Idéal Gourmet > Qui sommes-nous ?



Ideal Gourmet, it is first a gastronomic story !

In 2004, it was impossible in France - the country of gastronomy - to offer an invitation to relatives in a restaurant without accompany them. And as the founding partners were abroad for Christmas, they decided to roll up their sleeves.

From that moment was born the concept of the Gourmet Invitation that was created by bringing together around the table (it all about tables) great chefs (some sponsors: Guy Martin Grand Véfour, Gérard Besson's from the restaurant Eponyme, Alain Senderens from the Lucas-Carton Senderens, Alain Passard from L'Arpege, Patrick Pignol from Relais d'Auteuil ...).

So this is how we created this stunning invitation, unique, always entitled to an all inclusive menu, so that the gift is not a surprise gift and the beneficiary gets out of the restaurant without ever paying anything.

Ideal Gourmet is also listening carefully to its customers

We believe that a company is sustainable only if it is listening to its customers and satisfying them.
That is why we created the Multirestaurant® Invitations that provide access to a selection of restaurants. This is also why we created Events service because companies needed guidance in organizing their banquets, ...

Ideal Gourmet : a beautiful story, thanks to you !
