August in Paris is the perfect time to treat your partner to a romantic dinner in a fresh and breezy setting, a treasure that one of the most prestigious restaurants in the city withholds… Fight through the temptation of getting a table in the magnificent Art Nouveau dining hall of L’Espadon at the Ritz Hotel, and you will find yourself enjoying excellent grande cuisine amidst a wonderfully unexpected summer garden.
A fine lunch in the middle of a shopping afternoon? La Terrasse, on the top floor of the Galeries Lafayette. From May to September only, the sophisticated and trendy cuisine of chef Fumiko Kono and pâtissier Pierre Hermé accompany the exceptional view over Paris rooftops and the Eiffel Tower.
And speaking of the Eiffel Tower… What could be more romantically exciting than dinner at the recently redecoratedJules Verne, on the second floor of the monument? All year round, you can sit by the scenic bay windows, attended by the young and talented chef Pascal Féraud, a culinary disciple of Alain Ducasse.
