Step inside an LPM and you’ll find a pared-down backdrop reminiscent of the French Riviera: a light colour palette, white china, fine linens, marble. Onto that: brilliant, bold colours. Art from 20th Century painters from the South of France: provocative, bright, naive. Fresh flowers in outrageous vases, arrangements that are unstructured, untidy even. You’ll also find references and inspirations from ‘Belle Époque’ villas on the Côte d’Azur: mosaics, fer forgé, shutters. All LPMs carry hallmarks of classic French restaurants... 19th Century gilt and harlequin mirrors and a centrepiece bronze sculpture, for example.
Sun-dappled terraces, comfortable, easy chairs, bright bougainvilleas, craggy olive trees. Open prep counters. Classic welcome bars, typically marble or lava stone with pewter, or zinc. Music between modern and timeless, bossa novas, Mediterranean jazz. And so, with the help of our guests, we create an extraordinary energy between us. There’s nothing quite like it.
