Japanese pastry chef Yu Tanaka has come up with an all new teatime menu for Le Bristol Paris’ courtyard garden, Le Jardin Français, and for Café Antonia.
Featured alongside a fine selection of teas and coffees, Tanaka’s menu comprises an emblematic Le Bristol Paris keychain pastry made with pistachio, orange blossom, almond milk and rose; a strawberry tart with vanilla cream; a vanilla religieuse with pecan and classic English scones.
On the savoury side, a presentation of freshly made finger sandwiches by Chef Eric Frechon features a truffle croque-monsieur and the hotel’s much-loved lobster roll.
The menu is available every day from 3pm–6pm at Café Antonia and Le Jardin Français, with the classic teatime menu at about ¥12,500 per person.
Inheriting pastry legacy from his father who is also classically French trained, Tanaka decided to follow in his footsteps, and moved to France at only 18 years old,.
In 2016, Frechon found Tanaka’s pastry skills excellent, and mentored him for five years, before promoting him into head of pastry of the multiple award-winning restaurant.
