Le Petit Paris is the vision of Cannes-based restaurateurs David and Fanny Rolland. The 400 seat restaurant brings a quintessential brasserie dining experience to Downtown LA’s Historic Core. Under the direction of Executive Chefs Baptiste Grellier and Jeremie Cazes, Le Petit Paris offers brunch, lunch, and dinner and has a retail store, “La Boutique,” which showcases exclusive French specialty products and display art from some of France’s most notable artists. Le Petit Paris provides a tranquil, bright dining venue during the day and transforms into an upscale lounge atmosphere at night – DJ included.
While both Fanny and David were born in Northern France, the two relocated to Cannes with their families when they were young. Shortly after meeting, the husband and wife duo decided to turn their dreams into reality by opening Miramar Plage on La Croisette and the original Le Petit Paris, both located in Cannes. It was second nature for the Rollands, both having spent many years in the restaurant industry. Los Angeles’ Le Petit Paris is housed in the El Dorado Building, originally built in 1913. The restaurant, designed by the Rollands, features multiple skylights, two bars, a mezzanine level and a large outdoor patio.
