Countryside chic in the heart of Paris!
Please note that this initiative is now over.
Located between Place Vendôme and the Jardin des Tuileries in Paris' first arrondissement, The Westin Paris – Vendôme has transformed its terrace into a vegetable garden with herbs, summer vegetables, flowers, and citrus fruit trees. This unique leafy green setting has a real feel of the countryside in the heart of Paris, making it the perfect place to recharge your batteries!
Open from every day, between 1st June and the end of September, from 9 a.m. until half past midnight, the new terrace has a lunch and dinner restaurant menu in keeping with the summer season. Chilled soups, energising bowls and tasty grills will delight your taste buds and lift your spirits with the delicate scents of summer holidays.
Set apart by two green walls, high tables, comfortable chairs and pale wood swing seats, the lounge bar area offers a drinks menu, house cocktails and Veuve Clicquot champagne to provide refreshment and relaxation throughout the day. Several dishes and desserts from the restaurant menu are available from midday until 11.30 p.m., not forgetting the imaginative tapas on offer at aperitif time!
Inspired by the flavours of sun-kissed ingredients and the aromas of Mediterranean cooking, the highlights of the Potager Urbain restaurant menu created by Chef David Réal include:
Soup Time, a selection of three refreshing soups including an Andalusian Gazpacho with organic avocado, a chilled asparagus soup sprinkled with soft Broccio cheese and flavoured with saffron oil, and a chilled melon soup with fresh almonds and Iberian ham.
Starting at €19
The colourful bowls are packed with vitamins – the white bowl includes smoked or grilled chicken sprinkled with coconut shavings accompanied by a Swedish biscuit, the purple bowl includes salmon marinated in citrus fruits with fig, watermelon, rhubarb and crunchy red cabbage, and lastly the green vegetarian bowl includes broad beans, peas, seaweed and cucumber tartare and a vinaigrette with honey from the bees that reside on the roof of the hotel!
