Le Clos bourguignon – Paris – France Visit Review: 10,4

There is stil job!

Around theaters, it's always a bit like Russian roulette. Restaurants that display the "Homemade" brand hope to get away with it by attracting quality-conscious eaters. But this is not always enough because, in addition to knowledge, it has to do it and the material.     And it is the latter that is missing on Chablis-style snails. If the cream sauce is correct, the [...]

L’Estrapade – Paris – France Visit Review: 10,6

One more dead !

There is nothing more disappointing than a restaurateur who sells his stock in trade to someone who can not follow the quality. Exactly what happened six months ago at the Estrapade, ex-pretty table of the 5th arrondissement.     However, we could still have hope with one of the house specialties, the Roquefort pear and chorizo, which go the [...]

Le Trésor – Paris – France Visit Review: 12,6

The Marais district is full of food addresses.     Le Trésor is one of those trusted, working the Home made products, oriented to Auvergne specialties, including the inevitable aligot. But it was a little easy, so I rather tested for you the crisp pig foot. In cubic rolls (!), the crisp is perfect on the soft pig. The pig's juice served next to it will exhale the dish [...]

Le Comptoir du Relais – Paris – France Visit Review: 14,6

Expansive butter !

Why did I wait so much time testing Le Comptoir du Relais? Because I never queued! And at each of my passages in front of the establishment, the queue was for me crippling. Especially since the clients are often ruthlessly parceled and are regularly overtaken by the privileged guests of the neighboring hotel, property of the restaurant. For a place that refuses reservations to vulgum [...]

Hiney’s – Crossmolina – Eire Visit Review: 8,2

A culinary abyss

Is there an abyss of Irish cuisine? If so, it is probably located in Crossmolina where the Hiney's includes what is worse in the accomplished amateurism.     And yet what's more charming than a small Irish pub with some alcoholic old men idle in the middle of the day, an aquarium hanging at 2 meters, an invalid anesthetizing his pain with [...]

Louis Vins – Paris- France Visit Review: 15,2

Stil "on the road"

Thanks to the excellent application Lastable I decided to push the door of Louis Vins again. Indeed, 30% discount on the solids, I am not going to say no.     My last visit in September 2014 had left me a little unsatisfied. Although the food was good, I really felt the lack of a guideline in the kitchen. We did not know where we were [...]

Chez Savy – Paris – France Visit Review: 12,4

Quick lunch at the end of "Taste of Paris". Parisian institution that neither disappoints nor provokes ecstasy. Very good rillettes in amuse bouche.     A bib of good Angus and a well-made Bearnaise.     Original sweetbreads served on a strange bed of ziti (long macaroni).     Half carafe of red wine a bit expensive [...]

Bistro Mauzac – Paris – France Visit Review: 9,2

Cela fait cher la banalité

Writing on an average restaurant is probably the worst test of the gastronomic columnist. Nothing exceptional or really catastrophic to hang on, no memories created for the future, between anonymity and banality, neither for better nor for worse ...   So a sausage and a very commonplace aligot and who did not see much the hand of a craftsman.     A duck [...]

The Moose – Paris – France Visit Review: 10,6

Poutine, our friend!

Obviously nothing to do with Vladimir! But the Quebec specialty is one of the (many!) weak points of my beloved half. It melts as much as the famous cheddar that serves as the main element of this dish of the Belle Province. So I could not avoid having one day to cross the doors of one of the few Parisian establishments proposing the "thing".     At the end of a [...]

Zaoka – Paris – France Visit Review: 11

Let's be serious...

Dear restaurateur friends, a word of advice: be as afraid of positive opinions as of very negative ones. And stop running after the crazy rave. Having recently read about a restaurant at the discreet front of which I spent regularly, I thought I had to try. Result? Nothing more.     So obviously, it's an "exotic" restaurant. It therefore benefits from a priori [...]
