La Table du Palais Royal
Born in Casablanca (Morocco), Caroll Sinclair moved to Paris during the 60s, when she was just 19 years old. An artist at heart, she first expressed her creative side as a stylist for a subsidiary of the “Dior” fashion house and then for “Ted Lapidus”.
A few years later, she established herself on the decorating scene: shop windows and interior decoration became second nature to her.
It was when she turned 29 that Caroll started innovating in the restaurant business. Cooking according to her intuition and passion, she became a truly great chef while working – initially – at a charming restaurant in Paris’ 18th district, “Chez toi ou chez moi” (Your place or mine).
Later, she moved to the Bastille area where she opened “Chez Caroll Sinclair”. Caroll was very quickly noticed by France’s greatest chefs. In fact, the “Gault & Millau” guide awarded her with two chef’s hats in the context of her establishment, “Chez Caroll Sinclair”.
In 2004, Carroll fell in love with a place located near the Palais Royal, right across the street from the apartment where Colette – a famous writer – lived; the self-taught cook sold the Safran to a Japanese group. The title of the next episode: La Table du Palais Royal.
Tucked in a sunny setting, “La Table du Palais Royal” features “French cuisine with many nods to Mediterranean cooking”; cuisine that reminds her of all the flavours she enjoyed as a child in Morocco. The distinctive feature of this cuisine: it is prepared using organic products. However, subtly interspersed spices enrich the product and season the dish. Combining both her imagination and talent, she also offers – in addition to the usual menu – “the surprise menu of the day”.
And since 2004, she is once again letting her creative side express itself by offering brunch meals (every day for lunch) that are also prepared using organic products.
