Restaurant Review: Maison Proust, Paris

Restaurant Review: Maison Proust, Paris

I’d already been planning to recommend the intimate bar at the chic new Maison Proust hotel in the Upper Marais when recent news made this pending suggestion even more alluring.

Award-winning Colin Field, who hails from Rugby in England and who is perhaps the world’s most famous bartender, announced that he was leaving the Hemingway Bar at the Ritz after almost 30 years, because he’d become bored, and would begin working part-time at Maison Proust’s plush little bar instead.

As modern mixology has become more baroque, Field remains a classicist, insisting that the best drinks are made with two or three ingredients at most, which means that this rather romantic, low-lit, dark-wood panelled spot is now the place to go in the French capital for an absolutely perfect martini or maybe a wonderfully malicious Manhattan.

26 rue de Picardie, 3rd arrondissement, Paris.
