Reviews of interest

Alexander Lobrano (2013) “Without ever becoming fussy, Mr. Frechon’s appealing menu cleverly moves brasserie dining toward a more elegant register with dishes like a tartare of oysters and scallops garnished with a lemon-and-curry-flavored foam and veal sweetbreads glazed with Comté cheese and vin jaune…The hostesses can be chilly, and the service disorganized.”

Patricia Wells (2011) “a Paris restaurant with a welcoming outdoor terrace, open non-stop seven days a week from 10 am to midnight, service that’s polite (if a bit slow) and food that is utterly modern, fresh and seasonal. I’d call it Grand Slam.”

Thierry Richard (2011) “…sans aucun doute une des terrasses les plus agréables…Une table gentiment fusion…C’est joliment fait et de très bonne tenue pour une salle transatlantique qui défile les couverts par dizaines.”

François Simon (2011) “Le lieu est magnifique, surtout aux beaux jours…Parfait pour une clientèle choisie de se retrouver autour d’assiettes jouant pianissimo mais non sans efficacité…”

John Talbott (2010) “..inside it was gorgeous, stunning, beautiful and I breathed freely.  Before ordering they served an amuse bouche of a mini-brioche…Then I decided to have the formula (28 E for two dishes) and he two entrees with dessert (32 E); not bad eh for three-star grub?”

Alexander Lobrano (2010) “Handsome though this room might be, I’d never be tempted if the food weren’t good, and happily it’s very good…Dining with friends, we loved the brilliant clafoutis of ceps mushrooms, squid with pil-pil sauce…and all of us eyeballed a gorgeous looking rock-lobster club sandwich as it went by on a waiter’s tray, too…”

Barbra Austin via Girls’ Guide to Paris (2010) “In the spirit of a brasserie, Le Mini Palais is open every day with continuous service, which makes it an elegant choice for a late lunch, a snack, an afternoon tea or an apéro.”
