Atelier Maître Albert – Paris – France Visit Review: 16,2

Imperturbable.

Although I lived nearly 20 years at a distance of a few dozen meters, I had never set foot in what can now almost be considered an institution in the 5th arrondissement.     I'm not going to give you the usual talk about Guy Savoy; you've already read it 100 times in 100 articles. As glorious and competent as they are, making the historical filling of chefs' [...]

Black Dog – Paris – France Visit Review: 16

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 [...]

La table Saint-Jean – Provins – France Visit Review: 14,2

Generous

The restaurants in Provins are divided like the city, between the upper and lower. And the first one includes most of the pretty tables. There are of course some exceptions that you will find throughout my blog.     La table Saint-Jean offers a pretty menu of traditional and well-crafted dishes.    Snails, sweetbreads, calf's head follow each other on the [...]

Au bon Laboureur – Bray-sur-Seine – France Visit Review: 14,2

This establishment has existed for more than 100 years (it is becoming rare!) and now managed by Gilles and Lorène Monti.    Menu a little bit complex to read because the most exciting dishes (the most elaborate) are not at the beginning. Indeed, the House, despite its peasant name, is partially oriented towards fish and seafood and offers an excellent choice of [...]

Le Club (i) – Paris – France Visit Review: 16

Each Parisian knows that since few years, boat owners have decided to end the disastrous reputation (and deserved at the time) of fluvial gastronomy. The Bateaux-Mouches are in this positive line and it is indeed to Christian Etchebest (and not Philippe, thanks avoiding confusion) that they asked to advise the menu of this fixed barge located on the banks of the Seine. And it is now [...]

L’Angélus du canal (i) – Paris – France Visit Review: 15,6

Gloria pour l'Angélus

After many and successful Singaporean pilgrimages, Gabriel de Balasy and Philippe Hoyez return to the banks of the Canal Saint-Martin for a successful bistronomic come-back.     Nice and wide choice of appetizers that do not exceed 10 euros (except for scallops and foie gras, normal!), juggling between the french regions, with the snails [...]

Amass – Copenhagen – Denmark Visit Review: 8

For 500 bucks, you got nothing

For 500 bucks, you find yourself in the harbor area of ​​Copenhagen, in front of an industrial building that does not even have the excuse of a certain originality, access via a metal staircase that gives little hope for disabled people. Maybe there is an elevator but it is well hidden. And there is no call bell.     For 500 bucks, you reach an [...]

Le Lys d’Or (i)- Paris – France Visit Review: 16,2

The lily always in bloom

From how many years of existence can a restaurant be considered as an institution? After 30 years, Le Lys d'Or could easily claim this distinction.    And without resting on its laurels. Indeed, without abandoning its gastronomic quality, Ms. Chen has transformed, with the effective collaboration of Manuel Mariani, her menu to focus on two culinary poles: the [...]

Les Caves Pétrissans – Paris – France Visit Review: 12

Not knead of passion

It's four handed with Arnaud Morisse from the blog www.restos-sur-le-grill.fr that we have tested this Parisian institution more than a century old even though the restaurant has only created near the cellar since 30 years. So, is it in the old cauldrons that we make the best soups? The least we can say is that as good restaurant lovers, our opinions are globally convergent on the [...]

Charles-Barrier – Tours – France Visit Review: 13,2

Barriers to star

If the house undoubtedly seeks to win back a star, some details seem unacceptable to these claims.  Charles Barrier Lustres  We will start with the frame that, if it is old, no one can challenge it, still has a certain charm. But the halogen light on the terrace is an ecological and visual aberration. The spots crush the table, create monstrous shadows of [...]
