Astair: Belle Époque-style contemporary brasserie

This restaurant run by Michelin-starred chef Gilles Goujon has that inimitable “French touch” that everyone loves in Paris.

Tucked away in the Passage des Panoramas is a fun, laid-back sort of brasserie. The decor is by Tristan Auer, who also created the hand-carved cork ceiling, the art exhibited on the walls and the skilled metalwork for the bar. Take a seat on one of the tall chairs with velvet padding and sip a black pepper and cucumber gin & tonic, in moderation of course. Once at your table, you will discover 3-starred chef Gilles Goujon's refined and sophisticated cuisine. On the menu, classics of French cuisine, like oysters, frogs' legs, or Burgundy snails. The main courses are designed to be simple and to the point: Landes duck breast or Provençale-style octopus with new potatoes, for instance. The "Gilles' bourgeois dishes" section of the menu takes a more sophisticated turn, with sautéed monkfish cheeks, colourful vegetables and tarragon sauce, or "Gilles' lamb stew". Whichever you choose, you are sure to be pleased.
