Reviews of interest

Patricia Wells (2011) “His modern, all-grey dining room seats just 20 or so diners, with an open kitchen and a stool-height table d’hotes. His food is spontaneous, light, and both playful and serious at the same time. He is a fan of  sous vide or cooking ingredients vacuum-sealed in a low-temperature water bath. And he loves to get to the essence of an ingredient, turning it into dried powders that work a special magic.”

John Talbott (2011) “… surprise/market menu of the moment, no choices, take it or leave it. The main course was a faux filet of beef with a sweet potato puree, a tiny smear of burnt peanuts… also great… dessert was/were one of the best uses of mango… and some lime ice cream.”

Le Figaro (2011) “… très construites sous l’apparence du spontané, légères comme fil de lin. Même si usé d’avoir trop servi, plaidons ici un talent soudain réenchanté.”
