A Parisian public house with local pride
Taking its name from the shady square across the street where Louis XVI is believed to have been briefly interred, this former bar and tobacco shop now prides itself on being an authentic French public house, or brasserie. Run by Daïna Savesi with her father and a dedicated, mostly female staff, Le Louis XVI serves a short menu that pays homage to local producers and traditional agriculture practices in the Ile-de-France region. Over the last fifteen years or so, Daïna has become friends with many of her suppliers, as well as her customers and neighbors, whether they are shopkeepers or performers at one of the many local theaters. “It brings me so much joy, just thinking about what the soil can give us, when it is cultivated by the right people”, says Daïna, who rightly describes Le Louis XVI as a mission-driven restaurant.
