Lunch in the most secret home in Paris
If you prefer an intimate setting with cozy décor, Maison Villeroy should satisfy you. Designed in the Parisian pied-à-terre style, the palace has all the symbols of luxury, without having to go overboard. are we going Festive brunch at Restaurant Trente-Trois, the hotel’s starred table, run by Chef Sébastien Sanjou. If brunch begins with a parade of fresh-from-the-oven puff pastry, it continues with a choice of eggs from Bigottière with truffle, sea bass with champagne sauce, or steak Wellington, before leaving to make room for the thirteen desserts from Provence, as tradition dictates. And for those who want to prolong the experience, Spa Villeroy exceptionally opens its doors to outside clients for tailor-made massages to be experienced alone or in pairs. We would be wrong to deny ourselves it.
Christmas and New Year’s Lunch, €175 per guest, Maison Villeroy, 33 rue Jean Goujon, 75008 Paris
Lunch at the foot of the Opéra Garnier
A true Parisian institution, Café de la Paix is back in the spotlight, following the complete renovation of the Paris Le Grand Hotel by architect Pierre-Yves Rochon. In the decor of Napoleon III listed as a historical monument, time seems to stand still, to better enjoy the decor of a Parisian postcard. So, make room for the festivities with a menu as festive as we like it among a wide selection of seafood (oysters, smoked fish and oysters), artisanal charcuterie (foie gras, terrines and roasts), and cooked dishes that make up the beauty with seasonal produce. On the sweet side, the hardest part will be choosing between Christmas specialties like chocolate truffles, candied chestnuts, or Kougelhopf and gingerbread.

A festive meal in an Art Deco setting worthy of “The Great Gatsby”
For those who like a Christmas atmosphere, “ma non troppo”, head to the Hotel Prince de Galles and more specifically the 19.20 Bar. We love the Art Deco heritage that transports you to the “Gatsby The Magnificent” atmosphere. A destination that will delight movie buffs, between walls with amber leaves, and furniture that elegantly blends mahogany and velvet finishes. On the plate, give way to an over-the-top brunch with seafood, smoked duck breast, grilled lobster with fleur de sel or Wellington-style veal rub shoulders. Special mention for the dessert, a honeycomb-shaped bar smacked with honey and propolis, two ingredients Chef Gerald Poirier combined in a super gourmet recipe.
