Le Petit Royal, the new Frankfurt’s French restaurant
Located in a hidden street of Frankfurt most popular financial district, Willy Brandt Platz, Le Petit Royal is definitely an hidden gem to discover. If you’ve heard about The Grill Royal (in Berlin), this restaurant is the smaller sibling and serves all of its big brother’s classics in addition to fine French cuisine and, let’s be honest Frankfurt was missing such a thing like it!
The restaurant boasts a menu of French classics, such as sea food, oysters, prawns, wines, tender meats, of course..cheese and moelleux au chocolat!
Great emphasis is placed on the quality of the products, and they even offer as side dishes delicious home-made sauces and seasonal vegetables Obviously, we loved every details!
If you want to experience, the fine french cuisine we would advise you to start with a 1/2 dozen of Oysters Fine de Claire, scallops or even a Ceviche pared with one of the extensive wine list.
But what takes them beyond classic French food is their impressive selection of meats imported from Ireland, USA, Spain and Australia. If that isn’t enough to convince you, their Kobe Beef, directly from Kobe, Japan is served with yuzu juice, fresh wasabi, ginger and soy is sourced and is simply De-li-cieux!
If you’re not sure where to start, feel free to ask for suggestions from the friendly waiters, they will be happy to help and offer you some wine pairing.
On to drinks, besides the extensive wine list at ‘Le Petit Royal’ restaurant, their whimsical bar next door, French Bento Bar is definitely worth a visit! The bar, run by Bar Chef Michael Nagy, is also inspired by French elegance with a Japanese touch. Cocktails infused with ingredients like Sake, hints of jasmine, safran and mandarin take you on an adventure elsewhere while being in Frankfurt.
Our favorite cocktail? The Butterfly (Sake, Anchan cordial, lemon and soda) and and Jasmi high (Gin asmin infused Gin, Lime, and Tonic) If you are a Whiskey lover, have a try to How to Kill a Horse (Rye, bourbon, cognac, maple syrup, bitters). Eitherway, Mixologist Michele will take great care of you once you’re here.
Ready for opulence, Art, French classics and a Japanese twist? Look no further than a night at Le Petit Royal and the French Bento bar!
