Chez René – Paris – France Visit Review: 14

Lost tradition.

- Jean Yves

Beautiful setting, good service, nice menu. But a detail that kills, the coq au vin.

A real coq au vin is necessarily marinated (not three days, I know, there are sanitary standards) in red wine. When you are served one whose inner flesh is completely white …, it means that the poultry was cooked separately, in a basic way, and that we added nicely a wine sauce (quite thick ) beside. This is honestly good, but far from the “tradition” spirit that the establishment wants to pass.

But you have to know a little about cooking so you do not get caught. Then, how to trust the rest of the menu? And to avoid this problem, the coq had been remove from the menu.

And obviously, it’s quite expensive …
