Les Ambassadeurs

The dining salon at Hôtel de Crillon’s Les Ambassadeurs is a historic Parisian temple of gastronomy. Once the ballroom of an 18th-century private palace, the restaurant is now run by 28-year-old chef Christopher Hache, one of the youngest culinary artists to head a Paris establishment of Les Ambassadeurs’ stature. His dishes are refreshingly straightforward, though each is enhanced by what he calls “a touch of eccentricity.” He serves roasted langoustines, for instance, with fried fennel and a zesty yuzu sauce. Specialties: Rack of lamb wrapped in ultrafine rice noodles, plated with Provençal eggplant on a bed of nutty quinoa, and pot-roasted foie gras and vegetable casserole.
