Le Cheval rouge – Sainte-Menehould – France Visit Review: 13


Inescapable stop of my childhood: Sainte-Menehould and the Cheval rouge. If its weekly closures allowed me to discover the restaurant A mon idée, in the same city, this is not a reason to forget this place. In 2011, I managed to feed my Australian co-driver the famous pig's foot, so that at 60 years old, he could return to his island continent with an additional discovery. You [...]

Au Trou gascon – Paris – France Visit Review: 14.2


The institution is the desperation of the gastronomic chronicler. Making a paper once again dithyrambic at the risk of tiring the reader who will say to himself "Another one who was feed for free" or to make a takedown piece unjustified to make the buzz and be sure you have a few press covers when you are in the dark about notoriety. Well, it's difficult because I paid my check and [...]

La Tour d’Argent – Paris – France Visit Review: 14.4

Incredible view

I hesitated to make an article about a restaurant that I have not visited for almost 10 years. But attending regularly during the 90s, I wish to share with you some excellent souvenirs even if the house has difficulties to get up on its feet. First, the duck "au sang". Institution in the institution. My grandfather ate one in the 30s and threw his numbered duck card shortly before [...]

Monteverdi – Paris – France Visit Review:

Jam session!

This is one of the few restaurants that I have not done since a long time but which is in my list because I have an excellent souvenir there. The attached photos are those of the birthday of Claudio Monteverdi's son. I had the good idea to be the only one to take a camera! It is true that in 2005, mobile phones were not what they are today. So I could keep track of this memorable [...]

Itinéraires – Closed Visit Review:

Ah zut ! It's closed.

It is often said "as luck would have it". (We all know, however, a few people who probably were not random.) And it was this one that drove me for a lunch to this establishment run by Sarah and Sylvain Sendra, to the nice fame, but whose only the passage nearby decided me to go through the doors. After all, I went to Kitchen Ter (re) two weeks ago. Let's continue to skim. I say that [...]

Bleu de Toi Visit Review:

Restaurant which fortunately closed because it had become a tourist trap. Using an excellent place on TripAdvisor, the bosses have let go to lower quality while keeping prices indecent. The lowered curtain is only [...]

Le Clos Visit Review:

Restaurant that closed in the meantime and the conclusion of my article was premonitory: To say the least it is that the comment for this restaurant is difficult to achieve. For the positive, I would put at the pinnacle foie gras absolutely fabulous, very fine, while I rarely take foie gras restaurant because I think I do it very well myself. And if I could taste it, it's because our [...]

Chez Christophe Visit Review:

Restaurant unfortunately closed. The decoration? Awful! A wine cupboard moooooonstruous, a pale lighting, wall paintings "artistic". Despite walls covered with special canvases, even half full, the restaurant was very noisy. More, the tables had no tablecloths. Then, what was worth the trip: exceptional products, a perfect job. I had a brains of lamb (8 euros) and sweetbread (28 [...]

Ribouldingue Visit Review:


Rakish menu restaurant, working entrails and tripe. Closure most likely due to poor quantity / price analysis. The products were quality but when you propose this type, it is a very specific clientele that is concerned. And if it agrees to pay for these out-of-the-ordinary products, it also needs to have its plate both well done and full. Anemic portions are redibitory. It has been [...]

Le Fleurvil Visit Review:

Restaurant with a traditional appearance but whose work did not follow. So it logically closed. Interesting snails, Bresse chicken a bit overcooked, banal frog legs, minimalist presentation. Nice wine list, friendly service. It was a nice table years ago but even if it was not bad, it was simply [...]
