With the confinement, even the best-starred restaurants in Paris had to close, but this was without counting on chef’s creativity, actually, overflowing! To continue surprising their lovely gourmets, the best-starred restaurants joined the takeaway trend and propose amazing takeaway menus. The best food from Paris in front of your favorite Netflix series is from now on, possible!
1. The most emblematic starred restaurants in Paris, La Tour d’Argent, is turning on the stove!
Fresh news!! The oldest restaurant in Europe takes its turn to take the side of delivery and Click&Collect while waiting for the reopening. This iconic address of the capital located on the banks of the Seine offers a view worthy of a postcard from its restaurant located high up. While waiting to enjoy it again, you can now taste its world-renowned cuisine, which has been rewarded with a star.
In the plate, the restaurant offers you its exceptional ducks from the Maison Burgaud’s breeding farm and fed exclusively with vegetable, mineral and vitamin-rich food.

Or, you can also choose the stylish alternative: ordering ready-to-go small dishes from La Rôtisserie d’Argent for an amazing bistro treat: whole roasted duck for two (€32) or breast of duck with honey and sautéed small potatoes (€5).
Because a real French can’t eat a meal without bread, the Boulangerie de la Tour continues to delight lovers of good bread and sweet beaks under the command of Chef Lucie Espeillac. The traditional baguette de la Tour (€1,20 for a baguette) and the famous pies invite themselves to your tables as well as the pastries that will sweep you off your feet! The pastries are also ready to be savoured for dessert or at snack time: Flan, Paris-Brest, chocolate éclair, or Baba au Rhum, pickyour guilty pleasure!
And since the summertime in Paris is accompanied by frosty flavours, the Boulangerie de la Tour also offers to deliver half-liter tubs of ice cream carefully prepared by Une Glace à Paris. Rice pudding, Café Cardamome, Caramel Croquant, Lemon Tonka, or Strawberry Hibiscus, Emmanuel Ryon’s exceptional creations will delight ice cream and sorbet lovers! I’m melting…

To delight the taste buds of the greediest, Guy Savoy set up his new “take away menu”, the signature dishes from 3 of Guy Savoy’s Parisian restaurants.
On the menu: 2 dishes that have made his reputation: the famous artichoke soup with black truffle (€110) or his Bresse poultry with foie gras and artichoke, vinaigrette with truffle (€90). Both dishes come straight ahead from Le Chiberta’s kitchen (8th arrondissement).

The suggestion is a terrific menu comprising starter-dish-dessert at €29 in deluxe rotisserie mode with salad or cauliflower soup, spit-roasted poultry and gratin dauphinois or duck breast-ratatouille. Regarding the choco praline-feuilleté, it’s one of the must-eat Parisian desserts to be tested once in a lifetime. Is your mouth watering as much as me right now?
And for the Asians’cuisine lovers, let me introduce you his amazing Supu Ramen at Odéon, whose awesome soups and noodles are prepared with the top-notch products of his nearby 3 stars venue. I’m melting…
