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.
From March 21 until July 09, 2017, the Petit Palais presents “From Watteau to David, the Horvitz Collection”, an exhibition that spotlights the collection of the American collector Jeffrey Horvitz.
Featuring some 200 works, which vary from paintings to sculptures and drawings, the collection assembles works by popular French artists who marked the 18th century including Watteau, Boucher, Greuze, Fragonard, and David.
“From Watteau to David, the Horvitz Collection” is one of the exhibition that you should not miss this year, if you’re staying in Paris. So, don’t hesitate to visit the Petit Palais to explore this amazing and important collection!
