About the restaurant Le Clarence

LE RESTAURANT
A deux pas de l’une des plus belles avenues du monde, Le Clarence célèbre l’art de vivre à la française dans un hôtel particulier édifié en 1884 par l’architecte Henri Parent. Nouvelle propriété du prince Robert du Luxembourg, président du domaine de vin bordelais Clarence Dillon, cette table nous invite à revivre la grande époque grâce à son décor hors du temps avec boiseries, moulures, tapisseries, tableaux d’époque, lustres d’antan et mobilier chiné. Répartis entre trois élégants salons, les 35 convives d’un service ne découvriront pas une grande gastronomie hexagonale enfermée sous cloche, sinon une subtile réinterprétation de la cuisine bourgeoise, fière de ses produits nobles, de ses techniques et marquée par l’audace et intelligence du palais de Christophe Pelé. Les grenouilles se servent en tempura, la langoustine frotte sa délicatesse au caractériel pied de cochon et le rouget aux branches de fenouil sauvage, découpé en salle, se teinte d’encre de seiche puis s’escorte d’un artichaut au jambon noir de Bigorre.

LE CHEF
Après avoir disparu avec son restaurant la Bigarade et sa double étoile, le chef Christophe Pelé revient faire valser les plus fins des palais parisiens. Pour trinquer en sa compagnie, le MOF sommelier Antoine Pétrus a conçu une carte extraordinaire de vins où figurent plus de 120 vignerons de toutes les régions de France.

CONSEIL D'INSIDER
Au cœur de cette maison bourgeoise se cache un réel trésor pour initiés, « La Cave du Château ». On y déguste en privé de précieux millésimes des propriétés de Domaine Clarence Dillon ainsi qu’une sélection des plus grands crus et des meilleurs spiritueux français.

The experience is brilliant, unique and mildly annoying. Clearly, a very talented chef who does his own thing. Your only choices are the number of courses and the wine selection. How do you pick a wine when you don't know what you are having? Five courses turns into 25-30 or more mini-dishes. Fortunately, we have no allergies and like most everything. Beautiful surroundings, pleasant young wait staff and some intriguing combinations. More of an initiation than a linear meal. Not for everyone.

For a splurge lunch, the 90 Euro degustation menu served at the two Michelin star Le Clarence, may be the best deal in Paris.

Located in an over the top, opulent nineteenth century townhouse, Le Clarence is the epitome of old school, "white glove" dining. I wouldn't want to dine like this often, but once a year, it is a treat. The formality begins at the entrance, when diners are led upstairs the winding staircase to one of the dining rooms. This is Napoleonic, in every sense of the word. Table linens, heavy cutlery, and sparkling crystal complete the picture. An army of servers are at your beck and call, dressed up and formally trained. You will never know their name. Le Clarence is not part of the "Hello my name is Cindi, and I'm your server today" school of thought.

Chef Christophe Pete, no relation to the Brazilian footballer, reinvents classical French cooking in an innovative, but well, classic manner. The dishes keep coming during the set menu lunch, most are incredible. There are a couple of misses, depending on your tastes. Yet, I applaud the creativity. Chefs must take chances. Food is very personal.

Unfortunately, we fell into a Parisian trap at La Clarence. The set menu is 90 Euros, but we had wine, cocktails, a truffle supplement, and that caused the bill to raise to an uncomfortable stratosphere. Thus, be pre-warned, and order smartly. Le Clarence can be an unforgettable experience.

Perfect location for a special birthday dinner for my father visiting from the US, who enjoyed every last evolution of his seven (read nearly 20) courses. Chef was very accommodating of our special needs and the service was attentive without being the least bit overbearing.

This is a French Laundryesque kind of restaurant. If you order the 5 course tasting menu, expect, 15 courses, give or take. Exquisite preparation and atmosphere. Be aware that this is a Clarence Dillon property, so the wines are pages and pages of Haut Brion. Fortunately, Haut Brion creates tremendous white as well as red Bordeaux. The staff are invisible, and very helpful. It would also be nice if the tourists in the restaurant would take a little time to dress for dinner. Short sleeve polos and sneakers (as the guests in the next room with 3teens in tow can demonstrate), are just cringe worthy as my fellow countrymen.
Cannot we just exercise a little class people? This is not Popeyes on a Thursday night in Memphis.

All in all, superb, classic cusine a la Francaise. Like a great blanc de Blanc champagne, bring your wallet. But you will not be disappointed by the food.

Absolutely the best meal I have ever had (including other Michelin star restaurants). The five course meal was substantial and multilayered. The les domaines wine pairing was exceptional. They handled allergies incredibly well. Perfect service. Highly recommend. Plan on going every time I am in Paris

Exceptional lunch with exemplary service. We had our 18 month old grandson and his parents for a Saturday lunch. We arrived at 12:30 and finished around 3:15. We choose the three course option which is created by the chef on a daily basis. One of our guests was allergic to fish so the chef organized a superlative lunch. We would recommend anyone to make a reservation - the meal, food, service were exordinary!!!!
