What Did President Trump And President Macron Eat At Their Eiffel Tower Dinner?

American President Donald Trump was recently visiting France for Bastille Day and French President Emmanuel Macron and his wife Brigitte Macron settled for nothing less than a fancy dinner atop the Eiffel Tower to honour the POTUS and First Lady Melania Trump (yeah, despite his questionable food choices in the past).

Touted as one of the classiest restaurants in Paris, Le Jules Verne, sits on the second floor of the Eiffel Tower and offers a breathtaking view of the city and a menu that could set you back a couple hundred dollars, to say the least.

The menu at this Michelin-starred restaurant offers two prix-fixe tasting menus — five courses for $216 (~INR 14k) a person and six courses for $262 (~INR 17k) a person. And the party of four was treated to specially curated six-courses of fine French cuisine.

Prepared by popular chef Alain Ducasse, the spread featured a delightful selection of pate; tomato, eggplant, and zucchini; Dover sole, spinach and Hollandaise; filet of beef, brioche with foie, soufflé potato with truffle sauce; warm strawberry with yogurt sorbet; and hot chocolate soufflé with chocolate ice cream, reports People.

Oh and dare we miss this gorgeous little detail. Here’s a look at the menu card, which was especially designed with he Eiffel Tower on one side and the Statue of Liberty on the other.

Complete with a stunning flower arrangement that ran along the length of the table, we don’t see what could’ve been better than this evening in Paris?
