New Mosman eatery has a serious French accent


French bistros never go out of style and the Sydney suburb of Mosman will say "bienvenue" to a new bistro dining destination, L’Héritage, from next week. 

Expect the classics, not surprises. 

"Our menu is my personal interpretation of the meals I love to eat when I’m out in the local bistros of Paris," says head chef Julien Audibert-Lebon. 

L’Héritage is situated in a historic building overlooking Clifton Gardens and Sydney Harbour. It opens on December 10. 

L’Héritage will offer classic French, home-cooked dishes matched with local and French wines. It will be open seven days a week for breakfast and lunch, as well as serving dinners and events.

L’Heritage is the fourth restaurant venture for owners, husband Pierre and his Sydney-born wife Alena Rayrolles. The couple already own two Parisian brasseries as well as Frenchy’s Cafe, a much-loved Mosman destination.


They have now partnered with Pierre’s best friend of many years, Audibert-Lebon, who began his career in busy Parisian kitchens when he was just 16. 

Since then he has worked with leading chefs including Dominique Grel, Stephane Vieux, Jean-Michel Guilloteau, Pierre Hermé, Patrice Hardy and Marc Davis. 

‘With recipes and knowledge handed down through the generations, French cooking is my passion,’ says Julien.

L’Heritage has a quintessentially French interior with white walls and dark timber floors. The space is elegant and understated - the focus here is on friends, family and fine food. The menu features classic French dishes and fresh daily specials, all prepared with seasonal produce. 


“I love creating dishes with balance and contrast," he says. "Hot and cold, crispy and soft, sweet and savoury. I love experimenting with flavours and textures that evoke your senses and memories.”

Dishes include classic French entrées like chicken liver pâté, escargots, and salmon rillettes,  canard à l’orange, entrecote frites and bouillabaisse

Cheese lovers will enjoy the selection of imported French cheeses.

The drinks list includes selected Australian and imported French wines, together with traditional aperitifs and digestifs.
