Located in 8th arrondissement, the interestingly-named restaurant DeVèz is evoking more than just curiosity from Parisian diners. The restaurant is also impressing its patrons with a wide selection of inventive dishes that shine the spotlight on high-quality meat.
The DeVèz owes its name to the French word ‘devèses,’ which is a term for the green pastures of the Aubrac region of France — pastures that are found at an altitude of up to 1,400 meters high. It is in the Aubrac region that the cattle used to produce the restaurant’s beef are raised. In fact, the restaurant’s owner Christian Valette oversees the raising of his cattle in the commune of Laguiole.
Diners will immediately notice the chic decor of the restaurant, which is surrounded by high fashion shops in a trendy area of the city. The interior design of the establishment is restrained yet stylish, reflecting the ambiance of the entire neighborhood. With brown and green tones, the inside of the restaurant evokes a natural setting that prepares diners to taste the natural, hand-raised beef that is the specialty of the house.
For starters, patrons can expect to dine on appetizers like poached egg with asparagus, an assortment of tapas or fois gras with fig and pear chutney. Diners will then be delighted by main courses like chicken fricassee with olives and ratatouille, cod filet with Thai rice and ‘sauce vierge,’ and Aubrac prime rib for two. To finish the night, diners can try desserts such as rice pudding with cinnamon and red berry creme brulee.
These dishes offer a tasty take on French contemporary cuisine, and guests staying at the Hôtel de la Tour Maubourg should make sure that an evening at the DeVèz gets a spot on their itinerary.
