Carré des Feuillants
Today was finally the end of our Michelin star tour ending with Carré des Feuillants, a one star Michelin, elegant and minimalist contemporary French restaurant on the site of the old Feuillants convent and managed by Chef Alain Dutournier. For my look, I went with my favorite lunch/brunch dress, this gorgeous burnt orange and flowy Zaful number. While packing for Paris, I grabbed this dress from my closet in a hurry and knew I'd wear it to one of our fancy lunches. I paired the dress with these super clunky Joie shoes and the ultimate leather trench (thrifted in Pittsburg!)
The sun was finally shinning after four days of rain so I accessorized with my half leopard half beige Prada sunnies and these maroon earrings gifted to me by my friend and mentor to match my maroon coat :)
Carré des Feuillants was by far, our favorite! The food was fresh, delicious and quite unique. The only downside (or maybe the reason they don't have more stars) which I know is a bit strange considering how much we love to eat, is the size of the portions. The dishes are all so large and difficult to finish. It was a downside mainly because if we are coming here to eat, I want to clean the plate and feel damn good about it.
When we arrived we were the only ones there and about 15-20 minutes later, men in suits started to arrive and join friends for power lunches. At one point the chef came out to greet some friends and it was quite an honor to have him on the floor as we had his food. We had cheese, champagne, sweet breads, oysters, crab meat, fish, chocolate etc, etc, etc, etc, etc.
