Located in the hotel’s beautiful courtyard, La Cour Jardin welcomes guests for the summer, offering a new menu inspired by cuisine de soleil, which has been carefully curated with local, seasonal produce reflecting the colors and flavors of summer.

 

The new menu offers a variety of dishes, each designed to share, making La Cour Jardin the perfect spot for a relaxing lunch in the sun or a romantic dinner. Chefs Jean Imbert and Jocelyn Herland place seasonal flavor at the heart of the menu and draw inspiration from what nature does best in summer.

The menu showcases plant life in every shape and form, while collaborating with market gardeners, fishermen and farmers. The produce is carefully chosen to ensure the menu aligns with the seasons. Seasonal vegetables come directly from a family farm in central France, and tomatoes, aubergines, shoots, gem lettuces, courgette flowers and melons arrive from a vegetable garden located one hour from Paris.
