Besides its wonderful rooms, the Burgundy Paris also has a stylish and elegant restaurant, the Baudelaire, where the chefs Pierre Rigothier and Julien Chamblas run the kitchen with taste and class. Closed in August for a luxurious makeover, the restaurant will re-open its doors on August 31st. An opportunity for the restaurant to present its fabulous new look, and for you to discuss the great poet whose name it bears, Charles Baudelaire.
Baudelaire – from Burgundy to Paris
It is indeed no coincidence that the restaurant is named after one constantly attracted to the ‘Flowers of Evil’. Fleeing his creditors, the poet had numerous addresses in Paris and 8, rue Duphot was the one of his most loved. The address was a ‘furnished house’ at the time when its furniture and property was placed for sale in 1867. It was presented, by the poet in its writings as ‘one of those places (…) where you discover that you are arrived’.
A tribute to the senses
Armed with this beautiful heritage and to highlight the stunning creations of its star chefs, the hotel has decided to appeal to creator Patrick Juliot, whose unique furniture reflects the spirit of elegance and modernity that you can find in the Burgundy Paris’ rooms and suites and which suits perfectly to the dishes served at the restaurant Le Baudelaire.
The glitzy chandeliers illuminate furniture with clean lines. Shimmering fabrics and velvet cushions harmonize with the sensuality of the natural beech chairs. You can except an elegant and stylish space that will appeal to gourmands of all ages. Meanwhile, in the kitchen, you can imagine the bustle and vibrance as seafood is prepared, brown the shallots, capers left to marinate and chanterelles sautéed. An atmosphere of luxury and calm, of sensuality and voluptuousness that would have felt just like home to the great Charles.
