Review on Restaurant Le Céladon
Le Céladon restaurant is set in The Hôtel Westminster Opera Paris which is located on the prestigious Rue de la Paix, a short stroll away from the Place Vendôme, the Opera, the Tuileries Gardens and the Louvre. With its Hausmannian façade, it has been a hotel since 1809 and takes its name from the Duke of Westminster, for whom this was a Paris residence in the 19th century and indeed the hotel still plays host to the current Duke of Westminster.
The refined décor of this Michelin starred restaurant has been designed by Pierre-Yves Rochon and the dining room is French Regency in style with oriental influences, set amongst damask drapes with pale green Celadon porcelain, paintings, drawings and antique books. This is a perfect setting to showcase the subtle and creative cuisine of Christophe Moisand, former Sous Chef at Meurice and winner of the Trophy le Coq Saint-Honoré.
Menus change according to the market, the availability and the season, in winter there could be special oysters crusted with ginger or Saint Jacques scallops roasted in the shell with lentils and chestnuts. Spring might see prawns roasted on a skewer with lemon grass or fricassée of pork cooked with sage and summer poached eggs with lightly fried cream and finally autumn a cream soup and crêpes with 'Paimpol' white beans and black pasta. Artfully displayed desserts could include small bananas roasted with spices and pineapple marinated with Sichuan pepper or saffron biscuit with candied mango. At the weekend, the restaurant becomes Le Petit Céladon and there is a more informal relaxed atmosphere to cater for families, together with a special children's menu.
