Au bœuf couronné – Paris – France Visit Review: 12.6

-

Institution which scarcely  needs a presentation. For the record, my grandfather frequented this establishment a few decades ago, not only because we found there the best meat in Paris but also because he regularly took his correspondents of Mossad who wanted do a cure of non-kosher products during their stay in Paris! I admit to having abandoned this place following two [...]

Pompeï – Paris – France Visit Review: 7.8

Pompeï killed twice.

As said (wrongly) Harpagon, we must eat to live and not live to eat.This restaurant comes within this framework. We are there to eat. It's not horribly bad but totally irrelevant. Salty pizza, elastic dough, suitable wine. An office clientele at noon. Price 8th district. 14 euros for a pizza with 3 ingredients, it calms right away. So only if you are very hungry and everything [...]

Le Récamier – Paris – France Visit Review: 13

THE soufflés !

Should we break the myth of the soufflé? In fact, it's pretty easy to do. But like many dishes, we make a great deal of fuss about it. As I am not a recipe site, I will avoid the description. On the other hand, once, take your courage with both hands and embark on it. It's very rewarding when you take it out of the oven. Be aware, however, that the only real difficulty is the blend [...]

Germany, and all that.

Small restaurant created in 1884, with practically only local customers. Very little space.Great Wienerschnitzel with asparagus and hollandaise sauce (it was the season!). A boss a little rough but in fact very nice account. Good German wines. The house does not have a dessert [...]

La Grande Cascade – Paris – France Visit Review: 14.6

-

The nineteenth century left us a large number of buildings that give Paris its invaluable charm. The Pavillon de la Grande Cascade is part of this heritage of the Second Empire.Under a high pitched ceiling or on the outdoor tables from the spring, Frederic Robert offers his gastronomic cuisine. Choice of the tasting menu at 192 euros. Very nice suite of very well worked [...]

L’Européen – Paris – France Visit Review: 12.2

-

A traditional Parisian Brasserie of which main originality lies in its interior architecture, the work of Slavik the decorator (Publicis drugstore, but also the Jules Verne until its renovation.) Disadvantage of the advantage, this restaurant is located just in front of the railway station of gare de Lyon, so extremely convenient to have a drink or a meal before your train or set a [...]
