent and varied, offering plenty of choice. The perfect encounter between a great chef and a fine table. Mathieu Pacaud brightens up the classics, refining tradition: crudités with soufflé aïoli, smoked salmon in pink berry aspic, mousseline brioche with Golden caviar, cod confit in sauce vierge, filet au poivre, the inevitable blue lobster salad, languorous langoustines in basil leaf… Not forgetting the unmissable dessert cart.”
Definitely put Laurent on your list for you next trip to Paris.
