Guests staying at the Hôtel Louvre Marsollier should take the opportunity to treat themselves to a gourmet meal in one of the most beautiful neighborhoods in Paris. Now that Christmas lights are being illuminated across the city, visitors should not miss the chance to see the area around the Rue Saint-Honoré when it is lit up for the holidays.
At a restaurant called Le Square Saint-Honoré, visitors can enjoy both the sights and the tastes of Paris as they try delicious French cuisine in the Saint-Honoré neighborhood. Although this neighborhood in the 1st arrondissement is known for being fancy, the decor of the restaurant is simple and welcoming, enabling diners to feel at ease as they savor their dishes. With accents of violet and wood, this cozy atmosphere provides a warm respite from the cool chill of winter.
Of course, the best part about Le Square Saint-Honoré restaurant is the cuisine, which is traditional and refined. On the menu, diners will find the French mainstay « magret de canard, » otherwise known as duck breast, as well as filet mignon with sea salt. Other dishes include sea bass served with truffle cream sauce and tagliatelle with shrimp and truffle cream sauce. For dessert, diners can enjoy chocolate cake, chocolate nems or fresh fruit plates.
A meal like this does not come cheap, but prices are still very reasonable for dining out in Paris. Diners can expect to spend about 20 to 40 euros per person, depending on the number of courses that they order.
After eating, guests can stroll over to the Place Vendôme, which is right next to the restaurant, in order to get a glimpse of the ultra-posh environs. During the holidays, the Christmas lights give this square a magical quality that must be seen.
