The 128-year-old property makes a good first impression with the gleaming black and white marble, art deco features, custom-designed furniture by French interior designer Pierre Yovanovitch, black bubble lighting, chrome accent pieces, and fresh flowers. Hotel Marignan boasts contemporary luxury with the ‘70s inspired interior design theme. The standout pieces are the designer red sofa that dominates minimalist-feel lobby and artworks that the owner of Marignan, Nathalie Richard, carefully selected.
Pierre Yovanovitch used oak wood, metal, velvet, leather, and marble to create very modern and hip hotel, it is luxurious and yet unpretentious.
We came to discover Marignan‘s new restaurant Limon, loved for its delightfully fresh cuisine which is very delicious and surprisingly healthy! Located in Paris‘s chic eighth arrondissement, Limon is only 15 minutes walk away from the Arc de Triomphe. Some years ago, Christian Dior opened up shop near by at 30 Avenue Montaigne, and after that every major European fashion house followed. The Grand Palais is steps away, as well as many top galleries.
Limon is a fashionable restaurant that is classy yet laid back, sophisticated yet informal.
This hip restaurant offers casual all-day dining, and talented chef Adrien Milliand excels in traditional French cuisine with subtle and creative flavors, revisited Latin America style with some dishes around citrus and others subtly raised with different peppers, spices, oils. Expect to find the “in crowd” hanging out at this fabulous restaurant sipping swanky cocktails.
For starter, we suggest Forgotten tomatoes selection with burrata from Apulia, “Laughing tiger” or Shrimp ravioli with green curry. Fashionela’s team tried mouth-watering and infinitely tasty Marignan Burger and French fries, and Fish of the day with summer vegetables, and citruses vierge. Marignan Burger is one of the best we have ever tasted in Paris and the flavors of the second meal came through clean and simple, pairing nicely with the fish, and resulted in a perfect summer dinner. We also sipped made-to-order cocktails, designed to reflect our favorite tastes. You may want to try one of the dozen kinds of mojitos. For dessert we ordered Two chocolates fondant but there is Nectarine Pavlova with Rhubarb tarlet and Strawberry soup with herbs of the field. There is also a wide selection of champagnes and some exclusive finds such as Bruno Paillard NPU Extra Brut 1999, a superb champagne with strong character for connoisseurs. The wine can be enjoyed on its own, or with food (excluding desserts). A wide, varied and sometimes surprising wine list will satisfy the most exquisite tastes.
Limon is indeed a reference to citrus fruits, which chef Adrien Milliand has made a specialty of. The choice of citrus fruit gives a zest of freshness and a touch of liveliness to dishes.
Limon may well be the coolest eatery we’ve found in the French capital. After dinner check out the mesmerizing rooftop bar that offers romantic glimpses of the Eiffel Tower.
Why should you still look for a beautiful gastronomic address in the Golden Triangle when the Limon awaits you with open arms?
