The Guy Savoy restaurant at the Monnaie de Paris
In May 2015, the 3-star chef Guy Savoy moved his Parisian restaurant from the 17th arrondissement to one of the most beautiful monuments of the capital: the Monnaie de Paris.
Founded in... 864, the Monnaie de Paris is the oldest of French institutions and the oldest business in the world which, since 2011, has been renovating its space to reveal to the public its architectural beauty.
Nothing more needed to be said to convince Guy Savoy to move there: he promotes the same values as the Monnaie de Paris concerning savoir-faire, sustainable development, the sharing of heritage, the teaching of senses and excellence.
A magnificent view of Paris
On the first floor of the building, completely renovated by the architect Jean-Michel Wilmotte, the restaurant welcomes up to 60 guests to taste the best of French gastronomy. Revel in the famous artichoke soup with black truffles, or perhaps the grilled scaled bar with sweet spices accompanied with black trumpet mushrooms.
Once there, a monumental central staircase leads to the restaurant’s entrance where the famous quote by Guy Savoy is written in neon red lights: “la cuisine est l’art de transformer instantanément en joie des produits chargés d’histoire” (cooking is the art of instantly transforming historical products into happiness).
Fill your taste buds with delight! Feast your eyes, too; discover one of the best views of the capital.

The Louvre, the Institut de France, the Pont-Neuf and Pont des Arts: admire the historical side of Paris through the 11 large lounge windows, sober and minimalist in style, furnished with shades of grey.
As for the atmosphere, Guy Savoy strives to keep the friendliness and warmth from his former establishment on rue Troyon alive.
A new brasserie in 2016
Clearly taken by this magical place, Guy Savoy will set up yet another establishment at the end of 2016. This time, he will open a more casual brasserie, the Metal Café, on the ground floor of the complex, which will open out onto one of the courtyards of the estate.
