The name of Taillevent is a legend in its own right; the name of a Chef acknowledged as the founding father of French gastronomy, and the name of a restaurant that has been the epicentre of its influence ever since 1946.
The only restaurant to be a full member of the Comité Colbert, Taillevent embodies this much-admired lifestyle, for which it is not the curator, but rather the dynamic development laboratory. It is a Grande Maison in the most discerning French tradition; a gateway between eating excellence and drinking excellence that celebrates the flavours of the finest produce enjoyed at the peak of its seasonality, cooked to perfection and seasoned with taste and daring. A place in which to experience the most agreeable congruence between dishes and wines served at their optimum maturity. A place where every diner is welcomed with the same thoughtful consideration, and in which elegant gestures make service a ceremony that is more fascinating than intimidating.
The arts of decanting, flaming, slicing and dressing at the table are just some of the skills that make a Taillevent meal an experience.
Director Jean-Marie Ancher and Chef des cuisines Alain Solivérès welcome you to the former private mansion of the Duc de Morny.
Closed in August.
