Here we are, the closing party has well and truly started and we are already busy (it was time!) to find YOUR place for a New Year’s Eve with friends or by candlelight… And if for you, as for me , it’s festive pasta or nothing on the last night of the year, I’m taking you to these 4 italianissimo places in Paris for an absolutely unforgettable evening.
A landmark located on the Left Bank that makes us fall in love as much with its sunny and captivating cuisine as with its ultra-cute Odéon / St-Germain district. Monteverdi is rising as an important place for Italian cuisine when you are looking for a place for December 31st. Between fettuccine with fragrant truffles and al dente, coffee tiramisu that melts in your mouth and a unique piano bar, Le Monterverdi promises you a cozy jazzy atmosphere, just the way we like it! must? The entire signature cocktail menu has been updated and we literally fall for the ultimate creation based on St-Germain, Hendricks and strawberry puree… we are in Paris, 5 from the hottest thirsty street in Paname, we named rue Guisarde.
I take you rue Vivienne to Jean-Paul Gaultier’s former workshop for a design and warm tasty Italian immersion. Not far from the premises of Kenzo and Isabel Marant, this restaurant has made its place in the Italian culinary scene of Paris, an unusual experience in sight! We are fascinated by the mirrored ceiling, the marble tables, the vegetation which is totally queen and the open kitchen, where we can watch the chefs prepare our wildest delicacies. We remain speechless over the choice of pizzas: rather Formagissima or Napoli? Dilemma. We come back for the carpaccio with bream and pink berries, but also for the rigatoni guanciale, tomato and vodka, it’s so good…
Paris Society and its new table at the foot of the Palais Tokyo: it gives Bambini. A unique terrace with a breathtaking VIEW of the Eiffel Tower, a warm and colorful interior, a solar-powered and shared kitchen… Benvenuto a tutti! We love Bambini for its super generous cuisine and for its 360° immersion from Naples to Rome. In the bar, we love to revisit the greatest Italian classics: Amaretto Sour, Spritz, Bellini… Facing the Eiffel Tower, we enjoy the gigantic burrata, the focaccias, the pastas prepared according to the rules of art and its irresistible Neapolitan pizzas. As for his Neapolitan donuts for dipping in melted chocolate? Mom yum.
Do you want it to sing, move and dance on the tables until the end of the night? Go to this prestigious landmark on the right bank, rue du Faubourg Saint Honoré! His nickname? The note. The young chef at the helm, Emilio Giagnoni, who cut his teeth with Simone Zanoni on the George V, celebrates the Italian heritage: carpaccio from the sea, vitello tonnato, risotto with saffron or sea bass, linguini with bottarga, trofie al pesto, classic tiramisu or mousse al limone… An explosion of flavor guaranteed!
