Champeaux : A contemporary brasserie set in its time

The new Alain Ducasse establishment in Paris

Alain Ducasse and Olivier Maurey, creator of restaurant Mini Palais and other Parisian haunts, has imagined "The Brasserie of the 21st Century", located in the heart of the 1st district of Paris under the Canopée in Forum des Halles. To Alain Ducasse: « We envisioned this space as an original version of a contemporary brasserie. »

A bit of history...Les Halles, a great market hall located in the area called «Champeaux », appears in the 12th century on the orders of Louis VI. A few centuries later, the « Petits Champs », located on the city outskirts lend their name to a brasserie on Place de la Bourse, founded in 1800. The writer Émile Zola features the area in the opening scene of his novel L’Argent (Money). In his old menu collection, Alain Ducasse found a Champeaux menu dated from 15th December 1900. 

At Champeaux, everyone is free to create their own personal experience. A wide-open and sun-drenched space which live all day long and situated opposite Saint-Eustache church. For lunch on the go, to enjoy a large feast or snack during an aperitif, the brasserie welcomes everyone, from 11:30 am to midnight.

Champeaux revives the most beautiful brasserie cuisine classics, using the best seasonal ingredients. The soufflé, the restaurant’s signature-dish, perfectly embodies this faithful to tradition and eminently contemporary approach. Chef Kévin Kowal offers an elegant interpretation of this monument to French cuisine, with both sweet and savoury variation.

A display board, (8.60 meters long by 1.40 meters high) similar to those in railway stations and airports, scrolls - in interactive connection with the kitchen - the menu, cooking times, batches of soufflés, or even the wines of the day...

The most skilled craftsmen, bespoke furniture, noble materials and haute couture detailing, designers group Cigüe has bestowed a soul to the existing industrial structure of this large open space, on a sunny terrace overlooking the Nelson Mandela garden, almost four hectares of greenery in the heart of Paris. The view offers a unique perspective of the Saint-Eustache Church.

With a capacity of 14 guests, le salon privé overlooks La Canopée’s great forecourt. The two tables of this space are rare pieces that Alain Ducasse found at an antique shop. For a century, they were used in the refectory of the Lycée Lakanal, in Sceaux. They bear the scars of time in the irregularities and wear of their edges, completely notched by students’ cutlery, doubtlessly anxious for their lunch!

Orchestrated by Alain Ducasse restaurants’ head sommelier, Gérard Margeon, the wine list is dynamic and oriented toward Europe. "No less than 70 references are found here, and all can change at the drop of a hat. In the organic and biological category, a white, a red and a champagne will be offered every week.
Mixology is also at the heart of Champeaux. The Canadian head barmaid Marjolaine Arpin reinterprets classic cocktails, with a self-confessed preference for bitters. Taking her inspiration on the history of the area and the Champeaux of the old days. She suggests a few unique and sophisticated signature cocktail.

From lunch to late dinner, the restaurant atmosphere changes as the hours go by. Malik Alary, DJ and sound designs with a sharp musical selection, creating a singular atmosphere and identity.
