Maison Giraud – the French Star Restaurant in the Palisades, Bon Appetit!

See also

Pacific Palisades, Los Angeles has long been a hidden treasure to get “starry-eyed”, many celebrities including Tom Hanks live in this secluded and affluent corner. One of the best-kept secrets amongst the restaurant Palisades scene is the Maison Giraud: the most fabulous place for delicious food and people watching. The Maison’s super crispy and warm croissant put them on the spot, but what attracts locals and celebrities even more is chef Alain Giraud’s delicious menu creations such as his famous White Gazpacho (a delicious soup made of Almonds, Cucumber and grapes) or his cured melon duck prosciutto. Alain makes sure all his creations are fresh and gets his ingredients from local farmers.

The sleek and cozy Maison is more than a restaurant it’s a French lifestyle: Visit the Bakery and grab one of their fluffy and buttery Pain au chocolates or my to-die-for Apricot Danish, come for a delicious lunch and bring the Maison Giraud hospitality right home thanks to Catherine Giraud’s welcoming store, which is located just foot steps away from the eatery. Her lavender –filled pillows and sachets are a local and celebrity favorite. Geena Davis is a regular and Ben Affleck has been spotted checking out those yummy croissants. Even more surprisingly you can enjoy a “Giraud experience” at a fabulous price. You can come and become your own star and enjoy Alain’s tasty luncheons for a low price, on weekdays guests can order a "plateau" (bento box) with an appetizer, entrée and dessert for around $20. Bon Appetit! MAISON GIRAUD (1032 Swarthmore Avenue, Pacific Palisades (310) 459-7561
