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, [...]

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 [...]

L’Alsacien – Paris – France Visit Review: 15.4

Flams!

For pity's sake, come here instead of pushing the doors of this awful chain offering so-called Alsatian flamekueches, industrial dough and the anemic filling.Obviously, it's less big, but it's more friendly and traditional. Obviously, they give in a little modernity in Auvergne declension or shrimp. But as long as they do not bring us the Hawaiian with pineapple and chicken barbecue [...]

Le Relais de la Poste – Pithiviers – France Visit Review: 11.8

Bungle a Pithiviers at Pithiviers.

For me, Pithiviers is one of those cities that I can hardly locate on a map, with others like Oyonnax or Mont-de-Marsan. I have to make a stop there to prove to myself that they exist. And no matter how much you explore Wikipedia, you will not find anything remarkable about this city. Not a nuclear war, not an international treaty, not an illustrious person to turn it into [...]

Joséphine-Chez Dumonet (T800) – Paris – France Visit Review: 16.2

-

I admit it, here I am totally subjective. Normal, I spent four months in the kitchens of this restaurant for my CAP (NVQ) Cuisine course in Ferrandi. To learn more, I encourage you to read the "About" tab.I first pushed the door of this restaurant more than 25 years ago. My mother's husband had his habits and I still remember a salad of lamb's lettuce with Perigord black [...]

Le petit Lutetia – Paris – France Visit Review: 12.8

Show off?!!

You know Joséphine-Chez Dumonet? Well, Le petit Lutetia is the same thing but trendy, same type of traditional cuisine up-market, noticeably less worked, and revised to make more chic. And as it is stamped "Costes", it works. So the steak has become a "fucking" steak, the lobster is "spicy", the crab is "king" and has "a lot" of crab.   Of course you pay [...]

La Cloche d’Or – Paris – France Visit Review: 13.6

Phoenix

Place that rises from the ashes since suffered a fire some time ago. Fortunately, the autographed photos of the many artists who ate here have been saved. It is always Damien Bagarre who holds the beating at night, my favorite moment. Even if the schedules are now a little shortened. The bell rings at 1 AM, as it let us before until the end of the night. Crisis and social charges? [...]

Entre terre et mer – Honfleur – France Visit Review: 13

it's waaaaaaar!

This one make a pair with La Petite Marmitte at Lamotte-Beuvron, although the cuisine is of better quality. Why? Because "the blonde lady" (or chef Levesque himself?) is a real battle-ax on Tripadvisor. When I have blues, I read their responses to customers who have had the unfortunate idea to make a semblance of contradictory comment. Then, "It's waaaaaaar"! Between encouraging them [...]
