Yannick Alléno: ambitious and top chef

Le Meurice, received its second, then third Michelin star, thanks to Yannick Alléno.  In 2008, Yannick Alléno founded his own group and multiplied the management of the finest restaurants (Cheval Blanc in Courchevel, Royal Mansour in Marrakech, One & Only The Palm Dubai, Shangri-La in Beijing, STAY in Taipei ...): 17 restaurants in the world.

Yannick Alléno

It is in 2012 that Yannick Alléno founded his first "Terroir Parisien",  a tribute to the region of Ile-de-France, where he grew up around the bistros run by his parents. This time, Yannick Alléno creates a natural and authentic place, which serves traditional cuisine made from simple local products and of quality. "Le Terroir Parisien" of Palais Brongniart opened in 2013.

A bistro revisited

Housed inside the Palais Brongniart the restaurant was decorated by Jean Michel Wilmotte. It is true that the place enjoys a conceptual design to fashion. It's interesting to discover and innovate, although a bit far from the Parisian bistro "well established." This does not detract from the experience that can be drawn.

For example, charcuterie; pâté, rillettes, garlic sausage, exquisite chicken liver cream, cooked ham can be eaten at the counter, specially designed for these classics of Lyon, and are served on a board with a baguette and pickles.

The "bar rillette" offers creative variations of chicken, tuna or salmon rillettes (dinner only).

A large board lists some of the products chosen from the best artisans of Ile-de-France (Gilles Vérot famous for its charcuterie, Yves-Marie Le Bourdonnec, butcher and master of the hamburger according to the NY Times, Marc Surgis organic watercress producer ...)

It is also possible, as it is fashionable now, to enjoy the spectacle of the kitchen. 


Expect to spend at least 40 € per person including a starter, main course and dessert, and quantities are similar to the gourmet restaurant than traditional cuisine. "Chez Yannick Alléno" is a historical and designated place.

We suggest you to taste the daily special for lunch, which at € 15, is still a way to go to the basics for an experience out of the ordinary.
