  • Chrisoscope (2012) “Le boeuf vient d’Aubrac, d’Ecosse, d’Argentine ou du Kansas, fourni par deux très belles maisons : Hugo Desnoyers et les boucheries nivernaises…je garde l’adresse en tête pour la prochaine fois que j’aurais un besoin urgent de rouge et de viande rouge dans le quartier.”

Reviews of interest

  • Emmanuel Rubin – Figaroscope (2012) “une vraie pépite de quartier où…une cuisine d’ardoise, vive et volubile…”
  • Alexander Lobrano (2011) “Thierry’s food was well-sourced, original and assiduously well-cooked in terms of timing, texture and heat at the table…great for casual dining and a good place to see just how cosmopolitan contemporary French cooking has become…”
  • John Talbott (2011) “He’s got talent. Everybody in Paris these days, says they do a cuisine du marche, but this guy really walks the walk…”

Blend

We had high hopes for this place. With beef sourced from renowned butcher Yves-Marie le Bourdonnec, Blend should be better than it is. The “gourmet” hamburger is mushy without any sear, and the fries rarely arrive hot or with the burger.

Reviews of interest

  • Caroline Mignot (2012) “Pain moelleux et légèrement brioché, viande épaisse et goûteuse… Les frites, ah les frites de patate douce, une tuerie!!! Très sucrées, il faut aimer, mais à la croustillance parfaite et grassouilettes comme il faut, j’ai beaucoup aimé.”
  • Chrisoscope (2012) “Niveau qualité, c’est très bien, niveau quantité, j’en aurais bien mangé plus… Si la qualité des produits et le soucis du fait maison sont louables, je regrette deux choses : que les burgers ne soient pas plus copieux, et qu’ils ne soient pas proposés en version plus simple, sans complications inutiles.”
  • Alexander Lobrano (2012) “Even though I’d have liked this magnificent mound of meat cooked much rarer, this little baby turned out to be a beauty of a burger, and the fries were terrific, too… And hats off to Camille Malmquist again for those amazingly good hamburger buns.”

  • François-Régis Gaudry (2011) “….céleri rémoulade et Cobb salad, Cheese burger et plateau de fruits de mer, cheese cake et poire Belle Hélène. Menilmontant et Manhattan, même combat….Floréal aurait droit à un truc du genre : « A des facilités et beaucoup d’imagination, mais ne les exploitent pas jusqu’au bout. Peut mieux faire… »”
  • Gilles Pudlowski (2011) “Les gens du quartier, branchés ou débranchés, en terrasse, les bobos curieux à l’intérieur. La maison fait rendez-vous en continue, table aimable….Mais le lieu a des prétentions gourmandes…et tout n’est pas parfait, loin de là…”
  • Phyllis Flick (2011) “The bun was homemade, as were the fries, making it one of the best burgers I’ve had in Paris…This is probably also the only place in Paris where I’ve ever overheard a table of chic looking Parisians order hot-dogs for dinner.”

Reviews of interest

  • Time Out (2013) “Its squishy sofas are the perfect complement to its comfort food: it specialises in baked goods, and the famed lemon meringue and chocolate fondant are divine. At weekends it’s packed out with tourists in search of brunch; long queues of people looking enviously at your plate, plus occasionally patchy service, can mar the experience.”

