INTRO: LAVINIA is usually famous for its wine huge shop in the very center of Paris (near Opera). But this shop hides a secret : its wine restaurant. There, you can eat delicious premium French sets with a very French wine coming directly from the shop (more than 100 references ). Plus, in LAVINIA's restaurant, you can drink wine without paying the normal restaurant's corkage fees. So, eat and drink great wine at the cheaper price.
WHAT TO EAT: in French restaurants, we recommend to eat the daily set which is always the freshest. When we were there, we have chosen the following sets : cold scallop in lemon, black pudding with cooked apples, and French Truffle Pot au Feu.
black pudding with cooked apples
French Truffle Pot au Feu.
You can see on the menu that main set prices start from around 25 euros so you can guess the general price for lunch is not very cheap, but you will be very happy with the food, we can promise you.
ATMOSPHERE: You will be eating in the middle of wine box, this is quite unique.
This is the entrance of the shop, to find the restaurant, go upstairs.
And if you are lucky, the chef will come and make you taste some suprises like these French Truffles. The Chef is quite famous in the local Parisian life. I hope you will have the opportunity to talk to him.
