Christian Dior Pop Up Restaurant

Dior Restaurant

Last summer whilst on vacation in Saint Tropez I happened upon a chic courtyard restaurant within the beautiful Christian Dior resort flagship store, a three-story 18th century residence presiding over its tranquile garden along the Place des Lices. Not quite sure whether this was an exclusive event, I boldly wandered in and discovered that this was in fact a pop-up restaurant, open to all, during the spring/summer months! Without hesitation, I made plans to return the following evening…

Open from morning to evening, the relaxing ambiance is accompanied by live jazz musicians and perfectly groomed waiters who seem to glide from table to table with all the grace of a Christian Dior catwalk model. And then there’s the food… a wonderfully gourmet summer menu created by 3-star Michelin chef Yannick Alléno.

I chose the Penne with basil, country ham and parmesan shavings with a large glass of white wine whilst my dinner date delighted in a tagliatelle main course and to finish on a sweet note, we chose a selection of the D’Choux, a variety of tiny puff pastries filled with flavoured crème pâtissière, which arrive as a selection of four each with its own gold-leaf letter spelling out DIOR… the little choux were fluffy and airy, definitely the most perfect way to end a wonderful evening and I was thrilled to learn these miniature Dior treats are also available to take away!
