French Victory to be celebrated on the Champs Elysées – which restaurant to look around?

Congratulations to the French soccer team for this great victory in the Final of the 2018 World Cup in Russia.

From 1 to 2 stars but not awarded by the Michelin guide this time! Indeed, France is a regular of the stars: 610 addresses Michelin starred this year! To celebrate this victory as it should, a stroll on the Champs Elysees will be held today. But where to stop eating?

Curiously, the best restaurants are not on the most beautiful avenue in the world.

A funny gourmet geography that could be called “ridge syndrome”. It is far, if it ever existed, the time when we were meeting on the Champs for lunch or dinner! Renowned addresses are rare on this mythical avenue. Atelier Joël Robuchon-Étoile (no. 133 avenue des Champs Elysées), Le Fouquet’s (no. 99), 68 Guy Martin (no. 68), Le Pavillon Ledoyen (8, avenue Duthuit, in the green zone of the Champs-Élysées gardens ), or Copenhagen at the House of Denmark (No. 142).

L’Atelier Joël Robuchon-Etoile (no. 133 avenue des Champs Elysées)

Joël Robuchon being the chef with the most Michelin stars in the world. In this Atelier, Mélanie Serre, Executive Chef and her team are responsible for preparing Joel Robuchon’s creations in small or large portions.

Le Fouquet’s (no. 99 avenue des Champs Elysées)

An historic restaurant since 1899, associated with the Barrière Hotel Le Fouquet’s Paris, at the corner of the Champs-Elysées and Avenue George-V. The dining room is listed in the inventory of historical monuments since 1990.The menu, developed in collaboration with 3-star chef Pierre Gagnaire, continues the tradition of the great classics of French cuisine.

Le Pavillon Ledoyen and its 3 stars (8, avenue Duthuit, in the green zone of the Champs-Élysées gardens )

Yannick Alléno took over the kitchens of the restaurant in 2004 when it recorded hundreds of thousands of euros of loss. He took this historic house a step further in modernity

In any case, an inventory not very dense compared to the fast food signs that invade the sidewalks.

Leon de Bruxelles, McDonald’s, Pizza Pino, Quick, Five Guys, Burger King … Welcome to the realm of fast food chains. The Avenue des Champs-Elysees looks like the skeleton of a fish. It is the great dorsal ridge on which, it must be admitted, there is not much going on. On the other hand, that animation in the small side edges! A nursery of palaces with a high concentration of stars, an anthology of beautiful addresses for gastronomic purposes. So yes, we can eat beautifully at the Champs-Elysées. by planting its cutlery on the sides !
