Discover the restaurant
Not far from the Champs-Élysées and the Hôtel de Matignon, in the heart of the extremely chic 8th arrondissement of Paris, a truly unique gourmet restaurant can be found: La Scène. Its renowned chef and owner Stéphanie Le Quellec presides over the restaurant in a plush and elegant setting reminiscent of a small theatre. After descending the few steps to reach the intimate atmosphere of the restaurant’s dining room, it becomes clear just how well this epicurean address lives up to its name. In the open kitchen, the chef directs her brigade, who silently prepare for the approaching performance. With menus presented in several acts — up to ten, depending on the mood — guests at La Scène become fully immersed in a spectacle unlike any other. It is one that pays homage to French producers, whose riches Stéphanie Le Quellec exquisitely brings to life. By revealing the ingredients that move her and by cooking responsibly, her style and talent are subtly expressed from the very first savoury notes. They continue to shine all the way through to the deliciously sweet finale, where the expertise of pastry chef Pierre Chirac comes to the fore. Stéphanie Le Quellec and her brilliant troupe, including a remarkably impressive team of waiters, succeed in conveying the beauty of emotion in a masterpiece that marvellously brings together high gastronomy, refinement and simplicity.
