La Grenouille was founded in December 1962 amidst a severe blizzard and a strike in the newspaper industry. But from that day on, an array of stars brought their glamour to La Grenouille. Notables over the years included Frank Sinatra, Placido Domingo, Sean Connery, Mick Jagger, Madonna, and Elton John. The atmosphere is romantic, with golden lights, and flourishing flowers everywhere. Expect to delve into the quiet opulence of traditional haute French cuisine: Steak Tartare with fennel salad, Foie Gras Terrine, signature Bouillabaisse, and Oxtail Bourgogne.
With a never-ending commitment to exquisite cuisine and unparalleled service, La Grenouille deserves its accolades.
