L’Arpege

7th Arrondissement
French Gastronomy

Alain Passard’s vegetable centric haute gastronomy restaurant continues to be the top-ranked table in Paris in various guides and best restaurant lists throughout the world. Celebrating its 30th anniversary in 2016, it has long been a training ground for young chefs who go on to do big things in Paris. The restaurant has maintained three Michelin stars since 1996 and Passard is largely credited with bringing vegetable-driven cuisine to the French capital (if not the rest of the world): Three organic gardens throughout France supply the restaurant almost exclusively. While the somewhat sterile dining room is nothing to write home about, the cuisine—including the famed L’Arpege egg, an egg yolk served in its shell with a sherry and maple syrup cream and the patented Bouquet of Roses apple tart—is divine.
