For a gastronomic experience...
Rain of stars on your kitchen! The greatest restaurants in Paris have closed doors... Never mind, their gastronomic menus come to you, accompanied by the sound advice of their distinguished chefs. Yannick Alléno, of the three-starred Pavillon Ledoyen (External link) , offers the iconic dishes of Le Pavyllon and L'Abysse, which you simply have to reheat, prepare and enjoy. The same attention to detail is offered by Meurice Alain Ducasse (External link) (with a menu from €70) and David Toutain (External link) , from the eponymous restaurant. La Scène (External link) , Stéphanie Le Quellec's two-star restaurant, invites itself into the wings with a divine carrot velouté with cumin, a boeuf bourguignon-coquillettes and a Bourdaloue pear tart. Enough to comfort a long autumn evening...
...or an exceptional moment
For exceptional room service at home, you can also count on La Réserve (External link) and the carte blanche menu devised by two-starred chef Jérôme Banctel, Apicius (External link) and Mathieu Pacaud's aperitif platters, or La Tour d'Argent (External link) , with its famous ducks and cooking kits, delivered to your home. As for the Maisons Guy Savoy, - L'Atelier Maître Albert (External link) , Supu Ramen (External link) , Le Chiberta (External link) -, they roast, simmer and fry as if nothing had happened and... just for you. So, can you smell the goodness of happiness?
For bistronomy at home...
Refined, inventive but not too intimidating... This is what you need in these times of confinement. A host of fine Parisian addresses offer their bistronomic creations for takeaway or delivery. Three menus a day are available at Septime (External link) , where chef Bertrand Grébaud is not short of inspiration. At Dupin (External link) , you can enjoy the "Dwich", the takeaway snacks created by Nathan Helo. With a handful of panisse (chickpea flour) fries and a chocolate puff, life is good. Eric Fréchon and the teams at the Brasserie Lazare and Café Lazare (External link) are not to be outdone. They've even come up with Christmas and New Year menus, which you can order now! For fans of the Place de la Madeleine, Le Grand Café Fauchon (External link) is also getting busy. For lunch or dinner, at the office or at home, from the aperitif to the dessert, all you have to do is click.
...in a convivial atmosphere
When you have four closed restaurants, you might as well open one of them to make takeaway food. So here is la Pantruchoise (External link) bringing together under the same banner Pantruche, Belle Maison, Caillebotte and Coucou Café with tapas to share, a menu that changes every week and a brunch at the weekend, all in pretty 100% cardboard boxes folded like origami and which have the good taste of going in the oven. Trendy and friendly, eels (External link) the restaurant of young chef Adrien Ferrand in the 10th arrondissement, is also trendy and friendly, electrifying bistronomy with a touch of exoticism, even at home. It's time to get started!
Take in the sea air... or the local air
Dreaming of iodine and sea spray? You can have your wish granted with the seafood platters delivered to your door by La Coupole and La Lorraine (External link) , two iconic Parisian brasseries, or Dessirier (External link) , the seafood brasserie in the 17th arrondissement. As in a restaurant, everything is there: lemon, butter, mayonnaise and finger food. All that's left to do is to taste it. For the good taste of the land, there is also an embarrassment of riches. On the traditional side, the Brasserie L'Alsace (External link) brings its sauerkraut from the Champs Elysées directly to your table. For innovation, we recommend the original dishes and preparation baskets from Table (External link) , Bruno Verjus' starred restaurant. When "clicks and collects" rhyme with beautiful seasonal and regional cuisine, you'll want more!
A quick and tasty meal
Chefs' burgers for a quick and tasty meal is the appetizing initiative of Hélène Darroze who offers her own burgers, 7 days a week, on delivery or to take away, via her restaurant Jòia (External link) : vegetarian, with Basque ewe's milk cheese, with roasted Landes duck foie gras... There is something for everyone and everything is homemade, right down to the ketchup. The same effervescence at Restaurant le Drugstore (External link) on the Champs Elysées where Chef Eric Frechon has imagined a made-to-measure "to go" offer, from the iconic cheeseburger and Chips prepared in a minute to the croque-monsieur with truffles. We also like the Daily Pic (External link) verrines of the three-starred Anne-Sophie Pic for French-style fast food to be enjoyed, without hurrying, on your sofa.
- The city of Paris has created an interactive map (External link) which allows you to find all the shopkeepers (including restaurants) who offer takeaway sales.
