Alain Ducasse, the famous chef with 21 Michelin stars and more than 40 restaurants, opened Sapid on September 6. In this new Parisian restaurant, 95% of the dishes are vegan. “Vegetable proteins are more than enough to meet an individual’s nutritional needs,” Ducasse points out.
Sapid, located in the 10ᵉ arrondissement of Paris, at 54 rue de Paradis, is “cheap, it’s a restaurant-refectory where you can eat for 20 to 30 € including drinks. 95% of what you eat will be vegetables and cereals”, specifies the Chef. “All this to pay attention to the health of the individual who consumes and to pay attention to the planet, to pay attention to your wallet.”
By opening this restaurant, the Chef wishes to preserve the planet’s resources while adapting to current trends and proving that plant-based food can be delicious and healthy. On France Info, Alain Ducasse declared last June: “It was natural that we could demonstrate that it is possible to make a restaurant where only vegetable food is the reference.
Alain Ducasse was already one of the precursors in terms of vegetarian offer and had already started to offer a vegetarian menu in 1996 in his restaurant Le Louis XV located in Monte-Carlo in Monaco.
