Reviews of interest
John Talbott (2011) “… while there is an Alsatian spin to some dishes, the onion amuse gueule, for instance and the Alsatian white wines, it’s not pronounced…soup of cepes, foie gras and chestnuts… sauteed foie gras with pear, chestnuts and a chunk of baby lettuce; both were quite good.”
In Paris, it’s possible to do a Tour de France without a bicycle, since one of the most unique layers of the city’s food chain is its many French regional tables. Indeed the cooking of almost every corner of France is available in Paris, although some regions, notably the Auvergne and Alsace, are better represented than others, like the north of France, which has just a single address, Le Graindorge, vaunting such Flemish favorites as waterzooï (chicken and vegetables stewed in cream enriched bouillon) or carbonade, beef cooked in a sauce of beer.
