NEW YORK — Air France is launching its first pop-up restaurant in New York called Paris for Dessert to promote the airline’s exceptional French cuisine for five days from June 20 – 24.
Paris for Dessert takes inspiration from Air France’s long legacy of working with top Michelin-starred chefs to create onboard menus. Throughout Paris for Dessert’s five nights, guests will be treated to a tasting menu designed by renowned Chef Daniel Boulud. Guests will be asked to arrive with a passport and packed suitcase because each night one lucky couple will win an instant takeoff to Paris to experience a two-night culinary adventure that includes round trip business class flights, a meal at a Michelin-starred restaurant at Saint James Paris and a 2-night stay at a Marriott hotel.
“Air France is proud of its role as an ambassador of French cuisine,” said Stéphane Ormand, Vice President and General Manager, Air France-KLM USA. “We believe that the culinary adventure to France and beyond should begin with in-flight dining.”
The public can also score an invite and a delicious pastry by visiting the Air France boarding staircase, which will be located in the heart of New York City June 12 – 16. From atop the stairs visitors will be able to enjoy a dessert and take a PANORA.ME panoramic selfie. By posting their PANORA.ME photo on social media with #ParisForDessert and #AirFrance, guests will be entered into a drawing to win a reservation for two at one of the Paris for Dessert dinners.

Air France and the Art of High-Flying French Cuisine
Air France is committed to promoting French haute cuisine in all its cabin classes. With a unique legacy, the Company is continuing a tradition that values excellence, pleasure and exclusivity. Since 2009, Air France has entrusted dishes on its Business Class menus to a renowned French chef. Joël Robuchon, Guy Martin, Michel Roth, Thibaut Ruggeri, Régis Marcon, Anne-Sophie Pic and François Adamski were the first to carry out this mission as French gastronomy ambassadors aboard Air France flights, by including one or several creations among the different main dishes on the menu. In keeping with the menus created by Michelin-starred chefs on departure from Paris, Air France is offering new high-flying dishes created by Daniel Boulud on departure from the United States and Canada.
