Tucked into the side of the elegant lobby of Le Bristol Paris lies the exquisitely delicious, Michelin-starred Parisian brasserie 114 Faubourg. Since its opening in 2009, 114 Faubourg has been serving elevated French fare, much to the delight of both Le Bristol guests from around the world and local Parisians alike. Since 2013, 114 Faubourg has also proudly held a Michelin star, a true marker of its continuous high level of excellence.


The stunning two-level restaurant features a series of large, gilded columns, a winding staircase and a luxurious color palette of deep purple, orange and gold. Intricate murals of gigantic dahlias grace the walls of the dining rooms, and the lower level offers a glance into the work happening behind the scenes through the open kitchen. The chic-meets-relaxed atmosphere and the cheerful yet professional waitstaff offers diners a truly inviting Michelin-starred experience.


The perfectly curated menu includes an abundance of irresistibly delicious options, starting with entrées including Potato Gnocchi and Bouchot Mussels, cooked with seaweed butter and pak choy cabbage and Grilled Fennel with seaweed butter and tartare of Marennes oysters with Salicornia. The plats section of the menu includes a delightful selection of main dishes such as Sea Scallops cooked “à la plancha” with young shoots of New Zealand spinach and black trumpet mushrooms and black garlic cream; Braised Beef Cheek in red wine with celery tagliatelle cooked with smoked bacon and Sage and Hand-Chopped Beef Tartar flavored with anchovies and potato wafers. To top things off with some sweet treats, desserts include Lemon Pavlova from Corsica with fresh herbs; Tiramisu with Iapar Red Coffee from Brazil, speculoos and hazelnuts praline and mascarpone ice cream and Pink Grapefruit in Hibiscus Jelly with lemon and basil sorbet and skimmed cottage cheese foam.


Want to enjoy your dining experience meat-free? 114 Faubourg also offers a special menu of vegetarian dishes for guests who prefer to abstain from meat.


Following the official announcement from the Michelin Guide France earlier this year, 114 Faubourg now proudly celebrates that it has been awarded its Michelin star for the 10th year in a row.


To mark this festive 10-year milestone, Executive Chef Eric Frechon and his team at 114 Faubourg have also crafted a very special anniversary menu showcasing some of the most beloved dishes of the past decade. The five-course feast opens with Scrambled Eggs with Lobster and creamy head juice with Cajun spices, followed by Artichoke Soup with pan-seared foie gras and black truffle emulsion; a succulent filet of John Dory with cockles and artichoke mousseline with capers and “beurre blanc” and Pigeon and Foie Gras in a cereal crust and pressed cabbage with smoked bacon. The flavorful journey ends with Field Strawberry with aloe vera jelly, yogurt espuma, sorbet and strawberry crispy.


Each subsequent year as a Michelin-starred establishment has inspired the team at 114 Faubourg to achieve new levels of excellence. This year will certainly be no different. The Anniversary Menu, “10 Years of Star,” is now available for 150 euros per person (excluding drinks) at 114 Faubourg.
