The Vrinat family, who owns the restaurant, welcomes its guests in a 19th century mansion house built by the Duke of Morny and located at the heart of the prestigious Champs-Elysées district in Paris. Taillevent is today a symbol of French elegance and "art de vivre”. Traditional cuisine has been revisited since 2002 by the Chef Alain Solivérès. The wine team, led by Jean-François Le Moine, offers a selection of over 2,400 wine references. In the dining room, Jean-Marie Ancher, the Director, and his team pay particular and discreet attention to each customer. Many famous people of this world have at some time been to this essential venue: Mikhail Gorbachev, Salvador Dali, Richard Nixon and more recently Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt have all sat down to dine at number 15 rue Lamennais.