Reviews of interest

  • Barbra Austin (2011) “The place has its charms. Unfortunately, the food is not one of them…Lion’s head meatballs were bland, wrapped in undercooked cabbage leaves and wading in a wan broth. Eggplant with pork was heavy and under-seasoned…”
  • Gilles Pudlowski (2011) “…huit tables, un coin de vente à emporter, des couleurs guillerettes, du mur à la banquette, des menus amusants (tout « fondue chinoise » ou tout « marmite d’agneau » à partager), des plats savoureux, parfumés et frais, dénotant un réel doigté.”
  • François-Régis Gaudry – L’Express (2011) “Le chef est d’origine shangaïenne, sa femme est cantonnaise et ils servent au moins deux plats dont je raffole : les navets au chou, farcis d’une préparation tofu-enoki-pignons ; et la salade de concombre au piment et à la coriandre…”
  • Alexander Lobrano (2011) “…a really terrific Chinese place in the ‘hood…I started with excellent Shanghai style grilled dumplings–they were so good and so delicately seasoned with chopped green onion and fresh ginger…”
  • Sophie Brissaud (2010) “…ça sert des plats cantonais légers et bien tournés avec quelques incursions vers le Hunan, c’est décoré vif et acidulé comme une boutique de design thaïlandais (banquette à gros pois), c’est BYOB (apportez votre vin), et ce qui sort des mains du chef d’origine shanghaïenne…est parfumé, savoureux et irréprochable. C’est Q-Tea et dépêchez-vous d’y aller.”
  • John Talbott (2010) “…we had a salad of bitter cucumber and some kind of sliced sweet pear, Shanghai spring rolls with bok choy, fish with slightly hot red pepper on cellophane noodles, a seafood, tofu and XO marmite, chicken croustillant (that I thought was the hit of the evening)…”

  • Thierry Richard (2011) “les assiettes qui s’ensuivent ne décoivent pas dans cette veine italo-sophistiquée qui passe les standards transalpins à la moulinette de la modernité….dans son genre haut du panier, l’une des meilleures tables italiennes de la capitale. Service de palace et prix à l’avenant.”
  • Alexander Lobrano (2011) “The remodeled Il Carpaccio is very pretty…Unfortunately, even though Rispoli’s debut dish–mackerel with Italian fatback, preserved lemon and a salad of  bitter greens–was very pretty, it was also monastic and very bland, odd for such a full-flavored fish. Next up, a fancy vegetable minestrone… again, very bland.”
  • Emmanuel Rubin – Le Figaro (2010) “une Italie comme on en croise rarement…Tête de cèpe farcie : si l’automne avait un goût, ce plat lui ressemblerait ! Tortellini de pintade, châtaigne et son bouillon : on en boufferait jusqu’à la porcelaine de l’assiette.”

  • John Talbott (2010) “Madame L. had the signature Basque dish a piperade with an egg and the two men had something described as cru-cuit mushrooms which we both wrongly assumed would have something warm, not so, the cru, the cuit and the cuisinarted mushrooms were all tiede.   Hummmm.   I wrote down “good but not great” just before he said something similar…”
  • François-Regis Gaudry – l’Express (2010) “…de l’envie, de l’idée, de l’air du temps humé à pleins poumons mais une exécution qui manque un peu de souffle.”
  • Alexander Lobrano – The New York Times (2010) “…some of the best modern French country cooking to be found anywhere in Gaul right now, including such dishes as tartare of maigre (a firm white-fleshed Atlantic fish) with roasted fennel bulb, pumpkin seeds and chickpea puree; a foie-gras “hamburger”; and a sublime brandade made with foie gras and leeks.”

  • François-Régis Gaudry – L’Express (2010) “Un grand talent, caché dans une petite cave…Il n’y a pas grand monde pour faire l’effort de descendre dans cette petite cave aveugle et voûtée pas franchement engageante, avec ses velours beigeasses, ses sets de table dorés, son mobilier néorococo un peu cheap et son feu de cheminée sur écran plat…Akrame Benallal fait l’effet d’un naufragé sur une île déserte qui fait des grands signes face à l’horizon dans l’espoir qu’on le repère.”
  • Emmanuel Rubin – Le Figaro (2010) “Il y a quelque chose de gentiment schizo dans cette table qui, à trop se voir planquée (en cave, sous les pierres voûtées d’un petit hôtel boudoir), se cherche une contenance en surjouant des menus surprises un poil fardés…”

