Picturesquely located in the gardens of the Champs-Elysées, the Pavillon Ledoyen, with three Michelin stars, is one of the oldest gastronomic restaurants in Paris.  Neoclassical in design, it has a breathtaking facade, art decor interior, rich wood panelling, and an enchanting glass roof.  Under the guidance of chef Christian Le Squer, who believes “the kitchen is a matter of memory and inheritance” and whose “creations always bear the mark of tradition . . . while evolving with current trends”, Pavillon Ledoyen has become one of the most popular in Paris . . .

One that combines visual simplicity with complex flavours, while at the same time being elegant an full of freshness.  Among the highlights are the veal sweetbreads with lemongrass, the turbot with truffle emulsion and the langoustines with citrus.  It’s always a pleasure to discover in the Carré des Champs Elysées districts a legendary place in the midst of an oasis of greenery.  This is Paris at its most magical!”

—Christian Le Squer
