Anthony Bourdain was one of the most mediatic American chefs, thanks to his work in charge of the kitchens of different restaurants, his work as a presenter on various gastronomic programmes and the publication of his books. His death in 2018, when he took his own life in France while filming a television programme, was also highly publicised. This news caused great commotion in the world of gastronomy. In fact, just a few months ago a biography was published recounting his final days. But he left a culinary legacy that still lives on today, such as his great recommendations of restaurants all over the world.

When he filmed ‘Anthony Bourdain: No Reservations’ in 2005 he revealed which restaurant had to be a must stop in Paris. In fact, he claimed it was second only to the Eiffel Tower. The chef was referring to the restaurant Le Dôme Café, an upscale bistro in the Montparnasse district specialising in fresh seafood cuisine, which has been open for over 125 years. For Bourdain it was “a classic in capital letters”.

Le Dôme

This restaurant is a Parisian institution that opened at the end of the 19th century. It is a luxurious and elegant place that immerses you in a unique gastronomic atmosphere thanks to its garden and the varied vegetation that accompanies you. The food and wine list is extensive and of high quality. The kitchen is run by Japanese-born chef Yoshihiko Miura, who is passionate about French gastronomy. His approach is simple but with a great sense of precision and aesthetics. At Le Dôme he offers a fish menu that stands out for its excellence, origin and respect for the products, modernising them without distorting them.

You can try delicacies such as roast cod tart, crispy spicy tuna, potato and red pepper thread, Saint-Jacques carpaccio with dressing and truffle petals or turbot, among other specialities. They also offer the Ernest menu for 49 € with a starter, main course and dessert.