  • John Talbott (2011) “The exterior looked like a thousand places in the 1950’s and the interior is “wow-ee,” evoking Jacques Tati’s ‘Playtime’ sets, circa mid-1960’s…innovative cooking, nifty decor, fun choices and oh so easy prices.”
  • Caroline Mignot (2010) “Un décor 50’s, pile dans la tendance annoncée, Mad Men, fashion, design…Un melting pot d’ingrédients, grec, turc, japonais, qui se perdent un peu dans le superflu. En fait, j’ai été déçue, j’y goûtais de la confusion et des plats malhabiles.”
  • Pudlo (2010) “Côté cuisine…de mets ménagers un brin fusion, mitonnés au gré du marché et de la saison. Les menus sont gentils tout pleins, l’unique serveur gambade, sourit, raconte, mais à peine.”
  • François-Régis Gaudry – L’Express (2010) “Bien sûr, certains plats s’emmêlent un peu les fuseaux, comme ce saumon un rien jetlagué… Mais on préfère encore l’échappée belle d’une vraie cuisine d’auteur… au train-train du énième néobistrot copiant des banalités sur l’ardoise du voisin.”
  • Bruno Verjus (2010) “Une cuisine en devenir, un lieu très Fooding.”

Reviews of interest

  • Alexander Lobrano (2012) “…superb…Though compatible with Pele’s approach, Kanayama’s cooking is actually much subtler and even more quietly provocative when it comes to sensual contrasts of texture, as seen in a sublime little dish of lobster with grilled banana in lemon-verbena foam…La Bigarrade remains an urgently well-recommended…”
  • John Talbott (2012) “it’s a “forced” or “surprise” menu and the plates (with identifying announcements in French or English) roll out one after another…A strawberry/foie gras concoction, marinated fish with microtomed cauliflower, razor clams with petit pois and apricots…barbue with carrots and orange slices, veal with cabbage…Go? Goodness yes.”
  • Emmanuel Rubin – Figaroscope (2012 – new chef) “…microcompositions tellement graciles…Tout est très soigné, précis, méticuleux, sûrement cérébral et peut-être plein de sentiment, seulement voilà, on ne peut s’interdire cette impression de manger la bouche en cul-de-poule…”
  • Bruno Verjus (2011) “Ici réside l’âme de la cuisine. La précision, le ballet de la gestuelle du chef, l’intelligence des mets, des saveurs, me laissent à chaque fois sans voix et presque sans mot… Du génie à l’état pur!”
  • Meg Zimbeck (2010) “…deflating and befuddled. It was cluttered and careless, like a teenager’s MySpace page that uses seven different fonts. We were subjected, over and over again, to pairings that made absolutely no sense.”
  • Thierry Richard (2009) “Belle, étonnante, subtile et sacrément bien maîtrisée la cuisine de Christophe Pelé est un ravissement.”
  • John Talbott (2008) “…it didn’t come off for any of us as over a 5/10 meal… It is often said that Bigarrade is the “new Spring”, but we think it is not.”
  • François Simon (2008) “…franchement, c’est brillant.”

Reviews of interest

  • John Talbott (2010) “…we had the cote de boeuf for two; he likes his rare, and me blue, but somehow it came out perfectly for us both and he got the bone to chew on… Frites, which defeat most chefs here and in America, were quite good.”
  • Le Fooding (2010) “Même maison que Le Severo tout court, le Bis fait office de plan B quand le premier est complet (ce qui est souvent le cas…)… les produits sont les mêmes, apprêtés avec une égale rigueur janséniste.”

Reviews of interest

  • John Talbott (2012) “…it’s still stunning, but the food while good, is not.”
  • François Simon (2012) “Les plats. Eux aussi ont compris qu’il s’agissait de faire dans le joli et le bon. Mission accomplie avec un rendu de copie sans état d’âme ; le cahier des charges est bien rempli la daurade est royale, l’avocat king crabe est bien gaulé, mais le verre de Faugères est bien cher…”
  • Thierry Richard (2009) “…quand par hasard l’idée vous revient et que vous filez déjeuner au Dôme du Marais, sous l’antique rotonde de lumière dorée (l’ancienne salle des ventes de Ma Tante), les goûts vous reviennent en bouche avant l’assiette.”
