Our Paris correspondent, Mary Winston-Nicklin, reported today that chef Gastón Acurio, known for his Peruvian cuisine, has launched his first restaurant in Paris, Manko. The talked-about restaurant debuted on in the Théâtre des Champs Elysées, on the lower level. Guests can expect a posh scene, complete with leather banquettes and velvet chairs. There will also be some Peruvian fabrics in sight. What to Order: The cuisine is Peruvian (historically influenced by Japan, Europe, China and Africa).

Brunch will be served with a fashion-week twist at Hotel Plaza Athénée. Home to the Dior Spa, Dior Institut, the hotel will be celebrating Paris Fashion Week with a three-course Dior Menu. The festive menu is inspired by Christian Dior’s cookbook, “La Cuisine Cousu-Main.”

The menu will be served during fashion week, from March 1 to March 9. The meal begins at €90 per person. Guests will be served blue lobster, remoulade celeriac and cocktail sauce. The main course includes stroganoff loin of veal from Correze, tiny artichokes and Montaigne potatoes. Guests will dine on milk chocolate Pompadour, exotic fruits, mango and vanilla coulis for dessert.

However, you can’t go out to eat in Paris without trying some of the Michelin starred restaurants. This year, Alain Ducasse at Plaza Athénée and Le Cinq at the Four Seasons Hotel George V were the only new restaurants to score three Michelin stars.
