 L'Oiseau Blanc at The Peninsula Hotel
TBy Sonia Falcone
he city of love is ready to open again. If open spaces are what the pandemic ordered, then L'Oiseau Blanc at The Peninsula Hotel is ready to deliver. This one-of-a-kind rooftop
restaurant and bar faces the Eiffel Tower and features an exquisite menu by chef David Bizet that embraces natural flavors and authenticity. The setting is inspired by the adventurous spirit of Charles Nungesser and François Coli, the first French pilots to attempt a transatlantic non-stop crossing. A replica of the original biplane is suspended in full flight creating a first-class atmosphere for this unique dining experience.

Le Jardin Français at Le Bristol is another beautiful, rose-filled outdoor option where the likes of Grace Kelly, Charlie Chaplin, Ava Gardner and Marilyn Monroe would come to sip cocktails while seated on Louis XVI furniture. With more than 15 varieties of tea, a ceremony worthy of British royalty takes place during the afternoons. At night, Le Bristol has one of the most peaceful and elegant bars in an exquisite urban oasis. Legendary chef Éric Fréchon brings the menu to life offering local favorites including king crab rolls and tempura-style shrimp.
Located very close to either restaurant is Avenue Montaigne, the luxury destination for high-end fashion stores including Christian Dior, Chanel Maison and D. Porthault. Come rediscover Paris!
