Hotel restaurant gives Nantes visitors a gourmet dining experience
Experience authentic and elegant French cuisine in a historic setting at L’Assise, located in the former courtroom of the Palais de Justice. Le Preambule Bar serves creative mixed drinks, appetisers, and desserts in a colourful, modern atmosphere punctuated with the building’s original columns, and once a month the hotel hosts a special Sunday brunch with visits by guest artists who display and discuss their work.
Jean Philippe Nuel redesigned the Palais de Justice’s courtroom to create this unique hotel restaurant in Nantes. The trial judge section has been converted into a wine cellar, while the upper walls have been turned into a projection screen to add a new edge to this historic space. Executive Chef Frederic Laval combines regional tradition and modern technique to create sophisticated and original French dishes.
Le Preambule Bar
Incorporating columns that were part of the original architecture of the building, the design of Le Preambule expertly combines history and vibrant modern influences to produce a truly distinctive space. Chat with friends or clients over a cocktail, a glass of wine or a tempting dessert.
A Brunch, An Artist
The Radisson Blu Hotel, Nantes proudly hosts a delicious gourmet brunch one Sunday per month in the Restaurant L'Assise. Each month, a special guest artist will display works from his or her exhibitions during the brunch and give an educational presentation. Please contact us to know the next date.
