From May 15 to August 31
The Ritz Bar has taken up its summer quarters at the Grand Jardin to make the most of the season. From noon to dusk, one may linger in the secret of the alcoves or in the shade of marquise-shaped linden trees.
An idyllic luncheon with fresh salads, ceviches and sun-kissed dishes delights the senses. A frappe coffee, the flavor of the day from the ice cream cart or afternoon sweets by Pastry Chef François Perret are just so many invitations to farniente as the hours pass.
Zany alcohol-infused tea cocktails evoke seventies-era summers – perfect excuses for taking a rendezvous for a chic aperitif on the terrace or a light dinner for two as the sun goes down. Once the stars come out, there is just time for a nightcap.
At the Grand Jardin, summer’s tables await.
