Du­casse Takes to the Seine

Where Paris - - Dining -

He is one of France’s, and the world’s, most ad­mired chefs, and now Alain Du­casse has taken his tal­ents to the wa­ters, or more ac­cu­rately, to the River Seine. Du­casse sur Seine shows off the chef’s tal­ents while show­ing off the equally im­pres­sive sites of the French cap­i­tal. Docked just be­neath the Eif­fel Tower, Du­casse sur Seine in­vites you to step onto a won­der­ful culi­nary ex­pe­ri­ence aboard the first elec­tric river cruise in the city. The restau­rant serves French cui­sine with a touch of moder­nity seen in dishes such as the chilled lob­ster en­trée driz­zled with a coral vi­nai­grette or the pan-seared sea bass served with a tangy sauce. Veg­e­tar­i­ans are equally spoiled with the chef’s sig­na­ture Cookpot of sea­sonal veg­eta­bles served on a bed of spelt. The high­light ac­com­pa­ny­ing your din­ner is of course Paris’s gor­geous mon­u­ments that are beau­ti­fully served as the per­fect back­drop, with the Notre Dame Cathe­dral, Musée d’Or­say and Pont Neuf only some of the ma­jes­tic at­trac­tions align­ing the River Seine and seen as the boat glides along qui­etly. Reser­va­tions are highly rec­om­mended. – S.I.
