Hot Eats in Paris: Mini Palais in the Grand Palais

December 4, 2007 By:Mary Winston Nicklin

Mini PalaisThis summer, a trendy new restaurant opened its doors in a wing of the Grand Palais. And it's branded MINI-- as in, like, um, the car. Sprawling under the arcade's columns, the restaurant is all about paradox, starting with the name. During the weekends, a DJ spins trendy tracks which vibrate through the classic colonnade. "Mini palais, maxi chic," the restaurant features innovative small plates and lighter fare from star chef Gilles Choukroun (of Michelin-starred Angl'Opera Restaurant). Inside, you'll find Baccarat light fixtures and a cool, loungy vibe. AdAge explains that the MINI branding is subtle: the neon sign in the lobby, the MINI logo on the menu and on the black t-shirts worn by staff, and a couple of Union Jacks emblazoned behind the bar.
