Spoon by Alain Ducasse

Located in the eclectic 2nd arrondissement next door to Paris Bourse (the historic Paris stock exchange), is Alain Ducasse’s Spoon Restaurant. Alain Ducasse is one of the most celebrated chef’s on the planet because of his eternal contribution to both the French cuisine and the culinary world as a whole. A spectacular chef and a brilliant businessman, Ducasse and his enterprise operate 24 restaurants across 7 countries, boasting 18 Michelin stars combined across the board.

Spoon’s menu takes you on a journey around the world, celebrating grand culinary traditions from the territories of Mexico, China, England, Tahiti and more. The latter is a unique approach for Ducasse as my association of the Chef has always been with French cuisine. Nevertheless the experience did not disappoint and at a fair price as well.
