Alain Passard’s fare pays homage to the simple pleasure of the humble vegetable, with no red meat on the menu. With a beautiful but understated interior the focus is on the food, and L’Arpege has maintained its high ranking as one of the world’s best restaurants.

An all-vegetable meal at L’Arpege is a must eat for Dan Barber (Chef/Co-Owner, Blue Hill and Blue Hill at Stone Barns).

“My meal at L’Arpege is in my top 10 for all time. We had the 12 course tasting menu, 80% of which was vegetarian, and I was knocked OUT by how flavorful it was. Masterful.” – Stephanie March (Actress)
