Guy Savoy Moves His Paris Restaurant on May 19

He drops his Arc de Triomphe location of 27 years in favor of the French mint with more space and a kitchen three times as big as his original.

Guy Savoy is on the move. After 28 years, the French chef moves his Restaurant Guy Savoy in Paris from its home near the Arc de Triomphe to a "4,300-square-foot top-floor space" at the Monnaie de Paris — the French mint.

The move becomes official on Tuesday, May 19, but friends, fans and purveyors have treated this time as a chance to tour the original restaurant, try dishes such as the artichoke and black truffle soup that earned him three Michelin stars and sample dishes on practice lunch and dinner menus, according to the New York Times.

Once the move is complete, diners will enter by climbing a "red-carpeted stone staircase decorated with medallions and laurel wreaths. A series of dining rooms in shades of anthracite and brown are set along windows 10 feet high that offer a view of the Seine."

Savoy’s 35 chefs and kitchen staff are most excited about a kitchen nearly three times as large as the original as well as new equipment.

Savoy’s former location turns into a seafood restaurant in June, and Savoy himself plans to open "brasserie MetaLcafé in an interior courtyard at the Monnaie" next year.

Savoy already has Restaurant Guy Savoy at Caesars Palace with the only Krug Room in the United States. That’s not going anywhere.
