Where To Eat During Paris Fashion Week

With the who’s who of fashion heading to the French capital this week, we’ve selected seven of the chicest restaurants in the city.

Showcasing neo-bistro, Slavic decadence, and Art Nouveau, these Paris restaurants differ in style, but all give a taste of fine French hospitality. Whether you’re taking a break from Paris Fashion Week, or simply fancy some people-watching from behind your Moules Mariniéres, head to one of these tasty – and stylish – spots pronto.

Counting Opéra Garnier as a neighbour, this Art Noveau inspired restaurant is surprisingly easy-going. That doesn’t mean you can don your sneakers; you’ll still need to dress up in order to dine here. It is Paris, after all. What it does mean is a warm, inviting atmosphere, perfect for a post-show recline. If we were going to design our perfect meal here, we’d choose the Langoustine Ravioli with Green Cabbage as a main, and the hazelnut chocolate croquant for dessert. Topped off with a cocktail féminin, élégant et pétillant, a carefully crafted cocktail made with vodka, prosecco jasmine, and peach.


Maison Russe

Slavic decadence is the theme at Maison Russe, and the decor reflects it: luxe, lavish, and somewhat OTT. But that just adds to the charm. Tucked away in the upmarket residential 16th arrondissement – home to foreign embassies and the Fondation Louis Vuitton – expect an extravagant environment where ordering caviar by the half kilo doesn’t seem out of place. If you’re not content with dining in the midst of all the fashion week action, book one of the upstairs private lounges.


Soho House Paris

Located on a quiet street in Pigalle, Soho House Paris is set in a 19th-century apartment building, once home to French poet and painter, Jean Cocteau. Opening just in time for Paris Fashion Week 2021, the 1940s geometric windows overlooking the pool and winter garden, and black-and-white marble flooring that runs through the ground floor, make this a catwalk in itself as you saunter to your table to dine. Pop downstairs at night for the underground cabaret, complete with a curved bar and watch film projections to private concerts.


Septime

Gracefully making its way up the World’s 50 Best Restaurants list (it was no. 24 in 2021 and is no. 22 in 2022) is the neo-bistro, Septime. Don’t let the pared-back, rustic decor and dishes fool you: this is a one Michelin star restaurant, and the proof is in every bite. Seasons dictate the menu and it changes every two weeks but expect fresh, creative combinations that are as much of a pleasure for the eyes as they are for the mouth. The chef, Bertrand Grébaut, used to be an interior designer and his eye for design is clearly conveyed in the way he presents his food.


Mun

We’re torn on where to sit when we visit Mun. Should we take a seat on the impressive rooftop with views over the Champs-Elysées, Arc de Triomphe, and Eiffel Tower, or would we prefer to dine in the opulent, boudoir-inspired interior where velvet chairs meet floral finishes? Either way, we know what we’re eating: lobster salad, beef tartar, black miso cod, and sea bream sashimi.


Le Tout-Paris

Located on the seventh floor of the Cheval Blanc, with impressive views of the Seine from its terrace, this is a fun addition to the Parisian dining scene. Bright interiors by Peter Mario complement the spirited atmosphere, contemporary food, creative cocktails, and cosmopolitan clientele. Since opening in late 2021 it’s truly cut its chops in the world of modern French brasseries; we love the Tout-Paris Onion Soup, and the crab and avocado pie. Plus we’ll never miss a chance to indulge in the decadent chocolate soufflé.


Le Bar des Prés

Well known to the Parisian crowd, this dimly lit and utterly seductive space in the 6th arrondissement pays homage to the bistros of Saint-Germain during La Belle Époque. Take a seat at the marble bar and tuck in to some of the best sushi and sake in the city, courtesy of celebrated chef Mr Cyril Lignac. Rolls like the California roll with salmon, avocado, jalapeno and sriracha, cocktails like the péché mignon with mint, and desserts like profiteroles with yuzu cream and Brittany strawberries all make for extravagance…on point.
