For those seeking a true gastronomic indulgence, three-starred Michelin chef Yannick Alleno’s Pavillon Ledoyen merges romance with food poetry. Situated in a prime spot in central Paris, the neo-classical building is one of the oldest restaurant spaces in the city and overlooks the stunning gardens of the Champs‑Élysées. Alleno’s exquisite flavour combinations and unexpected textures are legendary and this is certainly not a meal to be rushed. There are à la carte options, however, as this is the culinary experience of a lifetime, you might as well opt for the tasting menu.
In addition to the Champs-Élysées and Arc de Triomphe, the 8th arrondissement houses Paris’ famous shopping Golden Triangle, which includes Avenue George V, Rue François 1er and Avenue Montaigne. However, if your ideal day out doesn’t include shopping this exclusive area, there are plenty of places to watch the world go by, such as Parisian institution L’Avenue on Avenue Montaigne – just down the street from Céline.
