16th Arrondissement Restaurants
19 Ave. Kléber, 16th
Tucked inside the Peninsula Hotel, this is as elegant as it gets for dim sum in Paris, with a dining room beautifully decked out in Chinese silks and an extensive menu of Cantonese treats, some of which verge on the extravagant: Just try the caviar filled lobster dim-sum to get an idea. With famed Hong Kong chef Ma Wing Tak at the helm, this is typical Cantonese food made for refined palates and with the best produce Paris has to offer. The restaurant also boasts a couple of private dining options for really special occasions, one of which has a window right into the kitchen where the Dim Sum is prepared fresh for the table.
10 Ave. d'Léna, 16th
The menu is plucked directly out of Southeast China, showcasing picks like wok-fried pigeon, steamed sea scallops with vermicelli, and perfect salmon, served with shredded fruit. The dining room is gilded, ornate, and luxe, which is exactly what you’d expect from the Shangri-La Hotel.
