Nestled in the Hôtel Fouquet’s Barrière, La Petite Maison de Nicole is the Parisian version of the namesake restaurant in Nice.
Every evening the gallery at Fouquet’s restaurant takes on the famous Provencal restaurant’s colours & flavours.
Hôtel Fouquet’s version of La Petite Maison de Nicole in Paris was set up thanks to the friendship between restaurant owner Nicole Rubi and Dominique Desseigne, chairman of Lucien Barrière Hôtels & Casinos, who wished to give his Paris customers a taste of Provence. While focusing on its core leisure business, warmth, hospitality, a family atmosphere and generosity have always underpinned Lucien Barrière’s values, which are also shared by Nicole and her little houses.
La Petite Maison de Nicole bases its Mediterranean menu on authentic recipes, strictly controlled produce, a wide choice and generous helpings!
Jean-Yves Leuranguer – Meilleur Ouvrier de France (best craftsman of France) – and his brigade at the Hôtel Fouquet’s Barrière are well versed in Nicole’s family secrets to delight customers with light marrow flower fritters, small stuffed vegetables, whole roasted chickens to share, truffle scrambled eggs, fried local mullet, roasted royal Mediterranean lobster and calamaretti fritti (Italian fried squid)…
Claude Ducrozet, the hotel’s pastry chef has designed the dessert menu including a luxuriously naughty tiramisu with white chocolate mousse and seasonal fruit… to share with friends or gobble up yourself!
Every evening Fouquet’s side hall takes on the delightful look of La Petite Maison de Nicole, designed by Jacqueline Morabito, Nicole Rubi’s long-standing friend. The decor changes thanks to a clever curtain system which reveals the particular atmosphere of La Petite Maison de Nicole… until late into the night!
Paintings of film stars by Dutch artist Hayo Sol (who exhibits in leading art galleries) adorn the walls while homemade flat bread lies on the tables, all lit up by Jacqueline Morabito’s chandeliers.
