Benoit is the only Parisian Bistro to get a star by the Guide Michelin. The restaurant is also the only traditional Bistro cuisine in the heart of Paris. Benoit Matray - the grandfather of Michel Petit – created the restaurant in 1912. After many successful years, the owners sold the Benoit restaurant to Alain Ducasse, the famous holder of 21 Michelin Stars. The restaurant gained international reputation when in 2005 a Benoit branch appeared in one of the most famous neighborhoods of Tokyo, as Alain Ducasse exported the bistro to Japan.
When you enter Benoit you’re greeted by a warm and comfortable atmosphere. From tile to woodwork, red velvet seats to brass, lightings of the bar, to huge mirrors and art paintings, the entire decoration gives a peaceful feeling and a sensation of time travel. On the upper floor, a private room with a large oval table welcomes guests. The paintings, decorative tiles and the fireplace will make it feel just like home.
