Jazz in Paris While You Dine
Diners at a restaurant called Le Marfil have the pleasure of being serenaded by the sounds of a live jazz orchestra every night. A different group is scheduled to play from Tuesday through Saturday night, providing a cozy, cool ambiance for this traditional French restaurant. Located right near the Hotel Regencia, guests of the hotel have the opportunity to discover a little bit of the Paris jazz scene without having to travel far.
Le Marfil not only provides a unique musical experience, it also provides a creative and enjoyable menu that offers something to please all palates.
While the cuisine is traditional, it also strives to remain current. As a result, diners will find a mix of old-fashioned classics and trendy new dishes on the menu. Specialities include filet mignon with a peppercorn sauce, prawns grilled à la plancha, an assortment of chicken and vegetable nems and lobster ravioli. For dessert, diners can look forward to chocolate truffles with orange marmalade and warm brioche with caramelized fruits. Prices are a bit on the high side, so budget travelers might want to save this address for their splurge nights.
The decor matches the atmosphere that Le Marfil attempts to create with its cuisine and its music. Warm, dimmed lighting and a relaxed atmosphere will put both couples and groups of friends at ease. Diners should keep in mind that on Saturdays, dinners are served at only two times: 7:30 p.m. and 10:30 p.m.. They should therefore plan to arrive accordingly.
The staff is as lively as the music, so visitors should not hesitate to pay a visit to Le Marfil to check out its cuisine and its jazz offerings.
