To look good, even while enjoying the simplest dish, there’s nothing like premium tableware. That’s good: the prestigious restaurant, La Tour d’Argent, is auctioning off some of its crockery and furniture. Glasses, plates, trolleys, cutlery, decorative ornaments… There is something for everyone! Behind this exceptional sale: the desire, for the owner of the place, André Terrail to make “clean slate of the past”. A (monetary) opportunity to unearth some gems!
If you are a gourmet, you probably know La Tour d’Argent, one of the most legendary Parisian restaurants. Located in the 5th arrondissement, this establishment, which was founded in 1582, is particularly known for two aspects: on the one hand, it is often cited as being one of the oldest restaurants in France. On the other, its breathtaking panoramic view of the Seine and Notre-Dame de Paris cathedral.
The Tour d’Argent is also renowned for having seen many great names pass through it over the centuries, such as Henry III or Louis XIV, and it is not for nothing. The establishment aims to be high-end, with decoration combining modernity and refinement, and cuisine that is always tasty and elaborate. Proof that know-how has a pride of place at the Tour d’Argent, since 2020, it is none other than the Meilleur Ouvrier de France 204, Yannick Franques, who is in the kitchen, surrounded by his brigade of enthusiasts. It makes a point of offering great classics of French cuisine revisited with gourmet sauce. An obvious desire to reconcile modernity and translation.
This dynamic is also found throughout the rest of the restaurant which does not fail to reinvent itself regularly. As proof: La Tour d’Argent recently had a makeover and is preparing to do the same for its tableware and furniture. And part of this prestigious inventory will be auctioned very soon during a sale entitled “Tableware at La Tour d’Argent“.
If you wish to replenish your stock of forks, glasses or plates, come from January 12 to 19 for an online sale organized by the auction house Artcurial. No less than 320 lots will be offered for purchase. Our little finger tells us that prices are likely to soar, but to afford a little piece of French heritage, you have to put your hand in your wallet, right? And if you just want to please your eyes, this exceptional collection is on display until January 17 at Maison Artcurial located at 7 rond-point des Champs-Elysées, in Paris.
