Ralph Lauren's new Parisian digs are set to debut in a few weeks, completely with Ralph's, Lauren's first restaurant in Europe. (Ralph Lauren currently operates a restaurant Stateside in Chicago.)
He's teamed up with New York restaurateur Danny Meyer on the menu—a classic American carte of burgers, steaks, and crab cakes. "They wanted a real American restaurant with an American sensibility," Richard Coraine, one of Meyer's business partners, told the NY Times, "not a French interpretation of an American restaurant."
Fun fact: The angus steak on the menu at Ralph's? They come straight from Ralph Lauren's ranch in Colorado.
