The New French Dining Experience in Sofia
The Restaurant @ Crystal Palace offers original dishes of the French cuisine. Its location is an emblematic address in the heart of Sofia – 14, Shipka Street, just next to the Doctor’s Garden. Here, the day begins with clarifying butter, so that we then slowly cook traditional French meals in it. Each of the fresh salads from Provence, starters from Normandy, main dishes from Burgundy or desserts from the Alsace region have been carefully selected to become part of the menu. Moreover, most of the recipes are several centuries old and were originally made for royal families.
In fact, the Restaurant is more than just a French restaurant. The Restaurant is a place where you may enjoy the French way of living and dining: starting with the family lunch, having coffee with typical French cakes in the afternoon, then continuing with the aperitif before ending the day with the traditional long-lasting dinner. Such dining is an unforgettable experience if taken both in the elegant main hall or the business lounge in winter, and in the quiet and cool summer garden of the Restaurant.
The Restaurant’s team will gladly take you to a virtual journey to France’s various regional cuisines and will also carefully select wines and traditional French cheeses typical for the different provinces. Some rosés and Burgundy reds are popular throughout the world, while others will become a pleasant surprise even for the most proficient connoisseurs due to their taste, savor and harmony with the suitable cheese.
Apropos, harmony. It is indeed the harmony of dishes and wines as well as the variety of tastes and culinary styles that both The Restaurant and our new chef rely on: Mr. Plamen Evropeiski is undoubtedly one of the most experienced masters of culinary arts in Bulgaria. He is well-known for his innovations and perfection of pursuing both quality and synergy of tastes. In his recipes, Plamen adeptly selects both fresh and seasonal products and modern and traditional cooking methods for the meals.
We are pleased to welcome you at The Restaurant every day between 11:00 am and 00:00 am, and also invite you to regularly visit our website to learn more about the special culinary evenings, daily and monthly menus with dishes from various corners of France and Europe.
