Fouquet's, Paris

The new menu was unveiled at the outlet of Fouquet's brasserie located in Cannes. The idea was “to reflect on the evolution of the French art de vivre” and respect France’s traditional culinary tradition. On the menu you’ll find the famous Merlan Colbert, beef tenderloin with black peppercorn flambéed with a Cognac sauce, and sweets like the classic Baba au rhum and millefeuille.
