Paris : The Relais d’Auteuil

For over 20 years, Patrick and Laurence Pignol have been running the Relais d’Auteuil with a talent and passion that attracts the cream of Parisian gourmet high society.

The professionalism and generosity of the starred chef Patrick propelled him to the rank of a true virtuoso in the art of grand French cuisine. Amid a contemporary setting enhanced by works of art, this keen watchmaking enthusiast offers a menu that keeps time with the seasons including game in the autumn.

Succumb to the delights of golden brown frogs’ legs à la meunière, grey shallots, water cress, sesame lacework; a thick sea bass fillet baked in the oven, with a crispy skin sprinkled with Haut Penjy pepper, olive oil and soy sauce and a balsamic vinegar reduction ; or calf sweetbread browned in cardamom butter flavoured with sorrel.

And to round off the meal, the sweet delight of the chocolate soufflé with crunchy “Araguani” cocoa nib biscuit base.

On the wine side, you will love the cellar which has  an exceptional 80,000-bottle collection. Naturally every region in France is represented, as well as wines from all over the world, and the best vintages.

So make it a date at the Porte d’Auteuil, just a stone’s throw from Roland Garros and the Parc des Princes, to share a moment that is bound to prove exceptional !
