This week’s #foodiegram comes from the City of Light itself and the glorious Le Royal Monceau Raffles Paris. Just steps away from the bustle of Champs Elysées and Arc de Triomphe, Le Royal Monceau is an oasis of 1930s calm, appointed by Philippe Starck and featuring modern Japanese cuisine at Matsuhisa through to Italian regional food in the Michelin-star restaurant Il Carpaccio. Unwind in Le Bar Long, a 1930s throwback space, designed as a living room that welcomes guests all day long to meet, gather, eat or knock back original cocktails.
Save your calories for the gourmandises – or rather, colourful delicacies created by Pierre Herme himself. Revered for the macarons, which can be purchased at Le Royal Monceau, Le Bar Long also serves a selection of desserts including almond sponge cake with raspberry liqueur and pistachio mousseline cream or brioche pastry with an old agricultural rum syrup, dark chocolate praline crisp and chocolate Chantilly cream. The only dilemma that InVoyager needs to crack is whether these gourmandises are delicate enough to justify ordering two.
