Hôtel Amour

Restaurant Hôtel Amour in ParisHôtel Amour (Paris)

Le Fooding Guide’s 2007 best spot to see and be seen

Say goodbye to the red moleskin banquettes! Hôtel Amour has gotten a new cyan blue look, livened up by pink seats and plates, which comes as a wave of freshness for the luxurious garden patio. Seated amongst all the beautiful people, it’s always a treat to nibble on this honest cuisine, which feels like a cross between neighborhood brasserie fare and room service…. The day we went for lunch, the set menu of the day featured: a straight-forward fregola sarda salad with arugula, sun-dried tomatoes and a generous dose of grated pecorino; then a delightful brownie served warm with whipped cream, hazelnut ice cream and a sprinkling of toasted almonds. Other options from the à la carte selection: clam marinière, macaroni gratin, pollack and celery mousseline, red berry blancmange… // O.D.

FEELING THIRSTY? There a naturophile and worldly wine list: an Alsatian Sylvaner from the Domaine Kumpf & Meyer (€7), a German Riesling from Rita and Rudolf Trossen (€45-50 a bottle), a Portuguese Douro red from Conceito (€38-54)… Plus six good cocktails, like the Passion Déchainée (Havana rum 7 años, lime, passion fruit purée and roasted pineapple syrup).

PRICE: Set menu €18 (lunch), à la carte €29-61, brunch €22, kids’ menu €12.50.
