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 [...]

Taokan – Paris – France Visit Review: 11,8

Restaurant that we know immediately that a good part of the bill is made to pay more the decor than the plate. Not that it is bad but it is at the level of the claim.   The starters are of course more worked than at your Chinese caterer around the  street corner. You will not find this side slightly elastic for vapors and stickier than crisp for fried spring [...]

Au Bretzel – Paris – France Visit Review: 15,4

Rare à Paris

Except the big "brasseries" known by everybody, the small Alsatian restaurants are one of the rarities in Paris. It is true that we, the Alsatians, have never been able to ensure our promotion as Bretons or Aveyronnais. And with a minimalist website, a facade hidden in a small street of the fourteenth arrondissement, in the shadow of La Creole, you have to know to go [...]

L’Estrapade – Paris – France Visit Review: 10,6

One more dead !

There is nothing more disappointing than a restaurateur who sells his stock in trade to someone who can not follow the quality. Exactly what happened six months ago at the Estrapade, ex-pretty table of the 5th arrondissement.    However, we could still have hope with one of the house specialties, the Roquefort pear and chorizo, which go the [...]

Le Collectioneur (i) – Paris -France Visit Review: 16,2

Ne pas lui tourner le dos !

Gioachino Rossini would not have scorned sitting at this table that completes the elegant hotel Le Collectionneur. He who highlighted in the most beautiful way the myth of "The thieving magpie", and who was an amateur of good food, would surely have enjoyed seeing the two concepts of the diverse but harmonious collection get married at this modern and bright [...]

Le Trésor – Paris – France Visit Review: 12,6

The Marais district is full of food addresses.    Le Trésor is one of those trusted, working the Home made products, oriented to Auvergne specialties, including the inevitable aligot.But it was a little easy, so I rather tested for you the crisp pig foot. In cubic rolls (!), the crisp is perfect on the soft pig. The pig's juice served next to it will exhale the dish [...]

Le Comptoir du Relais – Paris – France Visit Review: 14,6

Expansive butter !

Why did I wait so much time testing Le Comptoir du Relais? Because I never queued! And at each of my passages in front of the establishment, the queue was for me crippling. Especially since the clients are often ruthlessly parceled and are regularly overtaken by the privileged guests of the neighboring hotel, property of the restaurant. For a place that refuses reservations to vulgum [...]
