This unique place, restaurant, art gallery and tea room, imagined and restored by Jean-François Chuet for his wife Yang Lining, is located in the centre of the Faubourg Saint-Honoré, in Paris historical district of fashion, luxury and arts.
It was built in 1728 by Mazin, a knight and military architect of Louis the XVth. He designed a suite of various drawing rooms with an eye for perfectly proportioned, harmonious interior volumes, reflecting his inventive classicism as well as liberal thinking. The most famous hosts of the place were the Marquise de Pompadour (king Louis the XVth mistress) and later the General Marquis de La Fayette.
The construction miraculously survived Baron Haussmann's 19th century urbanization. It has been remodelled throughout the centuries following the various architectural styles of the times from Louis the XVth to Charles the Xth.
The 1728 restaurant is situated in the former reception rooms of Mazin's townhouse. The interior's renovation, carried out between 2001 and 2004, aims to reflect and respect the spirit and original style of the place.
Yang Lining shares her time now between classic music and the directorship of the 1728 restaurant.
