Louvre / Palais-Royal
From the majestic Louvre to the regal Palais-Royal,
this neighborhood oozes luxury. The grand arches along
Rue de Rivoli are shadowed by mosaics in front of
decorated vitrines and hotels. Place Vendôme is lined
with the world’s best jewelers and their glittering
window displays. Every other establishment has someone
to open the door for you or park your car. You can
spend hours gazing at its haute couture shops or

La Table de L'Espadon In his signature dinner, the Chef recounts a delicious story filled with emotion, plot twists and delightful if unexpected endings. Here, he expresses the very essence of the finest products. A story of love, cuisine and flavors in which the product is king and the service royal.
