French chef Yannick Alléno — who was recently accused by former employees of harassment — opened a new restaurant in Paris earlier this month. According to a press release, it is called Stay and it is Alléno's third restaurant in the French capital alongside Pavillon Ledoyen and Alléno Paris. The chef has already opened outlets of the restaurant in Dubai, Taipai, and Beijing.
Located within the Hotel Sofitel Le Faubourg, the restaurant offers French dishes as well as those "inspired by the chef's own travel experiences." This means items like monkfish cheek tagine, red chicken curry with cardamom rice, and beef filet with matchstick fries. Stay also features a "pastry library" where desserts like hazelnut gavotte and banana croustillant are displayed in windows. Diners are also given a chance "to put their own signature" on their dessert choice by "picking the final ingredient" to complete it. For those dining in large groups, there is a "sharing table" which features a customized menu and wines by the magnum.
Alléno will also oversee all food and beverage operations for the hotel including room service and the hotel's bar, Bar du Faubourg. There will be an all-day menu plus cocktails "inspired by iconic fashion designers" like Coco Chanel, Yves Saint-Laurent, and Jean-Paul Gaultier. Stay Paris is open seven days a week and hopefully, it will be free of controversy and allegations.
