Brasserie de L’Etoile is a restaurant dedicated to the simple pleasures of Paris, where eating is an art. From its wide-open front terrace dotted with cane chairs and marble-topped tables, to the elegant Art Nouveau interior characterized by curvilinear wood paneling, graceful floral patterns and framed mirrors, Brasserie de L’Etoile evokes the charm of turn-of-the-century Paris with its cafes around every corner.
Parisian brasseries are noted for their hearty, traditional cuisine, and Brasserie de L’Etoile is no exception. The menu offers a variety of original French dishes that can only be enjoyed in Kuwait. From the signature salad of walnuts, apple, and smoked turkey topped with gruyere cheese, to Steak Tartar with mixed alfalfa salad, to the classic Onion Soup, starters are emphatically French. Mouth-watering main courses include Braised Lamb Shank with ratatouille and mashed potatoes, Orange Duck with spatzle, asparagus and celery mash, and Baked Salmon Filet with rock salt and virgin sauce served with mixed vegetables. Completing the meal are dessert classics such as Vanilla Bourbon Crème Brûlée, Tarte Tatin (caramelized apple tart), and Tarte au Chocolat La Brasserie, a warm and sinful chocolate tart.
Brasseries are noted for their warm, welcoming atmosphere – after all, they are primarily neighborhood haunts that cater to “regulars.” At Brasserie de L’Etoile, the staff is steeped in “savoir vivre,” the French art of knowing how to live! Everyone from the chef to the maitre d’ to the waiters brings this particularly French frame of mind to bear, resulting in a friendly, familial dining atmosphere where both food and friends can be enjoyed to the fullest.
It’s possible to have a traditional French meal three times a day at Brasserie, where breakfast dishes include omelets, croissants, and of course, café au lait. For lunch, be sure to try the Croque-Monsieur, the smoked turkey and cheese toasted sandwich enjoyed by generations of Parisians. Whatever your choice at Brasserie de L’Etoile, you can count on it being authentically French, produced following traditional recipes and using the best fresh ingredients. Bon appetit!
