This is alongside Gilbert Isaac La Fermette Marboeuf that Julien Montbabut learn the basics of traditional French cuisine after its formation in Hotel School Grégoire Ferrandi in Paris. He continued his career in fine dining restaurants as the Pavillon Ledoyen and Jamin with Benoit Guichard, then joined the chef Philippe Bélissent to Hotel, rue des Beaux Arts. After two and a half years as a deputy head Chef, in which the restaurant gets a Michelin star, he decided to try his luck at the Pavillon de la Grande Cascade, also distinguished by a Michelin star, where he was quickly promoted to Assistant Chief.At the age of 29, it is through the front door that Julien Montbabut made his return to Restaurant Hotel as a chef. He wants to offer classic French cuisine based on products and following the seasons. He highlights juices, sauces and seasonings.It brings a modern twist and a touch of lightness through its new and short seasonal menu, where you can find for example green asparagus,with caviar Alverta Imperial, Brittany Crab,with lemon & ginger, Duck foie gras with green apple. Under a canopy, the room looks like a private lounge, with its velvet armchairs, lampshades his accordion, mirrors and columns Empire style. The atmosphere is intimate, cozy and romantic. The restaurant opens onto a patio where you can have lunch or dinner on sunny days. It is decorated with a lovely fountain made to plans by Claude-Nicolas Ledoux.In addition to the à la carte menu, a day menu is available for lunch, and costs 45 € (starter, main course and dessert) or 55 € (starter, main course and dessert). For customers in a hurry, this menu can be served in an hour."I can resist everything except temptation"Oscar WildeC’est aux côtés de Gilbert Isaac à La Fermette Marboeuf que Julien Montbabut apprend les bases de la cuisine française traditionnelle après sa formation à l’école Hôtelière Grégoire Ferrandi à Paris.

I loved this restaurant. The setting itself is absolutely beautiful. Chef Julien Montbabut deserves his Michelin star. I had the lunch menu-- started with butternut soup with truffle oil and pickled onions and as main the seabream with roasted leeks. Delicious.

Beautiful setting, impeccable interior design and the staff were incredibly diligent and attentive. The food was sublime and we left feeling we had enjoyed an incredible gastronomic experience. Not cheap but then you don't expect it to be.

From the moment we entered until we left, 3 hours later, we enjoyed every minute. Of course the food was exceptional (we took the tasting menu), but the restaurant itself is very beautiful and inviting and just being seated there on the comfortable lean-back chairs one could remain for hours enjoying the ambiance.

Staying in Les Halles

Neighborhood Profile
Les Halles
Historically the central iron-clad market of Paris, Les Halles has evolved architecturally since then but the pulsating energy has stayed the same. Now it houses the main shopping mall, which nestles underground surrounded by fast-food take-aways and international restaurants coupled with beautiful churches and the old commodity exchange. Parallel to it are the high-street stores of Rue de Rivoli and just parallel to that the Seine. The area bustles with faces from all continents and all ages at all times of the day. If enjoying high-street shopping with easy access to fast eateries and lively bars is on your agenda, this is the place to go.
