Get To Travel Around The World With Only One Spoon In ParisFriday 26 January 2018
Get To Travel Around The World With Only One Spoon In Paris⇒ CovetED Magazine is always very fond of luxury restaurants and never misses a change to experience them in person. So we went on tour to Paris, the city of lights, the city of Love and the city of the most wonderful restaurants. And what a wonderful experience we had at Spoon Restaurant & Bar. Spoon is located in the Palais Brongniart. A la carte of this DUCASSE Restaurant, recipes are inspired by the World’s culinary traditions.
Gastronomic entrepreneur Alain Ducasse’s new version of his restaurant Spoon occupies the former premises of one of Yannick Alleno’s Terroir Parisian restaurants in the Palais Brogniart, the old Paris stock-market building in the heart of the city, which were redesigned in a curiously nondescript way by the otherwise tremendously elegant interior architect Jean-Michel Wilmotte.
The second we got inside the restaurant, the decoration stood out immediately. There was a mixture of modern design perfectly combined with rustic details, such as wood dining tables and big dark iron objects. The decor was completed by incredible objects from several different countries, displayed as if we were also inside a historical museum. The restaurant wasn’t very big, but extremely comfortable, warm and the kind of place we do not wish to leave.

Spoon is perfect for romantic dinners, for business lunches and, in spite of the size, is also very nice for big group dinners. And don’t be surprised if you spend most of your time admiring the walls and the details you keep finding all the time.

So, it’s a fact that the decor takes you into a trip around the world. When you pass the entrance, you get to Asia with a huge bronze bell and an impressive gong, with you could actually interact with. By the tables, you pack your bags again, this time into the Afrian continent, with several ancient instruments displayed on the walls, which I believe to be called mbiras.
Also the music is a special feature from Spoon and a free ticket to travel around the world as well. You can listen to musics from different countries. And what a surprise it was to listen to our so beloved fado in a Parisian restaurant! A wonderful multicultural experience!
Enough now of luxury interior design. Let’s talk about the food. What can I say? Also multicultural, of course. Since we were having some difficulties in choosing, we asked the nice staff to surprise us with what they thought to be the best. And it was the best food that we have ever tried. We tasted Indian spices, Asian specialties and never-tasted combination of flavors in the desserts. It was easy to see that everything was made with ingredients with the highest quality. With the coffee, came a small square of Le Chocolat Alain Ducasse. The taste of that piece of chocolate was a unique experience for itself, a mixture of different flavors that enhanced the delicious dark chocolate. “A call pure and simple to self-indulgence”, as they say and totally confirmed.
Spoon was definitely a unique experience and a place I truly want to come back. It you get to go to Paris, don’t miss the chance to be at a wonderful restaurant with such refined cuisine. To all the staff that were so nice and welcoming, thank you so much for the impeccable service and for a memorable lunch. Looking forward to coming back in the nearest future possible.
