Mory Sacko, a name now synonymous with innovation and culinary excellence, has once again set the gastronomic world abuzz with his latest venture: Lafayette’s. Nestled within the historic walls of an exquisite 17th-century mansion at 8 rue d’Anjou, Lafayette’s embodies the fusion of tradition and modernity in both cuisine and ambiance.
At Lafayette’s, Mory Sacko takes diners on a new gastronomic experience. Drawing on his Senegalese and Malian heritage, as well as his extensive training in French gastronomy, Mory Sacko has created a menu that crosses borders and tantalizes the taste buds. French classics are enhanced with Cajun accents, while African flavors add a vibrant touch to familiar dishes.
From the decadent pâté en croûte featuring Chicken Yassa to the all-American corn soup served under a delicate puff pastry, each dish at Lafayette’s tells a story of cultural exchange and culinary innovation. Guests can indulge in Lafayette’s fried chicken, presented in a woven silver basket, or savor the buttery sole meunière with a Champagne sauce. And of course, no visit to Lafayette’s would be complete without sampling their signature cheeseburger, crafted from aged beef, cheddar, and relish.
Beyond its superb cuisine, Lafayette’s seduces with its breathtaking ambience. Renowned interior designer Lázaro Rosa-Violán has brilliantly blended historic charm with contemporary elegance, creating a space as welcoming as it is sophisticated. The restaurant features three beautifully appointed lounges – Musique, La Fayette and Pompadour – each with its own unique feel.
As guests step through the doors of Lafayette’s, they are transported to a bygone era of opulence and grandeur. Candlelight flickers against gilded walls adorned with works of art, while the aroma of tantalizing dishes fills the air. It’s a culinary journey through time, where every moment is infused with history and haute cuisine.
Housed within the historic Hôtel Mazin, once frequented by the illustrious Marquis de Lafayette himself, the restaurant pays homage to its rich heritage while embracing the vibrancy of modern Parisian dining.
