NUMBER, PLEASE: The usually discreet Hôtel Le Bristol is the talk of the town this season, with the opening of its 114 Faubourg high-end brasserie. Set on two levels with an open kitchen downstairs, the decor is warm and colorful with giant flowers on the walls, parquet floors and a large wrought-iron stairway. The menu offers top quality products cooked any way customers choose and served with a choice of sauces. For instance, cod fish or tuna can be steamed, grilled, or cooked à la plancha, and it comes with either sesame or hollandaise sauce. As a reminder that three-Michelin star chef Eric Fréchon, who heads the gastronomic Bristol restaurant, also oversees 114 Faubourg’s kitchen, dinner for two with wine costs the equivalent of a hefty $350. Meanwhile, the hotel has added a new wing to its Faubourg Saint-Honoré building, which boasts 26 luxurious rooms and suites.  114 Faubourg, Hôtel Le Bristol, 114 Rue du Faubourg Saint-Honoré, 75008; +33-1-53-43-43-58.

FRANK WORK: The Pierre Bergé-Yves Saint Laurent Foundation is unveiling a retrospective on Art Deco interior decorator Jean-Michel Frank, whose simple, yet sumptuous furniture and objects were collected by the designer and Bergé. The decorator, a cousin of Anne Frank, died in 1941 and became known for his minimal style inspired by 18th-century Neoclassicism and his penchant for luxurious materials like shagreen, parchment and ivory.

The exhibition, which opens Friday and runs until Jan. 3, will feature a selection of furniture and objects in addition to photographs of interiors Frank designed for buildings such as Rockefeller Center in New York and private residences.  Fondation Pierre Bergé-Yves Saint Laurent, 5 Avenue Marceau, 75116; +33-1-44-31-64-00.

Following the success of Les Enfants Terribles in Megève, France, Jocelyn and Jean-Louis Sibuet (also known for their luxury hotels) have opened Les Enfants Terribles in Paris. Right off the Champs-Elysées, the new eatery mixes great food with glamorous ambiance. The elegant 130-seat restaurant boasts an open kitchen serving up an array of appetizers and à la plancha fish or meat dishes. Yummy deserts include rhum baba and caramelized rice pudding. Dinner for two with wine runs for approximately the equivalent of $180. Les Enfants Terribles, 8 Rue Lord Byron, 75008; +33-1-53-89-90-91.
