Laurent Marchand – Patisserie
Chef Laurent XIV
I consider each of my cakes to be a piece of art and in addition, ensure that my baking approach is conscientious to both my consumer’s health and the health of the environment. Each cake is 45 to 60 percent less calories, higher in protein, and mostly plant based as compared to a traditional cake. Twenty servings of vegetables have fewer greenhouse gas emissions than one serving of beef! My cakes taste as delicious as they look without compromising neither diet nor the environment, and I am so proud and excited to share with the world!
Restaurant La Grenouille
Location: 3 E 52nd St, NY, NY 10022
Contact: (212) 752 1495
La Grenouille is a historic and award-winning French restaurant, founded in 1962. The menu of La Grenouille is essentially entirely "haute French cuisine", with customer menus presenting the French names of classic and more modern dishes, respecting environment.
Restaurant le Gigot
Location: 18 Cornelia St #1, NY, NY 10014
Contact: (212) 627 3737
At first glance, Le Gigot transports guests to an inviting little family-owned bistro—the kind you’d only find in La Ville-Lumière. The service exceeds expectations with uncharacteristic warmth that brings a welcoming vibe to the nostalgic dining room.
Brasserie Le Baratin
Chefs Micheal and Cyril Touchard
Location: 26 Greenwich Ave, NY, NY 10011
Contact: (212) 933 1080
Le Baratin is a casual French bistro located in the West Village. Working with local products and purveyors, the menus feature a selection of familiar bistro offerings.
Restaurant le Bar Tabac
Location: 128 Smith St, Brooklyn, NY 11201
Contact: (718) 923 0918
Bar Tabac imparts vibrant energy to the Cobble Hill neighborhood in Brooklyn and compliments Smith Street’s bohemian spirit. The colorful corner storefront embodies the spirit of the tabacs in France, the ubiquitous small storefronts and annexes in bars that sell lottery tickets, chewing gum, and of course, tobacco. Bar Tabac may not actually sell tobacco, but the lively camaraderie and antique 1960’s bar conspire to compose a unique place that is authentically French but delightfully local.
Chef Olivier Dessyn
Locations: Greenwich Village – 552 Laguardia Pl. NY, NY 10012 & UES – 2175 Broadway, NY, NY 10024
Contact: (212) 362-6261

Chef Daniel Boulud

Restaurant Les Bernardins
Chef Eric Ripert
Location: Le Bernardin, 787 Seventh Avenue, NY, NY 10019
Tel : +1 (212) 554 1515
Born in Paris in 1972 by sibling duo Maguy and Gilbert Le Coze, Le Bernardin only served fish: Fresh, simple and prepared with respect. After receiving its first Michelin star in 1976, and two more in 1980, the Le Coze’s set to open Le Bernardin in New York in 1986. Chef Ripert is committed to eco-friendly fishing and quality. With the Consulate General of France, Chef Ripert was the instigator of this action. Thanks to him.
