One of the places I like to visit for the lunch, but also for their brunch currently. Warm welcoming, always a table available, and mainly: the chef’s ability to cook such a variety of different dishes.
Café Figue – Front Door
From starters to desserts, her inspiration has no limits. It is possible to taste here a Japanese speciality, and an African one the next day. I would like to say: always well done. Continue reading →
In Côte d’Azur, and specifically in Nice there is not too many restaurants we can recommend. If you cannot afford to eat in a palace, there is maybe Keisuke Matsushima. Few gems can be found and I wish to go to try them soon! I have a little place to recommend.
It may look like a tourist trap but it is not. A real ice cream maker in the heart of the old town exists. A visit to Nice cannot be complete without tasting one of their creations.
From vanilla to coke, chocolate to figs, or beer to Piña Colada… I believe they almost have no limits. Continue reading →
This historic restaurant does not joke with the meat quality they serve. And people know it, it is almost always full and getting a table needs a highly recommended reservation in advance.
Restaurant Front – Louchebem – Paris, FRANCE
Of course you can try your luck to book a table the same day, or to go to line-up to get seated, if you are patient. The reputation about this restaurant is totally justified. Even it is already packed with lot of visitors, the menu and the quality remain interesting.
The day I visited this place it was not so busy, waiting time acceptable, seated next to the chef: perfect. I admit I tried to come 20 minutes before the opening hours to be sure we could have a good seat. It wasn’t a waste of time!
The chef is famous after showcasing in a TV show (Top Chef), he demonstrated his talent weekly. Energetic and inventive, a visit at his restaurant is always an interesting experience.
The vibe here is different than in other few similar places. You can enjoy a cup of coffee (or tea) just in front the counter. If you are curious, you can go to the basement which offer a unique old cave style room, but it not seems to be in use actually..
Great experience at Rino, this modern restaurant which is highly recommended by the epicurean bloggers from more than two years now. Even they announced recently that their restaurant is going to shutdown in one month, it is still quite serious here. (March 22nd is expected to be the last opening day).
Storefront – Rino – Paris, FRANCE
At the time I made my reservation for a Saturday lunch, I immediately felt warmly welcomed, and when I arrived there, the waiters were really nice. Friendly service. Continue reading →
