42 Avenue Gabriel, a capital address
Mid-way between Rue du Faubourg Saint-Honoré and Avenue Montaigne, a stone's throw from the Champs-Elysées, where the heart of Paris beats. Nestled in a peaceful location, slightly set back from the world's most beautiful avenue, La Réserve Paris – Hotel and Spa overlooks the Grand Palais, the Eiffel Tower, the Pantheon and the Concorde obelisk. Just in front, a majestic curtain of trees preserves the intimacy of this place, like an echo of the Elysée gardens nearby.
All around are immense spaces bathed in light, barely muted by the rich fabrics of the hangings. Scattered here and there are beautiful marble fireplaces, and everywhere the joy of vast indoor spaces, typical of Haussmann-style apartments. The noble and generous materials exude a forgotten spirit of generosity. More suites than rooms, a library reserved for guests and their friends, a smoking lounge, a 16-meter indoor pool (a rarity in Paris), wine cellars in the suites, an inner courtyard with lush greenery echoing the landscaped entrance. At La Réserve Paris – Hotel and Spa, you experience the quintessence of Parisian chic in the Belle Époque.
Lunchtime at La Pagode de Cos
Paris-Bordeaux… The latest Jérôme Banctel restaurant pays tribute to Cos d’Estournel, Second Grand cru classé Saint-Estèphe belonging to La Réserve owner Michel Reybier. The only chateau in the Bordeaux region to feature exotic pagodas, it was indeed the first to export its production to India. La Pagode de Cos perpetuates this spirit of epicurean creativity. Within the elegant setting of the private mansion at 42, Avenue Gabriel, La Pagode de Cos exalts all the distinctive codes of the French art of living, exemplified in its flowered silk-upholstered armchairs, its finely wrought gilded woodwork and its monumental fireplace.
Under the supervision of Executive Chef Jérome Banctel, Emmanuel Sibileau offers fascinating variations on the theme of contemporary seasonal cuisine, constantly evolving yet perpetually inspired by the classics of traditional Bordeaux cuisine.
From refined starters to the spectacular solid silver dessert trolley, a meal here brings a succession of delicious surprises, to be savored visually before enjoying their delicate flavors. Both at lunch and dinner, the “Carte Blanche” menus provide an opportunity to discover the creations of two-star Michelin chef Jérôme Banctel, resolutely based on market produce.
Special thanks to Jean-Luc Naret all the Staff at La Reserve who made us feel like home.
