The gorgeous space has been reimagined to include multiple ventures, such as a glitzy boutique, a luxury suite, a gallery, a garden and now, a restaurant run by Jean Imbert, an award-winning French chef.
Dubbed Monsieur Dior, the restaurant is perched right at the heart of the boutique and is a new Parisian spot where Imbert can revisit some of the greatest classics of French cooking while honouring the universe of the French fashion house.
The chef, alongside collaborator Antony Clémot, drew inspiration from the heritage and history of the brand to develop each menu. Some of the dishes are also taken from Christian Dior’s cookbook, La Cuisine Cousu-Main.
For example, guests can enjoy delicacies such as a Christian Dior soft-boiled egg atop caviar and cream, croques with truffles, a Granville crab served with avocado and ravioli with sweet pepper.
For dessert lovers, there are chocolate pies, vanilla flans and more at the Pâtisserie Dior, which is located on a lower floor next to an interior garden. The patisserie overlooks Dior’s rose garden and has been subtly reinterpreted by Imbert to feature delicate cakes that reinvent Dior symbols in edible form.
The patisserie also features a barista who doles out rare coffees, encouraging diners to take time to savour their drinks instead of simply rushing off. And, of course, dishes will be served on elegant Dior Maison tableware and cutlery.
