Sara was visiting from Philadelphia and brought summerwith her so M and I took her to the Terrace.
We began with Martini Bianco and Prosecco over ice-clean, fresh,and crisp.
Portions are generous, so Sara's slightly different salade nicoise (peas, pearl onions,quail eggs and no tomatoes) entrée was more copious than many first courses i've seen in this town.
Monika selected crab meat and pureed beets with thins slices of radishes-naturally slightly sweet and delicious.
Main courses were grilled gambas and pureed potatoes for Sara
and simple grilled dorado for M and moi-simply perfect.
Our wine was light red 2014 Clos de Cordelier-Saumur-Champigny-ideal for our seafood meal.
Chef Bonneville has done a superb job of making the Terrace a destination and not just a hotel restaurant. He is being rewarded with a complete redesign of the W lobby restaurant that will reopen in September 2016 with an exciting new menu.
The 8th floor terrace at the Hotel Warwick in Paris with views of the Eiffel Tower is now open for lunch and dinner. Or, stop for a relaxing coupe or a martini Royal (Martini Bianco and prosecco.)
Chef Ludovic Bonneville has just arrived from Orléans and can be found the open “kitchen” creating 39 euro menus (Entrée, plat et dessert ou fromage) from firm fish and T-Bones ideal for grilling. And the price stays the same for dinner!
It was opening day and the sun made an appearance. After the obligatory coupe de champagne I ordered the entrée du jour, a mousse de torteaux followed up by grilled maigre.
My colleague ordered the 450 gram T-Bone with roasted potatoes and we both drank a white from the southwest and with our refreshing, summery dessert of citrus dominated fruit salad, a Moscato from Mas Amiel.
