The restaurant

September 24, 2015

The Hotel based in the Saint-Germain area in Paris, houses the “Restaurant” (it’s not a mistake, it is the restaurant’s real name), a Michelin star rated restaurant which surroundings are exceptional. The place has been decorated by Jacques Garcia. Jacques Garcia is a talented interior designer who has worked on numerous projects such as the interior concepts achievements of the Méridien group hotels, the Royal Monceau in Paris or the renovation of the Group Lucien Barrière hotels and restaurants (in which the Fouquet’s is part).

I went there wih my husband a few weeks ago to celebrate his 29’s (we get older and older every day and are each day closer to the thirties). As the weather was lovely, we had the chance to have lunch on the heated terrace. It was so calm that we felt being in the countryside, alongside a stream (a fountain miming the water sound), far from Paris turmoil.

At the Restaurant, the chef Julien Montbabut offers a French classical cuisine with a modern touch. We ate refined dishes, visually extraordinary and prepared with very good quality and seasonal products.

You can order à la carte or have a menu. We had the lunch menu; a very free formula as you can, depending on your appetite, have a main course for 35€, a starter/main course or a main course/dessert for 45€ or the complete one with starter, main course and dessert for 55€.

Personnally, I loved my experiment at the Restaurant. The food is refined, delicious, associations simple and vey well balanced (I remember a dinner at the l’Hostellerie de la Renaissance restaurant where the dessert was too complex for me, there were more than 10 flavours and textures and it completely disoriented my palate) and cooking times and seasonings perfect. I had a crush on my fish dish : the espuma brought lightness, the fish flesh was smelting and the different textures and flavours perfectly well combined. A real delight!

Hope I have instilled you the desire to discover that amazing place. Have a nice day, Xxx.

      C’est un dessert au chocolat et au thé vert. Dans les cornets, il n’y a que du chocolat sous différentes formes (différentes mousses à textures différentes) et le thé vert est sous forme de biscuit croustillant (ce sont les croquettes vertes que l’on voit dans l’assiette). Belle soirée
