Food critics, major restaurant guides and foodies alike have only praise for Au Gourmand on the borders of historical Opera/Louvre/Palais Royal triangle. Ranked among the top 50 mid-range restaurants in Paris, Au Gourmand specialises exemplary classic and contemporary French dishes and exceptional wines. Only the season’s best makes it to the award-winning kitchen. Vegetables come from celebrity market gardener Joël Thiébault; the suckling lamb comes from Biarritz; the foie gras is from the Gers; and wild green asparagus is grown in Provence. Ochre walls and red velvet curtains give Au Gourmand a grown-up that seems to please even the celebrity patrons, of which there are a fair few.
