Le 16 Haussmann Restaurant
Against a recently-resdesigned contemporary backdrop, where clean-honed simplicity is expressed in a palette of warm colours, stylish furniture and sophisticated white tableware, chef Michel Hache at Le 16 Haussmann Restaurant creates a menu ideal for visitors who prefer to taste the original flavours of the ingredients. Classic examples include the Dublin bay prawn ravioli in a shellfish and basil sauce, and the vegetarian asparagus risotto with truffle oil and Parmesan wafers. Pastry chef Nicolas Renoir creates sweet delights such as the super Caribbean chocolate and bitter cocoa lava cake.

The Lindbergh Bar
Early in the bar's history, it became famous in the city because it was the focus for celebrations of Charles Lindbergh's historic solo flight across the Atlantic in 1927. The Lindbergh Bar, an elegant and cosy space serving expertly made cocktails. Head barman Sébastien Protat reinvents the cocktails list season after season, which goes perfectly alongside the tantalizing menu of light dishes, main courses and desserts.
