This is a “master stroke“1 for Samuel Cavagnis, who opened his own restaurant ten years ago. Located near the Place de la Bourse, in the 2nd arrondissement of Paris, Le Versance is today awarded with 2 toques Gault & Millau.
All the team warmly welcomes you in this “intimate and elegant setting”2 where “exposed beams and stain-glassed windows”2 coexist with design furniture. A “romantic and chic” atmosphere, perfect for an intimate dinner for two. However, nothing stops you from enjoying the “simple and refined cuisine” 3 of the Chef for other events : the lounge dedicated to apéritif lends itself to evenings with friends whereas the private lounge upstairs will be more appropriate for business lunches. During summer, you could also enjoy the sun on the elegant terrasse located in the pedestrian street.
In the kitchen, the Chef Samuel Cavagnis offer you globetrotters’ dishes. Effectively, this one travelled all over the world during several years – from Chicago to Vietnam, through Australia, Lebanon or even Taiwan3 – to meet worldwide cultures and flavors. And after his “atypical career shaped from all corners of the world”2, he finally decided to settle in Paris. Now, he creats dishes with “French roots tinted of exotism”4, between modern and tradition.
Endowed with an remarkable cellar, Le Versance also proposes you more than 120 references, “from exceptional grand Crus to suprising wines”3. And now, you can find on the wine list our Pouilly-Fumé Les Pierres de Pierre and Les Angelots as well as our Sancerre Rouge Thauvenay. These wines will perfectly match the “sensitive and inventive cuisine”2 of the Chef Cavagnis : Blue lobster rosted with curry and its sauce with Vin Jaune, Calf sweetbreads and its stilton cake and pears with spices, or even a fantastic dessert offering a variety of apples nuances4.
The favourite quote of the Chef Samuel Cavagnis : “Inviting someone is taking care of his hapiness during all the time he is in your household.” (Brillat-Savarin).
