Le Costes

Restaurant Le Costes in ParisLe Costes (Paris) - © Arno Nollen

Second Empire décor, a lineup that brings together the fashion crowd, jet-setters aged eight to 88 (the day we went, we spotted Caroline de Maigret and Dany Boon), wealthy tourists and staff that could just as easily be signed by Elite Models…Much like Holly Golightly gazing at the Tiffany’s window display, you get the feeling that “nothing very bad could happen to you here.” And that might even be true under the reign of Covid XIX! Even if the worldly comedy of manners taking place on the Italian-style patio is more interesting than what’s actually on the plates, they can still hold their own! Expect healthy options (bass tartare), world recipes (chicken spring rolls, classic Crying Tiger beef…) and typical room service options: a beautiful Niçoise salad upgraded to include flash-seared fresh tuna; one of the best club sandwiches in the capital – prepared in the classic way or as a gluten-free version with salmon and avocado; a divine pavlova with summer berries and voluptuous meringue for dessert. // C.C.

FEELING THIRSTY? There’s freshly made juice, cocktails (including the Moscow Mules and Bellinis at €24 each) and all kinds of wine, including a Moulis du Château Chasse (€18 a glass)…
