Apart from luxury shopping, "le Bon Marché" is also a stylish place to enjoy a decent french lunch,
A Table by "meilleur ouvrier de France" best chef : Jean-Jacques Massé
La Grande Epicerie, a grocery store, is now offering a table above its food hall, which creates a natural connection between raw materials and art of cuisine. Suspended between the ground floor and canopy, La Table is bathed in the constant sunlight underneath a transparent roof.
The space floats in the middle of Le Bon Marché , as an inner vibe to stimulate shoppers' appetites.
Visualise yourself picnicking under the clear blue sky with greatest french food, cannot wait for this gastronomy escalator?
The atmosphere is warm and romantic with the sunlight coming through those green leaves.
Simple menu, sounds delicious just by the names.
"SOT L'Y LAISSE FRICASSE CHICKEN RISOTTO" is recommended.
Two kind of small baguette of bread and soufflets will be served as starters with the cup of bourgogne red wine. Bread is home-made and warm.
Artificial trees standing in the middle of La Table creates an illusion as if lunching alfresco.
Dishes: the juicy "sot l'y laisse risotto" and the "heart grilled beef with sauce bearnaise".
Let us tell you a story about the "sot l'y laisse" « Piece of meat very thin and tender, at each side of the chicken above the rump, so good that french people used to say " le sot l'y laisse " (only Idiots will leave it) . It is said that one French King ate only this part of chicken and used to threw the rest away or to give it to the dogs. In the picture below the potatoes are called pomme dauphine, inside of the crispy crust there is mashed potatoes mixed with delicious cream. Spreading the sauce Bearnaise will be your favourite part.
You will be amazed by the high-quality service.
Always a queue to wait for a table. Don't come too late.
Air- pollution free, noise free, with blue sky over your head, why not have a lunch break at La Table?
Have your lunch at la table and ,then enjoy a cup of coffee with a sweet dessert at Rose Bakery.
