Different yet complementary, united by the same audacious vision, William Ledeuil’s two restaurants are facets of the same story-that of his desire to share. His cuisine is derived from the dialogue between his passion for Asia and his respect for French culinary tradition. Each plate is a gateway to a new destination. The ingredients and the flavors are decisive, and he combines them in total freedom, depending on his mood and interests. Tastes are not hidden; textures are in full display; colors are flaunted with irreverent jubilation. For William Ledeuil, food is a game-one of extreme rigor, which means he can’t take himself seriously. The essence lies elsewhere.
This former canteen, converted into a culinary workshop, presents a constant dialogue between the colors on the plates and those of the artworks on display. This is where “the most boundary-breaking French chef” holds court, surrounded by a cosmopolitan staff that puts on a show in the kitchen. The healthy, natural food is primary cooked “à la plancha” and in woks. Asian flavors are the stars here, and each plate is a meticulous distillation of flavors and textures from the Far East, as reinventions of French culinary classics. Here, the “Discovery” menu is a true journey.
