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 [...]

Charles-Barrier – Tours – France Visit Review: 13,2

Barriers to star

If the house undoubtedly seeks to win back a star, some details seem unacceptable to these claims.  Charles Barrier Lustres  We will start with the frame that, if it is old, no one can challenge it, still has a certain charm. But the halogen light on the terrace is an ecological and visual aberration. The spots crush the table, create monstrous shadows of [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

Belleek Castle – Ballina – Eire Visit Review: 15,8

The castle of drunk beef

The Belleek Castle looks a bit like fairy tales. After crossing a huge fortified gate, you travel several hundred meters in a large wooded park to finally appearing at the corner of a bend, placed on a hill, a castle with gray hues contrasting incredibly with a grass of a green not found.    Crossing the front door, you are immersed in a world [...]

Bistrot Buci Mazarine – Paris – France Visit Review: 14,6

Riche lieu rue Mazarine.

As summer approached, it was time to stock up on the last cassoulet of the season. Although, it would not scare me in the middle of August ... but I will not be in Paris in August! Small dinner alone on the terrace of this restaurant Alain Dutournier.   Classic and well made terrine of sweetbreads and hazelnuts. We feel good quality elements worked very well. A [...]

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 Chaumière – Aubigny-sur-Nère – France Visit Review: 14,2

Better and better

From one year to the next, it is a sensible progress that we feel on the plate. During my first visit in late 2016, I noticed an interesting touch but with a je-ne-sais-quoi uncompleted. My visit in December 2017 showed me significant progress at all levels. Except perhaps the service which sometimes "act like nothing's". Small appetizers and classic appetizers.We start with a [...]

Auberge le Beauharnais (T800) – La Ferté-Beauharnais – France Visit Review: 16.4

More and more

  I do not count my visits in this house that includes everything I like in traditional dishes. But who knows how to get up to date without losing any of its marks. As noted last time, the boar's head was replaced by an elegant deer. The first is now at home!   It has become for me a stopping point for every stay in Sologne. Even if the foie gras [...]

Chez Paul – Paris – France Visit Review: 14.6

Ever and ever

It seems that, from Lyon to Paris, the restaurants "Chez Paul" are all in their own juice! But this one is definitely bigger than the Lyon place.As the years went by, it spread over several buildings and several floors. This gives the whole a quirky appearance that contributes to the charm of the place. The decoration is also made of odds and ends, paintings, mirrors, posters, [...]
