In Other Words

Le Figaro (2020) returned to this “mythical” restaurant with chef Yannick Franques (MOF 2004, ex-La Réserve de Beaulieu) at the helm to find that it’s still as much of a dream as it always was.

Simon Says (2010) “… à la fois le répertoire daté de la Tour, une gastronomie muséifiée mais désarmante comme ces superbes  quenelles dans leur abstraction poudrée et soyeuse (toute une époque transformant à tour de bras). Le siècle est également présent avec ces plats tranchés, déstructurés, articulant ses diphtongues, procédant par phonèmes, onomatopées.”

Alexander Lobrano (2010) “… a formal space, elegantly decorated, a bit stiff, but the service was just as gallant as I remembered…would I go again? Yes, most definitely.”

John Talbott (2010) “… everything was perfect…an enormous staff, a monument to French cuisine, a superb view, a fine culinary theater piece and good ingredients.  In addition, I’ll bet if we went back next week the consistency would be impressive.  But there was no wow, no geewhiz, no razzle-dazzle…”
