Black Dog – Paris – France
Snoopy, where are you?
Not sure that the famous gastronomic chroniclers of the chic Saint-Germain-des-Près district ventured much into this cutthroat-like cave, whose facade, and few sinister terrace smokers, would make run to mother’s skirts all good Kitty of the 16th arrondissement. Unless slumming.
Enough mumbo jumbo. What do we eat?!!!
Black poodle in a hot dog? Maybe when the restaurant opened. Today, we are with sublime pieces of Argentine meat, cooked to perfection (if your request is such), i.e., not exceeding the rare. Beyond that, confers the patibulars mentioned above. They will teach you how to live.
The nicknames of the dishes are in keeping with the atmosphere of the place, juggling between the lomo Erectus, the death penalty, the metal machine, or the Valhalla.
Of course, you have some dishes that will only arouse the enthusiasm of the most loyal of Michael Buble or Barry Manilow, such as grilled chicken or vegan meatballs. Let’s be clear, not the best on the menu.
So yes, in short, the meats are superb in terms of quality and cooking. You feel that both the service and the kitchen light a candle in your memory when you ask for “rare” cooked meat. This one will be served to you cooked on the surface without being charred and hot inside. So no complaints.
On the side a wide choice of various sauces at 1 euro each. There will always be a war between those who consider that it should be included in the price and those who think the diversity of the six sauces justifies the supplement. I’ll consider doing a thesis on this…
Am I dithyrambic? Well, let’s say the desserts are a little “special”. The only one out of the ordinary is “alien eggs”. And we’re more into the fun stuff than the end-of-meal happiness. These are fried dough with a cream that is unlikely to be used in gastronomy. With a pretty caramel pentagram…
Plus a little whipped cream. Come on; we’ll forgive you by saying it’s for fun…
Very good Malbec Argentinian Trapiche to accompany all this.
There is still the scenery…
I put the almost maximum score on this point because I love it. I do not doubt that some will see a slight satanic influence. They are right!
Bill of 250 euros for four people.
