The new Tour d’Argent has opened its doors

After 16 months of renovation, the Tour d’Argent has reopened its doors with three new features in addition to its gourmet restaurant: a ground-floor bar, a rooftop and an apartment for overnight stays. All of which adds to the buzz surrounding a Parisian institution founded in the 16th century!

To “bring it into the 21st century”, while drawing on the restaurant’s “rich heritage” and “preserving the landmarks for which it is famous”. This was architect Franklin Azzi’s brief for the new Tour d’Argent…

After almost a year and a half of transformations, Paris’ oldest and perhaps most famous gastronomic restaurant is once again shining in the firmament of taste buds!


One star and an exceptional panorama


On the sixth floor, regulars can find the gastronomic restaurant in a revamped form. They can still enjoy the delights concocted by chef Yannick Franques and the breathtaking view over the Seine and Notre-Dame. In 1936, when it was last renovated, the restaurant moved up from the cow floor to the sixth floor, offering guests an exceptional panorama. And while it now boasts just one Michelin star (down from three in 1933, two in 1996 and one since 2006), it remains the setting for an exceptional dining experience.
