With the arrival of fine weather, le First, restaurant boudoir paris expands its summer residence to include La Terrasse, the hotel’s main courtyard decorated by a magnificent white marble fountain with a nymph that serves as its centerpiece. In a setting that recalls a Provençal garden, food and drink follow the natural rhythm of the seasons. Chef Grasteau and head barman Philippe Guidi take their inspiration from the aromatic herbs, such as lavender, sage, thyme, and rosemary that grow in this inviting enclave. Enjoy specialty cocktails, including alcohol-free favorites such as a Jing Tea-based sipper, or a one of many fresh fruit juice creations.
Situated under the graceful arcades of The Westin Paris - Vendôme, le First, restaurant boudoir paris offers a contemporary setting with chic baroque touches designed to please all the senses. Purple velvet banquettes and silk cushions, cozy armchairs and soft lighting, clever placements of mirrors and views of the Tuileries Garden through the window panes all blend to create a setting for convivial get-togethers as well as meals infused with romance.
Executive chef David Real's menus begin with select fresh, artisan ingredients—some of which are sourced within a 200-kilometer radius of Paris. From this formidable base he creates a modern interpretation of traditional brasserie cuisine, including menu items such as lightly pan-sautéed dieppe scallops, endives and small pumpkin with citrus fruit and a dessert of William pear dried, preserved and frosted, served with crunchy rice pudding. Other signature menu items include succulent pork with carrots, turnips and snow peas accented with a lemongrass and lobster broth; and a thoroughly classic hamburger with French fries.
The chef's SuperFoodsRx™ selections were created to amplify the benefits of wonderful tasting, nutrient-rich ingredients that supply energy and boost immune defenses. For instance, goji berries in a goji berry chutney or sorbet. Other SuperfoodsRx selections may include a starter of pan-sautéed John Dory, mousseron mushrooms, and an essential almond oil jus; an entree of meunière turbot, baby artichokes and goji chutney, and tempting desserts such as tanzania choc-hot-late with crispy cocoa beans and cocoa sorbet.
Enjoy pure Parisian ambiance amid the plush, inviting furnishings and warm red, black, and gold tones of the elegant Tuileries Bar, one of the smartest meeting places for the district’s residents. Located on the ground floor of The Westin Paris - Vendôme, the bar is also directly accessible from the rue de Castiglione.
Amid the bar’s polished wood trim and soft lamp light, paintings, prints and photographs on the walls evoke the artistic and cultural life of the 19th and early 20th centuries, with images of dance, theatre, opera, music and cinema.
The Tuileries Bar offers light snacks throughout the day, including a lunch menu of club sandwiches made with such succulent fillings as duck or king crab. In the evening, the bar is the perfect place to meet and sip your favorite cocktails.
