Le Dôme, Montparnasse's oldest institution

One of the major fish restaurants in Paris, Le Dôme gets an overhaul thanks to its new Japanese chef, while retaining its indomitable spirit.

Simone de Beauvoir, Jean-Paul Sartre, Picasso, Lenin and Trotsky… In their time, all these famous figures were regulars of the Dôme, founded in Montparnasse in 1898. Today, the institution has retained its Art Deco feel, just like the other brasseries designed by Slavik: orange bench seats, large wooden counter, colourful stained-glass windows… The gold-leaf covered ceiling, contemporary chandeliers and winter garden are all recently added touches to breathe new life into the restaurant, whilst retaining its original soul.
Highly talented Japanese chef Yoshihiko Miura, one of the few chefs to hold a licence in “fugu” – the poisonous blowfish that is sublime in sashimi, as long as you are an expert in preparing it – has already put his personal stamp on the dishes. The modernised menu changes every day, subject to product availability, although the fish stew and sole meunière remain hallmarks. The eclectic wine list will satisfy even the most demanding customers. To end on a sweet touch, the irreplaceable Napoleon millefeuille will delight those with a sweet tooth. Uncommon sense of good service rounds up the charm of an unforgettable moment.
