Yachts de Paris announces its gastronomic cruise on the Don Juan II Yacht offers one-star Michelin dining. The famous restaurant guide has acknowledged Chef Frédéric Anton, which means the Seine trip is the only one to offer Michelin-star cuisine.
Paris has always been renowned for fine dining and has many Michelin-starred restaurants. A unique experience is now available where you can take in the stunning scenes of Paris while you float along the Seine, enjoying delightful meals made by Frédéric Anton. He has been awarded a star for his cooking on the Don Juan II yacht, making it the first-ever cruise to offer such highly-rated cuisine.
On the menu: A two-hour sailing experience, including a prestigious dinner on the most beautiful avenue in Paris, the River Seine. Frédéric Anton’s cruise spans the stretch of river between the Eiffel tower and the Conciergerie, offering a handful of lucky diners the chance to admire the French capital in all its shining glory, with its offer of gastronomic cruises on the Don Juan II.
At the helm of this legendary yacht, the multi-starred chef creates an intimate experience that reflects his style: subtle and refined cuisine that embodies a perfect harmony between aesthetic beauty and taste.
The unforgettable cruise combines the cosy atmosphere of a ship from the last century featuring an Art Deco interior with the magical monuments of the City of Light and the best in French gastronomy.
Dedicated to serving delicious, top-quality cuisine to his guests, Frédéric Anton selects seasonal products and concocts his menus to reflect his expertise. And his dedication has been rewarded! His food brings guests together and is served uniquely, reflecting his ambition to make this new Parisian location a pillar in French fine dining.
An example of the seasonal menu is,
Cream and roasted seeds, Dashi flan, Caviar
Flavoured with Curry, Grapefruit “Zéphyr”
Prepared as a Ravioli, American sauce, thin Gold jelly
Pan-fried, Peas flavoured with Nutmeg and “jus gras”
Warm Soufflé, Pistachio ice cream.
The price per person is 240 Euros.
Indulge in your starter whilst sailing by the Sacre Coeur, devour your fish course taking in the fabulous Notre Dame cathedral, and savour the lamb seeing the Eiffel Tower. As the cruise ends, you finish your dessert and have experienced a fantastic two hours on the Seine.
For 25 years, Frédéric Anton has upheld his values of creating “simple, effective and unadulterated” food. As a Meilleur Ouvrier de France and chef at Pré Catelan (three Michelin stars) and Jules Verne (one Michelin star), Frédéric Anton has the opportunity to express the full range of his talent and uphold his high standards here on board the Don Juan II. His leitmotiv is the use of seasonal products due to rigorous sourcing.
This naturalistic approach is perfectly in line with the chef’s values. He has always been committed to total transparency about the origin of his produce, determined to fight against food waste and devoted to allowing the seasons to guide his cuisine, and not the other way around.
This first Michelin star acknowledges Frédéric Anton’s know-how and recognises his entire crew and restaurant team’s effort.
“I am delighted that the hard work of the entire Don Juan II team since the opening has been recognised. This first star in the Michelin Guide underlines our ambition,” said Frédéric.
