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 [...]

La Bascule – Vincennes -France Visit Review: 15

Une bascule qui balance

As I am trying at all the restaurants of Vincennes, La Bascule is one of beautiful steps tested this day.   The menus for lunch at 20 or 26 euros make very accessible dishes very well made and without staying hungry.  The chicken "pressé" with foie gras is very good, accompanied by a chocolate sauce and a truffle ice cream that [...]

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 [...]

Les Bartavelles – Tours – France Visit Review: 15,8

Is it in homage to their father or by irrational love of the partridge that Veronique and Ghislain Damaye have denominated their establishment of the phasiniade of Marcel Pagnol?  Les Bartavelles Prière  In fact, it does not matter. What is important to remember is that this table, a little over a year after its opening, is one of the promising [...]

Le Lutetia Bar Joséphine – Paris -France Visit Review:

Although it is still a bit under renovation, the hotel Lutetia finally opened its doors a few months ago and now animates the neighborhood in a less noisy way.    The Joséphine bar is the attraction of the moment with its superb counter located in a bright room, overlooking the street through large windows and original frescoes rediscovered during the [...]

Le Collectionneur (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 [...]
