For over 80 years, the dining room has boasted a luxurious decor: columns, planters of orchids and green plants, silver tableware and trinkets, crystal chandeliers, Chinese porcelain...

To set itself apart from the competition, René Lasserre organized gala dinners at which doves are released, each bearing a number on its leg, corresponding to prestigious prizes. Customers leaved with the gift corresponding to the dove that landed on their table.

Chef Jean-Louis Nomicos refines tradition with a zest of personality: stuffed macaroni, black truffle, celery and duck foie gras in a light gratin; André Malraux squab, French peas; grand cru chocolate soufflé tart...
