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

A good 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

Don't turn him your back

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 [...]

Joséphine Chez Dumonet -Paris – France Visit Review: 16,2

Back to the roots

Back to the roots after a long holidays! With the winter approaching, it was necessary to revise my bases, the sauce knowledges, the foie gras and stuffed morels. Is there a better place than the restaurant in which I've done my graduation? It is therefore light (and stomach!) hearted that I brought one of my oldest friends. Joséphine Chez Dumonet Maître [...]

Le Rouget de l’Isle – Casablanca – Maroc Visit Review: 14,8

Sacrilège ! ou pas...

In 2017, I promised myself I would take a complete tour of Le Rouget de l'Isle, one of Casablanca's chic restaurants. At this time, I had only had one drink (and visited the kitchens!) on the balcony overlooking the superb terrace and garden of this villa in the beautiful Casablanca districts, transformed into a restaurant by Taki Kabbaj, its owner and chef.    The [...]
