Choose Le Chardenoux for a Bastille restaurant helmed by a celebrity chef
In France, chef Cyril Lignac is a household name and is known for his on-screen charisma in shows like Top Chef and Le Meilleur Pâtissier (France’s equivalent of The Great British Bake Off). Lignac has even been described as the French Jamie Oliver. The chef has a portfolio of gourmet pastry shops and restaurants including Le Chardenoux, a century-old bistro that he took over around a decade ago. After a year of renovations, Le Chardenoux 2.0 reopened in January 2019 to strong reviews, thanks to a fresh coat of paint and a Japanese-influenced, seafood-heavy menu that includes scallops with caramelised miso and sea urchin in bonito broth.
