Description: Le First Restaurant Boudoir Paris in Paris’s glorious Westin Hotel – the 1st Arrondissement is the heart of Paris and Le First is right in the heart of the 1st. With views directly over the Tuileries, this elegant, neo-modern dining room is dressed in amazing purple silks and velvets, with long cushioned banquettes, multiple mirrors and drapes. The leaf-print flooring and silver spears take inspiration from the Tuileries, yet it all retains a flatteringly masculine air. It has an intimate ambience, as if you were entertaining at home. In fact, Le First is called a ‘restaurant boudoir’. Chef Gilles Grasteau, the highest honour, has created an inventive menu that is a contemporary and refined twist on traditional brasserie-style cuisine. Like this: thin aubergine and ground mint tart with half-cooked sardine fillets, steamed cod dim sum style with crunchy herb salad, a fabulous luxury burger, chocolate and raspberry tiramisu. The Old World/NewWorld wine list is almost completely available by the glass. For groups of eight or more, there is a First & More menu – just four courses – though we’d be tempted to gather our guests or colleagues and treat them to the seven-course First Tasting menu. For larger groups, the Westin Hotel has a very professional staff on hand to help you create the event you desire.

My husband and I stayed at the Westin Paris Vendome (home of Le First) both before and after a 10-day Seine cruise over the holidays (Christmas 2014-New Year 2015), and we enjoyed several meals at Le First (and a bountiful breakfast each morning--a huge buffet along with service for special hot orders and beverages). The setting is elegant but also... More

Le first offers a great style of cooking with deserts to die for. The chef shows passion in his creations and we will definitely go back. The service is kind and professional and the restaurant and well designed. Try to book a table at the window if you can.

We went to this restaurant by chance it was amazing inside very plush and comfy. Typical French decor. The food was very good no complaints. My only bugging thing the price for wine very expensive otherwise food was priced very reasonably. Will definitely be going back next time in Paris.

You might think 39€ for breakfast is too much. Having spent as much as 120€ per person elsewhere, this array is actually a decent value. Items included are miso soup, yakatori, smoked salmon, cols cuts, cheeses, hard boiled eggs, scrambled eggs, bacon, sausage, cooked mushrooms, broiled tomatoes, breads, pastries, cookies, fresh cut up fruit, yogurt and more!
