O110 Brasserie and Restaurant in Paris
This particular restaurant and brasserie gets its name because it is located on the roof of the Grande Arche in the Defense area of Paris at a height of 110 metres, and here you will find exceptional cuisine in a cosy atmosphere, which makes it a great place to go for a business lunch or just somewhere completely different, whilst you are on holiday in Paris. - CLOSED
With its contemporary decor of subtle chocolate colours and only space for a maximum of ninety people, the atmosphere is chic and refined, just like the French cuisine, which is exquisite, inventive and creative from two talented chefs.
Both of the chefs have worked other renowned chefs like Joel Robuchon and Alain Ducasse who now oversees the Jules Verne restaurant at the Eiffel Tower and Stephane Milan is the pastry chef who has previously worked at Michelin starred restaurants in Paris like the Hotel Crillon and the Hotel Plaza Athenee.
The second chef called Stephane Sallard, is a butcher and qualified in food preparation as well and he has also worked in Michelin starred restaurants like the Divellec, Hotel Nikko and Robuchon.
Now just some of the French cuisine delights that you may be able to experience at the O110 restaurant, for the starters you could try the homemade duck Foie Gras with pieces of smoked and dried bacon and mushroom cream or crispy scampi from the coast of the Brittany region with herbs, salad and mango tarter sauce or tomato gaspacho, brunoise of melon from the Poitou-Charantes region with fresh mint, and the cost of a starter is from €12 upwards.
The main course with fish could include delights such as prawns with boiled white and green asparagus, herbs and smoked bacon or Norwegian salmon fillet, thin vegetable pie with Parmesan cheese, red pepper coulis and tapenade made with fresh olive oil. Meat dishes could be a fried boneless rib steak, pepper sauce and sliced potatoes baked with milk and Reblochon cheese browned or filet of lamb with crumble of gingerbread, mixed vegetables and its own juices. The main courses do vary in cost quite a bit and are roughly between €19 and €27.
You can then opt for an assortment of cheeses, or go straight for one of the fabulous desserts on offer, but these all seem too tempting and it is very hard to choose! Now, as you can no doubt appreciate, all these dishes are mentioned as a guide to the type of French cuisine on offer at the O110 restaurant in Paris, but obviously the menu does change, especially with what fresh produce is available.
