Chef Frédéric Anton (three Michelin stars at the parisians restaurant Le Pré Catelan), focuses on nobles products of the French territory (like crab, truffle, shrimps, farm poultry), creating dishes that interact with the architecture of the Eiffel tower itself. A private lift takes directly to the restaurant, where at lunch, the proposal is a single three-course menu (105 euro per person), while at dinner the choise is between a five-course or a seven-course menu (respectively 190 euro and 230 euro). «Be able to express myself on the most iconic monument of France is a unique experience in the life of a chef!», said Anton. How could we blame him!
