Pork belly at La Regalade Conservatoire restaurant in Paris | parisbymouth.com

La Régalade Conservatoire

Chef Bruno Doucet took over La Régalade from his boss Yves Camdeborde in 2004, then added La Régalade Saint Honoré in 2010. This third location, part of a new boutique hotel designed by Jean-Michel Wilmotte, opened in February 2013 and is serving classic Doucet bistro fare like house-made terrine, pork belly with lentils, sea bream with fennel, rice pudding, and a Grand Marnier soufflé. Affordably priced with prix-fixe menus at lunch (26€) and dinner (35€).

Reviews of interest

Aaron Ayscough (2014) “A course in restaurant archaeology. Somewhere, amid the incompletely obsequious service and the fossilized wine lists and the scattered décor, lay the bones of a pioneering restaurant concept.”

Caroline Mignot (2013) “La cuisson de ce cabillaud 1/2 sel rôti à la plancha est assez exceptionnelles, c’est ferme, il y a de la mâche et de la douceur en même temps, c’est extra.”

John Talbott (2013) “Don’t expect a gutsy repetition of the old original in the 14th or somewhat more refined St Honore version, to my taste-buds he’s gone a bit over the top with #3.”

Alexander Lobrano (2013) “Our main courses were excellent. Francois tucked into a big juicy steak sliced and presented on a mound of stewed beef cheeks and carrots in a red-wine enriched jus; Bruno and loved our griddled half-salted cod with a pistachio crust on a bed of winter vegetables and shellfish… After our main courses, a few sticking points registered. When the delightful hotel manager excused himself and went home, service fell off a cliff in the dining room… And as good as the food is and as attractive as Wilmotte’s dining room may be, this place has very little atmosphere. All of these flaws will doubtless be remedied as the restaurant settles in, however.”

François-Régis Gaudry (2013) “Bruno Doucet garde toujours les pieds sur terre. Même quand il s’adosse au Nell, un nouveau boutique hôtel designed by Jean-Michel Wilmotte et auréolé de 5 étoiles. Sa troisième Régalade… est un petit bijou en noir et blanc où le chef récite avec le même entrain sa formule magique : menu-carte entrée+plat+dessert à 35 € (valable le soir), avec toujours la terrine entière qui vous arrive en cadeau de bienvenue et cet anthologique riz au lait au rayon desserts, servi dans son saladier avec son petit pot de caramel au beurre salé…”
