Le Ciel de Paris: A Visual and Savory Experience

We all know France has an amazing cuisine. That is why when my husband and I planned our honeymoon/vacation with Paris as one of the stops, we know we must search for good French food. Our stay in Paris was meant to be during Christmas time. Just like many cities in the world, the city only has limited places open during Christmas day. I learned that, while some culture indulge on their night before Christmas feast, the French gather up for Christmas lunch. And so that’s what we did. Although, while my husband and I traditionally feast during Christmas Eve, we also treated ourselves with an amazing dinner at Brasserie Thoumieux on the 24th.

Restaurants that are open during the 25th often only offers a prix fix menu. I’ve researched high and low on what to look for, for our Christmas lunch and prices vary in amount from 80 euro to 500 euro per person. Le Ciel de Paris provided a median price. Located at the top of Tour Montparnasse, riding the high speed elevator up for over 30 seconds is a sign that this is definitely high up top. Le Ciel de Paris provided not only amazing food but superb view too. It has a trendy bar, beautiful interior in dark graphic lines, and a staff that cares. I will let the photos speak for itself.

Foie gras to start with. Must have quality foie gras while in Paris.

I like the nicely designed dishes they have. Not to mention those two treats that came with my tea; I actually requested for more.

Hubby got the canard (duck). And I personally do not eat duck, but wow! This was cooked to perfection. So delicate and the flavour was astounding. It made an impression to my husband as one of his favorite dishes in Paris.

I opted for the sea bass. The foam, the clams, the plating- my stomach thanked me for sure for having such good food.

You end with a dessert, of course. I felt like a creme brûlée at that time. And this rich, buttery, sweet thing made me want more.

All while devouring this, of course we had wine. What’s a meal in France without wine right? So for a unique view and experience, and if treating yourself is not a problem, consider Le Ciel de Paris for your next dinner or lunch and make a reservation. Afterwards, tour the 15th arrondisment and enjoy more of what Paris has to offer.
