Le Procope – Paris – France Visit Review: 11,6

So neglected

The Procope remains faithful to the disinterest that it generates. It is with an unparalleled work force that everything is combined to make an establishment that is not very suitable an unpleasant memory without being disastrous.    First of all, be crudely denied access to the floor under the pretext that all the tables would be taken, when we know the [...]

La Réserve – Paris – France Visit Review:


If music softens manners, poetry is not far off in the art of flourishing minds. This is how Jean-Luc Naret imagined it by creating poetic breakfasts one Saturday a month in its setting of La Réserve.    On the 14th of April, it was the manes of Charles Baudelaire who were crossing the library of the place, between the piano and the inner [...]

Le Cherche Midi (Dum Dum !) – Paris – France Visit Review: 9,6

Carnage at Colonnata...

  What more can you shout than "Murderers!" when you make a Bacon Colonnata suffer as they do in this establishment? And yet, the College Culinaire de France label could make believe that here they respect such a beautiful product.  The photo tickles your brain? Oh yes ! Not only is there a lemon, but the bacon is bathed in this juice. No sooner it has passed the [...]

L’Essentiel – Deauville – France Visit Review: 15,4

I've got gut ! That's Essentiel !

Visit that is just prior obtaining the Michelin star. But don't be fooled, I have not changed a line! After the exhaustive list of TripAdvisor, friends are my second selection of restaurants. You, dear reader, you also have my blog, and I thank you for following me! Being the last stop of our stay in Deauville, normal that I take care of the selection. No great originality as [...]

Pavillon Augustine – Trouville – France Visit Review: 14

Face to pavilions

This is exactly the type of disconcerting establishment. Because on the outside appearance, we rather want to escape this modern pavilion with large windows, which looks more like the tourist trap than the honest table. But on the advice of a friend, I pushed the door. Even if Antigone II Gonatas said: "Keep me from my friends, my enemies, I take care of it", sometimes you have to [...]

Le Bréard – Honfleur – France Visit Review: 12,6

Très doux, trop doux.

Who was Charles Bréard? I think I spent more time trying to figure out who this gentleman was than writing this article. And yet I do not think he is small. Writer and historian of the nineteenth century, he left to posterity only a few books on the navy and sailors. As well as his name at a restaurant in Honfleur. Probably his best posterity.The restaurant has a nice atmosphere, [...]

Les Etiquettes – Trouville – France Visit Review: 12,2

Still in my series "What is the No. 1 on Tripadvisor in this city?", I tested Les Etiquettes in Trouville, which alternates regularly with Les Affiches.The room is small, nice decoration around the wine, since it is true that the first selling point is the shelves of liquids that cover two walls. But all bottles are vertical, so we suspect that there is a very strong rotation. We [...]

A la table du bon roi Stanislas – Nancy France Visit Review: 11,2

Le roi est bon. Quant à l'assiette...

What is the N° 1 restaurant on TripAdvisor in Nancy worth? Its business is to propose a cooking based on original recipes of the 18° century and polish inspiration, King Stanislas requires. Thus the rum baba, invented by Nicolas Stohrer, the vol-au-vent or the Madeleine.    The partner who manages the room is an excellent seller who knows his menu very well and [...]

La Maison dans le Parc – Nancy – France Visit Review: 14,8

Nice Maison in a nice parc.

La Maison dans le Parc, Nancy's only Michelin-starred restaurant, under the direction of chef Françoise Mutel, could not avoid my passage. And this was definitely the best step of my four stops. At my next visit, I will try to visit château d'Adomenil, near Luneville, which is the only comparable house nearby.    The dining-room is classic, in black, overlooking a [...]

Le Bugatti – Paris – France Visit Review: 13.8

It's a so long time…

Almost 30 years I know the Bugatti and its owner, Jo Dandachi, of Lebanese origin.Always a smiling service, efficient, and quality Italian food. Fresh products. The particuliarity is a style "sweet box" style, rather improbable, consequence of the accumulation for years of various and varied objects. Strange but has its charm. In addition, Jo organized many receptions for Miss [...]
