Le Pré-Catelan, a gastronomic meal in the middle of the woods

It is hard to imagine that within a short distance of the busy Champs Elysees lays a real peace haven where gourmets can enjoy a break that is both gastronomic and peaceful. Nested in the heart of the Bois de Boulogne, the Pre-Catelan restaurant is housed in the sumptuous Napoleon III pavilion which offers a most pleasant terrace and garden.

Chef Frédéric Anton is in charge of the restaurant. He was trained by one of the most iconic French Chefs, Joël Robuchon. His cooking has a reputation for being extremely sophisticated yet simple, offering an amazing moment to all food lovers, whatever their expertise in this area may be. He likes to cook simple and basic produces and makes the most out of them by delicately enhancing their flavors.

Anton became the chef of the Pre-Catelan in 1997 and earned his third Michelin Star ten years later, in 2007. He also won the coveted title of “Meilleur Ouvrier de France” (Best Craftsman) in 2000.

Some of his specialties include:

– Sea Urchins

– Lobster from Brittany served with seaweed stuffing

– Bone Marrow

– Langoustines cooked with paprika and caviar
