Le 39V

Le 39V on 39 Avenue George V is sleek and chic restaurant and sits on the rooftop of a beautiful building behind a discreet front door. 

 

Up the elevator we go…

 

Walking in the restaurant (from the private elevator) you meet a spacious bar, a terrace that sits in the middle, on one side a half circle shaped dining room greeting diners (mostly business men and women and the likes of those in Fashion) who eat and on the other side of the terrace, the kitchen – all paned in floor to ceiling windows.

 

Frédéric Vardon heads the contemporary French kitchen with a strong culinary background with two Alains: Alain Chapel (deceased in the 1990s) and Alain Ducasse – both 2 French 3 Michelin star Chefs.

 

 

 

A la Carte choices…

Entrées

Tourteau, Macédoine de légumes, pousses et germes d’hiver d’agrumes – Minced crab with winter greens and citrus fruits

 

It was very light and refreshing; beautiful in color 

 

 

Salade de légumes et fruits, jus acidulé

Fruit and vegetable salad with a light tangy dressing

 

 

 

Foie gras de canard des Landes, au naturel, condiment (pommes, coings et raisins)

Foie gras of the Landes region with apple, quince and raisins

 

 

Well seasoned foie gras, I loved the little fruit molded at the top of the plate 

 

 

With surprisingly sweet bread that went very well

 

 

 

Plats

Tartare de boeuf taillé au couteau, pommes allumettes

Beef tartare cut by hand, french fries

 

 

 

Veau fermier, macaroni au vieux comté et blanquette de légumes, jus d’un roti

 

A very classic French dish

 

 

 

 

 

 

The dishes are not pricey but the restaurant’s prix-fixe menu at 39 euros (or 49 euros with dessert) is a popular deal among regulars here as it changes daily. 

 

Foie gras with minced chicken topped with winter greens and alphalpha leaves

 

 

 

 

Roasted pollock fish on a bed of sauteed spinach and diced baby tomatoes

 

 

 

Dessert? Why Not…and some free mignardises

 

 

 


The wine list features more than 100 references from all the regions of France. For a classy lunch or even dinner in Paris with amazing views, come by Le 39V to rub shoulders with beautiful people.
