After the one at Terminal 1, a new Café Eiffel opened on Thursday, 13 December in the new public restaurant area at Terminal 2 E. Discover Michelin 2-star chef Michel Rostang’s latest Parisian bubble at Paris-Charles de Gaulle.
The Café Eiffel Maison Rostang, operated by Select Service Partner, now offers passengers and people waiting at Terminal 2E a selection of high-quality Parisian counter-top cuisine.
“Paris Aéroport is expanding its food and restaurant options. Between now and 2020, eight Michelin-starred chefs will be in action at Paris airports. The opening of this new area dedicated to fine food and the French ‘art de vivre’ will help raise the quality of service we provide to our customers,” explains Mathieu Daubert, Director of the Customer Division for Groupe ADP.
Café Eiffel, the story of an encounter
Michel Rostang and Philippe Coupérie-Eiffel wanted to combine their respective skills and heritage and create a space that pays tribute to the inventors and creative minds of France, and to the country itself. Combining their vision to establish a restaurant that prides itself on high-quality service, with a selection of dishes showcasing the best French produce, their goal was to introduce travellers to all aspects of what we call “technical proficiency”. “We have carefully developed our food and restaurant options with a focus on innovation and quality. We are particularly proud of Paris Aéroport’s partnership with Michel Rostang and Coupérie-Eiffel, with whom we share a passion for excellence and ensuring passengers have an experience that lives up to their expectations,” says Gérard d’Onofrio, Deputy CEO of SSP France, Belgium and Luxembourg. Maison Rostang chefs Michel Rostang and Nicolas Beaumann have selected quality produce from small French producers recognised for their authenticity and know-how: beef and veal from Polmard, cooked ham by Prince de Paris, seasonal Richerenches truffles, and more. The restaurant, which also offers a take-away choice of on-the-spot customisable sandwiches and viennoiseries, seats 72 and stays open from 5.30 am till 10.30 pm. “Café Eiffel is a friendly place to spend a moment before a big departure.” Chef Michel Rostang
The spirit of Gustave Eiffel
The structure that houses Café Eiffel is itself a tribute to the world-famous Eiffel Tower. This invitation to travel offers passengers the chance to experience the magic of Paris before take-off. “Gustave Eiffel always made useful things.
We kept this in mind when creating Café Eiffel, and its small exhibition on the great man himself. We wanted to remind world travellers that behind the Tower is a man, Gustave Eiffel, and that he brought joy and pride to the French people,” says Philippe Coupérie-Eiffel.
