3-Michelinstar restaurant with more than excellent dishes and impressive winelist. Professional service. Just one big WOW. A must for foodlovers
Top quality, but: 1) the service was a bit slow; 2) some ingredients like beetroots and onions were repeated in a couple of dishes; 3) location is not very inspiring
Amazing experience. Having watched Chef Alain Passard featured on Netflix’s Chefs Table: France, season 1, we fell in love with the idea and boldness exhibited by the Chef when he took meat off the menu for a time to try and find himself, and the joy of cooking once again. Risking his 3 Michelin Stars, the story was about introspection and rediscovery. What he found was higher acclaim than he ever had, and a renewed sense of purpose. My wife and I arrived at 8pm for our reservation and were treated like royalty from the moment we entered. This is world-class dining. The chef spends about 2/3 of the night in the kitchen, 1/3 enjoying the company of his guests and playing host. The restaurant is intimate but totally unpretentious. The servers and staff laugh and joke with the guests, and Chef Passard is affable and very engaging with everyone. It very much feels like dining in the living room of an old friend. I had the vegetarian tasting menu, my wife opted for the menu with meat included. 9 courses plus two dessert courses, and some surprises tossed in. Gastronomy at its finest, the meal was out of this world. Following the meal, we exchanged some nice conversation with the Chef and took pictures with him, and left, in total amazement at what we’d just experienced. A few points of (possible) interest:First, they did us a solid and charged us in USD. We didn’t ask them to, they just did, and at a $1,500 Euro price tag, that little gesture saved us a couple hundred bucks. Second, for those unaccustomed to dining at gourmet, Michelin-star type restaurants, it’s not a bad idea to work up to this place, as it was ranked #8 in the world in 2018. My first experience with this type of a restaurant (decades ago) was somewhat unpleasant, because the flavors can be very unique. Third, we left at 12:30am. A meal here is an hours-long process, and thank God it is. We didn’t want the night to end!Finally, although it would be impossible for me to fully explain why, I can say with utter conviction, that this was the best meal and dining experience of my life. I’ve been to several world-class restaurants in numerous countries, but the genuine joy that Chef Passard and his staff display for the food, the art, the craft, the atmosphere ... was like nothing I’ve ever seen before. It was as though he sought perfection with every dish, but did so with a playful, whimsical demeanor that seemed so out of place. That joy, it was intoxicating. From start to finish, this experience was our deepest honor. Thank you, Arpege!
