France – Paris
Inspired by the proximity of the French Comedy and the Palais Royal Theatre, a unique concept is proposed with lunch – after show and tasting menus, with a choice of 5 to 8 courses.
Thibault Nizard, this young 30-year-old chef, has worked his talents in such prestigious gastronomic restaurants as Drouant, Taillevent, and La Monnaie de Paris before opening, with his partner, his own restaurant, l’Aube, located in the heart of Paris between the Louvre and the Palais-Royal Gardens.
In this establishment of 320m2 spread over two levels, with a sober and elegant decoration, a total immersion in the heart of the kitchen is proposed, and for the most curious, l’Aube invites 6 guests to the “Chef’s Table.” Ideal for a privileged moment with the chef in this open-kitchen concept.
Traditions with a modern twist
“A trained sauce maker, I am a cook by instinct. I like the great classics, but I don’t want to be bored. There has to be life on a plate, without forgetting what the customer wants.”
The chef emphasizes poultry, fish, and home-made charcuterie.
“I go to Rungis several times a month to discover, taste, and share. The suppliers guide my menus.”
For starters, the house delights in Poivrade artichoke from Brittany, accompanied by a roast and mushroom juice or morels stuffed with poultry and yellow wine.
For the main courses, you can opt for the poultry quenelle with chicken sauce, which goes well with foie gras, green asparagus, and yellow wine, or a grilled Saint Pierre, peas, meadowfoam, and fish stock with almond milk.
To end on a high note, the desserts are instinctively imagined and skillfully prepared, just like every other dish.
If you want to enjoy a unique gastronomic experience, l’Aube is undoubtedly the best place!
