For a grand celebration or night to remember, Le Clarence is the perfect spot. Located in a 19th century mansion, the restaurant was opened by the owner of Chateau Haut-Brion, who wanted a setting worthy of his family’s legendary wines. Prince Robert de Luxembourg, whose grandfather Clarence Dillon bought the Haut Brion domaine almost a century ago, has transformed a splendid marble-clad mansion just across from the Grand Palais. The space evokes the atmosphere of a Bordeaux chateau, where diners feel like invited guests in the home of a warm and welcoming royal. The six-story townhouse’s salon and dining rooms have been furnished with the finest French fabrics, antiques, china and crystal—all selected by Prince Robert himself. For cuisine to suit the surroundings, he hired the talented two-Michelin-star chef Christophe Pelé (formerly of Ledoyen and the Bristol) to helm the kitchen. Rounding out the restaurant is one of France’s top wine lists, with wines from all over France as well as the special cave on property, which, of course, contains some very rare bottles of Haut-Brion. (In addition to the wood-paneled main restaurant, there are private, small dining rooms, which are perfect for small groups.)
