The Asian is a multi-concept two-floor restaurant / bistro / bar that hopes to help you chill out while tasting a selection of dishes from Thailand, Vietnam and Indonesia.
Care has been taken with the subtle lighting, and there are authentic Asian elements in the décor that try to suggest the east without bludgeoning you over the head with it!
You can drink a quiet tea in the afternoon or sample a cocktail in the evening at the bar, have a quick lunch in the brasserie, eat heartily in the evening in the restaurant (with its open kitchen), or even brunch there on a Sunday.
The music is soft and the prices reasonable (for the area: this is - after all - just off the Champs Elysées). If you've experienced enough French food already and would like an exotic detour, Asian could be a good choice.
One of the best attractions in Paris during Christmas festivities is the Champ Elysées Market. For the holiday season, the avenue looks like a Christmas village.
Christmas market on the Champs Elysées stretches from Concorde Square to the Rond-Point des Champs-Elysées. This year more than 200 chalets will welcome you to for shopping for souvenirs, gifts, traditional crafts and gourmet products.
Just stop for a vin chaud, or hot mulled wine. The Christmas market is opened from 10 AM to midnight.
