“- I was thinking, if I have lunch with her not far from here, maybe you could join us?

– I really don’t have time, Camille.

– And tomorrow? Or Friday? She’s here for a week. Please, please, please, I’d love to. And I’m sure she is too.

– You don’t have to give me those puppy dog eyes. Tomorrow, just coffee.”

Camille (Fanny Sydney) and Mathias (Thibault de Montalembert)

The truth has come out in the Barneville family, Camille is Mathias’ illegitimate daughter. Now that the secret is partially out, Camille takes the opportunity to ask her father to come and eat with her mother at the Grand Colbert.

Mathias agrees, but only for a coffee. He arrives at the restaurant and spends some time with his daughter and her ex-lover.

But no one suspects that, in a short time, Noémie (Laure Calamy) will arrive at the restaurant with Catherine (Philippine Leroy-Beaulieu), Mathias’ wife, in all innocence. Mathias’ assistant is not aware of all the mishmash that takes place here. Catherine, on the other hand, had smelled the trick.

Le Grand Colbert

Located in a building built in 1828, the restaurant Le Grand Colbert is a true Parisian gastronomic institution.

On this site, a private mansion was built in 1637, commissioned by Guillaume Bautru, Count of Serrant.

Sold to Jean-Baptiste Colbert in 1652, it then passed into the hands of Philippe d’Orléans in 1719.

In 1806, the State Debt Fund took place within the walls until 1825. The hotel was then destroyed to make way for the current building and in particular the opening of the Colbert Gallery, erected to compete with the Vivienne Gallery.

On the site of the restaurant, from 1828 to 1900, was installed a novelty store called “Au Grand Colbert”. Transformed into a restaurant at the beginning of the 20th century, it was renovated in 1985 revealing its large room, its 6-meter high walls, its mosaics on the floor and its splendid paintings on wood, inventoried in the list of historical arts.
