Lasserre, Paris

While the weather is warm, restaurants around the globe rely on retractable roofs for a dynamic dining experience.

With two Michelin stars to its name, Lasserre, in Paris’s 8th arrondissement, serves contemporary French cuisine in a classic space with a frescoed ceiling that slides open to reveal the sky. A popular destination since René Lasserre opened the restaurant in 1942, it continues to attract A-listers. Chef Christophe Moret creates classics (cold lobster bisque) as well as original plates (langoustines in a ginger-and-lime stock).
