Housed inside the historic El Dorado Building, Le Petit Paris is the vision of Cannes-based restauranteurs David and Fanny Rolland.  The 300-seat restaurant brings a quintessential brasserie dining experience to Downtown LA’s Historic Core.  Le Petit Paris is open for brunch, lunch, happy hour, and dinner. 

The restaurant is an architectural marvel, designed by the Rollands, featuring multiple skylights, two bars, a mezzanine level, and a large outdoor patio.  During the daytime, Le Petit Paris provides a tranquil, bright venue, and at night it transforms into an upscale fine dining restaurant with a lounge. 

Le Petit Paris – Los Angeles marks the third successful restaurant for the husband and wife duo after opening Le Petit Paris and Miramar Beach on the French Riviera.  Their vast experience in the Cannes hospitality industry has made them professionals at their craft in both France and the U.S.


Our Passionate Executive Chef, Matthieu Audinot, was born in Champagne, France. He moved to Los Angeles in 2016 with one goal: introduce Los Angelinos to the delight of French Cuisine.

By his side, our Executive Pastry Chef, Sylvain Fond, from Strasbourg, France, always make sure you finish your meal with a sweet note. And oh! What a sweet note. 


Le Petit Paris comes from Cannes-based restaurateurs David and Fanny Rolland, owners of Miramar Plage on La Croisette and the original Le Petit Paris, both located in Cannes. The restaurant is housed in Downtown Los Angeles’ historic El Dorado building, originally built in 1913. Le Petit Paris features multiple skylights, a mezzanine level, a lounge, a room dedicated to date night goers, “La Boutique,” a gift shop with artisanal goods from France and a large outdoor patio. The restaurant features dishes from the South of France and provides a true French brasserie dining experience to Downtown LA’s Historic Core.


While both Fanny and David were born in Northern France, the two relocated to Cannes with their families when they were young. It was there that Fanny was given the opportunity to work alongside her restaurateur parents gaining invaluable experience in all aspects of the business. David, an industry pioneer, acquired over 15 years of experience working in a wide variety of restaurant jobs including serving at Noga Hilton Palace, and working for a large food distribution company. Shortly after meeting in Cannes, the husband and wife duo decided to turn their dreams into a reality by opening Miramar Plage on La Croisette and the original Le Petit Paris, both located in Cannes. It was second nature for the Rollands’, both having spent so many years in the restaurant industry.
