Loubnane -Paris – France Visit Review: 15,8

Real Lebanon from cellar to attic

Can we still be objective when we have known a restaurant for almost 30 years? We can always try. But, indeed, there is not much to say about the cuisine offered by the Loubnane. Even a (critical!) Lebanese friend of mine, who discovered the place three years ago, made it one of her canteens. That's all there is to it!    Loubnane Table haut [...]

Au pied de fouet – Paris – France Visit Review: 13,6

In the series "we are looking for a good restaurant in a tourist street", let's explore Saint-Benoit Street. We start today with Au pied de fouet, a small two-level establishment that is still in its juice.      We start with an excellent homemade terrine, made of large pieces of rabbit and veal head. The whole gives a soft texture. We smell [...]

Crêperie Onze – La Garenne-Colombes – France Visit Review: 15,6

Souvenirs! Souvenirs!

How many remembrances reminded me of this Master Class organized by the owners of the Onze crêperie! Work of the dough as Françoise Caradec, a pancakes maker from my childhood in Fouesnant did. With her muscular arms (and yes, no machine drummer!), she kneaded buckwheat flour, water, and eggs by hand.    And that's how this Garenne-Colombes restaurant [...]

Bouillon Pigalle – Paris – France Visit Review: 13,2

I bow

God knows I had my preconceptions about this restaurant which, in a short time, managed to get far so many praising articles. I didn't push the door of my own but following a family reunion. Exceptional luck, I avoided the frightening queue managed more than disorderly.    Without corrupting anyone, we were placed on the terrace of the first floor, thus avoiding [...]

Chez L’Ami Fritz – Sarrebourg – France Visit Review: 15,4

Go East !

Just with a name like that, you can imagine that we are in eastern France. In Sarrebourg to be exact.    It is the locals who spent time on the school benches in Alsace and Lorraine who will know a little more than l'Ami Fritz is a character from a novel written by two authors from the East, Emile Erckmann and Alexandre Chatrian. It is the story of a bon vivant [...]

Il était une fois… – Provins – France Visit Review: 13,8

...in the East of Paris.

Bizarre restaurant located at the bottom of the coast which goes to the downtown of Provins. A 19th-century house, which also makes guest rooms, clinging to the hillside, overlooks a beautiful park and shelters this establishment blending decorative styles.   Of course, when I tell you that the building belongs to Stella Cadente (Stanislassia Klein), you will retort [...]

La table Saint-Jean – Provins – France Visit Review: 14,2

Generous

The restaurants in Provins are divided like the city, between the upper and lower. And the first one includes most of the pretty tables. There are of course some exceptions that you will find throughout my blog.     La table Saint-Jean offers a pretty menu of traditional and well-crafted dishes.    Snails, sweetbreads, calf's head follow each other on the [...]

Le Club (i) – Paris – France Visit Review: 16

Each Parisian knows that since few years, boat owners have decided to end the disastrous reputation (and deserved at the time) of fluvial gastronomy. The Bateaux-Mouches are in this positive line and it is indeed to Christian Etchebest (and not Philippe, thanks avoiding confusion) that they asked to advise the menu of this fixed barge located on the banks of the Seine. And it is now [...]

L’Angélus du canal (i) – Paris – France Visit Review: 15,6

Gloria for the Angélus

After many and successful Singaporean pilgrimages, Gabriel de Balasy and Philippe Hoyez return to the banks of the Canal Saint-Martin for a successful bistronomic come-back.     Nice and wide choice of appetizers that do not exceed 10 euros (except for scallops and foie gras, normal!), juggling between the french regions, with the snails [...]

Les Caves Pétrissans – Paris – France Visit Review: 12

Not knead of passion

It's four handed with Arnaud Morisse from the blog www.restos-sur-le-grill.fr that we have tested this Parisian institution more than a century old even though the restaurant has only created near the cellar since 30 years. So, is it in the old cauldrons that we make the best soups? The least we can say is that as good restaurant lovers, our opinions are globally convergent on the [...]
