PARIS—The prestigious Hilton Paris Opera, which celebrates its first anniversary this month, and the organic restaurant chain, Le Pain Quotidien, announce the opening of the first Le Pain Quotidien within a hotel. The new restaurant, located on the ground floor of Hilton Paris Opera, seats 80 guests and offers a diverse menu, suitable for hotel guests as well as Parisians and travelers visiting the Saint-Lazare area.
Through this unprecedented collaboration, Le Pain Quotidien is now strategically located near the Gare Saint-Lazare, the Opera, and the local department stores that attract nearly 70,000 visitors daily. Additionally, Hilton Paris Opera now offers Parisians and hotel guests a food and beverage outlet that is based on a tradition of eating well, which complements the hotel’s two other dining options, Le Grand Salon and Le Petit Bar.
“By welcoming an iconic brand to the Hilton Paris Opera portfolio, the hotel continues to offer its customers and neighbors new and exciting options. In this culture of healthy, balanced eating, Le Pain Quotidien is a seamless addition to our hotel as the brand exhibits only the best in quality. We are delighted to partner with Le Pain Quotidien to expand our food and beverage offerings, and most importantly to support the revitalization of the Saint-Lazare neighbourhood,” says Sofia L. Vandaele, general manager of the Hilton Paris Opera.
The Le Pain Quotidien franchise remains true to its original concept, which has attracted guests for over 25 years. The nearly 1,600 square-foot Hilton Paris Opera location also hosts the restaurant’s signature wooden furniture, communal table and the brand’s organic market which sells items such as spreads, jams, cooking oils, salt, pepper, cook books, coffees and teas. The menu highlights organic products and includes brunch, salads, soups, pastries, sharing platters, and more. To celebrate the opening of Le Pain Quotidien Saint Lazare at Hilton Paris Opera, a complimentary glass of prosecco will be offered with brunch on Saturdays and Sundays through April 30.
“Our mission is to offer our customers a ‘home away from home’ feeling, keeping our values in mind when matching our DNA with a neighborhood, its residents and visitors. We have been able to continue to develop opportunistically, so when the hotel’s General Manager Sofia L. Vandaele approached us about opening Le Pain Quotidien in the Hilton Paris Opera, we did not hesitate. We are excited to partner with a brand whose team shares the same commitment of making each customer’s experience a memorable one,” says Anne-Gabrielle Verdier, CEO France Le Pain Quotidien.
