Brasserie Lutetia restaurant in the heart of Paris’ Left Bank has been a hub of artistic society for more than a century and is still a Rive Gauche favourite. The stunning dining room looks out on the Boulevard Raspail and is a riot of chrome and black leather with period travel posters designed by Sonia Rykiel, quite a contrast to the Belle Epoque Hotel Lutetia in which it is located. The ambience is both elegant and relaxed, with a menu that features superb regional dishes with a focus on seafood. Michelin-starred Executive Chef Philippe Renard oversees the busy kitchen. Dishes might include cream of chestnut soup with peppered olive oil, sole meuniere with pureed celery with nuts, and almond palet – a special petit-four – with conference pear. The wines and service are renowned.
