Located in a 600-year-old temple, this restaurant exerts inevitable charm and magic. Tastefully refurbished, with subtle lighting, it daringly allies tradition and modernity through glass, steel, ancient tile and stone. Its refinement is astounding.
But that is not all. Ignacio Lecleir, formerly at Boulud in Beijing after collaborating with Daniel Boulud in New York, has concocted a French-inspired gourmet menu very much in the tone of the restaurant. You will experience happiness with the various chef's specialities, preceded by delectable appetisers. Enjoy a seabass with kumquats, rigatoni with foie gras, a frozen pistachio and jasmine tea, or the chocolate fondant with passion fruit. A sommelier will help you choose from the expansive wine list. And after the meal, you can end this exceptional evening with a walk inside the temple.
