An American in Paris: Ralph's

August 17, 2015

Opened 2010, Ralph's, by Ralph Lauren, is an all-American restaurant in Paris. The place is a renovated 17th century town house. Being my all-time favorite designer, I was looking forward to trying it out. Since the weather was good we enjoyed lunch al fresco in their cozy patio. We felt like we had been transported to the Hamptons.

A meal at Ralph’s begins with a snack of deep-fried olives -which you can see on the top left corner of the photo below- and drinks. 

The menu is full of American classics. We went for the turkey burger -which is served with heirloom tomatoes, avocado and fresh green herbs- and the grilled farmhouse chicken breast -served with spinach, mashed potatoes and black pepper sauce.

If you read online reviews, you'll find out that many people say that Ralph's serves the best hamburgers in Paris. I couldn't agree more. The American designer himself dines at his restaurant for the burgers. In fact, steaks come from cows raised on the fashion icon’s Double RL ranch in Colorado.

For dessert we ordered Ralph's Favorites which consist of a coffee served with a mini brownie, a mini peanut butter & chocolate cake and a mini cheesecake.

Coffee is also served with a generous helping of house-made caramel corn. Yum!

We had a really late lunch that day. As we finished our meal, the staff was preparing the tables for dinner. The decor will remind you of his homeware collection. Ralph's style is present in every corner. From the crockery to the staff's uniform. All waiters and waitresses were impeccably dressed in Ralph Lauren's clothes. Think crisp white shirts with blue stripes and white collars, narrowly tailored navy pants with white stripes, dark neckties and white aprons. Those who greet you are dressed as horsewomen. Being dressed in a Ralph Lauren uniform every day is the top reason why I'd love to work there :)

The whole experience was positive, we felt like being in a part of Ralph Lauren’s world.
