3 stars in the Michelin guide
Inaugurated in 1856, Le Pré Catelan is a huge success : the bucolic site, the quality of the orchestras and the refinement of the festivals make it one of the most popular places in the capital. In 1976, Colette and Gaston Lenôtre took over Le Pré Catelan and made these salons a top venue for organizing events, distinguished by top-of-the-range gastronomy. In 2007, it was thanks to the talent of chef Frédéric Anton that the Pré Catelan restaurant obtained 3 stars in the Michelin guide.
A modern concept
The architect Pierre Yves Rochon signs here a modern and astonishing concept, in symbiosis with its environment, preserving the elegance of the place to « Find yourself in a prodigious place, in the open air, in the calm of the Bois de Boulogne, in Paris , and taste the cuisine of a great Chef while savoring the architecture of the place ». Green, black, white and silver are the dominant colors: green for a nod to the outdoor greenery, black, white, silver alternately to emphasize spaces, highlight details, pilasters, low -landforms. The furniture harmonizes or opposes the architecture of the building, classic and modern, thus accentuating this impression of purity and lightness. An elegant and audacious setting for the cuisine of Chef Frédéric Anton, whose work has been recognized by the award of a 3rd star in the Guide Michelin France. From his mentors, the chef has inherited precision and rigour, to which is added a certain taste for new combinations of flavours. Often centered on a product of choice (red mullet, morel, squab, langoustine), the plates combine balance, harmony, generosity: each of them is a little gem of workmanship, right down to its graphic design.
