If you’re in Paris this winter and craving something sweet, stop by Le Royal Monceau Raffles Paris for a chocolate treat created by illustrious pastry chef Pierre Hermé. For the winter, Hermé has transformed the hotel’s swanky Bar Long, designed by Philippe Starck, into a destination for chocolate.
Taking place every day from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. (through March 31), the pop-up bar showcases chocolate in all manner of incarnations- from a “16th century hot chocolate” with South American spices and a chocolate mousse made with Grand Cru Manjari smooth cream to a millefeuille crafted with caramelized puff pastry, Grand Cru Araguani chocolate mascarpone cream, salted butter caramel and dark chocolate slivers with fleur de sel.
Drinks start from €14 and desserts Pastries from €21. For reservations, call +33 (0)1 42 99 98 50 or email: [email protected]
Located at 37 avenue Hoche in the 8th arrondissement, Le Royal Monceau Raffles Paris was awarded the prestigious “palace hotel” distinction in 2013. For more information, visit www.leroyalmonceau.com
