The restaurant of theHotel Montalembert offers light cuisine focused on Asian flavors, in an extremely sophisticated decor.
In the heart of the left bank, not far from the church of Saint-Germain-des-Prés, the Hotel Montalembert is one of the most charming hotels in Paris. With its golden stone façade overlooking rue du Bac, this establishment rubs shoulders with antique shops and art galleries.
No wonder then that this address is particularly frequented by the artistic community, which particularly appreciates the Montalembert restaurant, a real central point of the house. The decor is sumptuous with white Carrara marble for the bar, dark rosewood paneling and dark wood flooring.
A sofa by Pascal Allaman brings a colorful note facing the fireplace, while the famous Salon Gallimard – in reference to the neighboring publishing house – has a large bay window opening onto a bright mini patio.
In this setting of undeniable charm, we come to taste the cuisine of chef David Maroleau, oriented towards lightness and well-being with an obvious Asian connotation. Thus, we find low-calorie dishes, tangy compositions highlighting organic products.
To be tested without hesitation: the prawn tartare seared the Thai way with Koshi Hikari rice and lemongrass Dashi broth, a new popular recipe from this address that has become a must in Saint-Germain.
♡ The Paris Select favourite: the fireplace lounge and its library which make up a cozy and warm lounge area.
