The Invalides District – as seen in our previous blog article – is a gorgeous area of Paris to live in. Not only will you enjoy luxurious buildings and typical Parisian architecture all around this “quartier” but you’ll find out it is also fantastic for gourmet dining. The selection below (listed in no specific order) may not be exhaustive but you’ll find some of the ‘must-tries’ in the area to get you started.
L’Arpège • 84 rue de Varenne
This is gastronomy at its finest as can be found only in France. Chef Passard’s restaurant boasts three Michelin stars. As he grows his own fruits and vegetables, harvested daily every morning and then served at his restaurant, he is able to offer his extra produce in wooden baskets to his most special clients! A great treat to pick up at the restaurant or to have delivered to your home.
Petrossian • 13 & 18 boulevard de La Tour-Maubourg
The very first caviar shop in Paris, at this historical location ever since its creation in 1920, also offers a restaurant, a venue for your events, and catering services. Good to know.
Auguste • 54 rue de Bourgogne
One-Michelin star restaurant. Small, classy, intimate and refined. The perfect definition of deluxe and confidential. 🙂
Loiseau Rive Gauche • 5 rue de Bourgogne
Formerly known as Tante Marguerite, this is the second restaurant our dearly missed Chef Bernard Loiseau opened in Paris in 1999. It was awarded a Michelin Star this year. Another elegant address for gastronomic meals in a confidential atmosphere.
Garance • 34 rue Saint-Dominique
Modern and creative cuisine behind a sharp all-black façade. Vegetables are grown in their very own garden outside Paris. Kitchen-bar for 4 people at the ground floor. Main restaurant room and bar at the first floor. A private room (max. 14 people).
Le Narcisse Blanc Hotel & Spa • 19 boulevard de la Tour-Maubourg

This mostly fish and seafood restaurant facing the Esplanade des Invalides opened in 1983 and was awarded a Michelin star.
