Reviews of interest

Les Grands Ducs (2012) “C’est sans aucun doute l’une des dix plus belles terrasses de Paris… Un surprenant menu du déjeuner, « 45 minutes – 45 € » pourrait même aller jusqu’à rendre cette table de luxe quasi accessible si les liquides n’avaient tôt fait de faire flamber l’addition.”

Le Figaro (2011) “…ouverte, volubile, disposant à toute heure (ou presque) une belle série de recettes…”

Alexander Lobrano (2011) ” a wonderful spelt risotto with finely shaved ribbons of squid and a bright lemony sauce, [was] a much happier example of Thierry Marx’s cooking than my beef…The bill for this meal was almost 200 Euros, a thumping sum that led me to some musings on what the ‘second’ restaurant in a luxury hotel should be.”

John Talbott (2011) “From the first telephone call to our exit we were impressed by the staff; very welcoming and speaking the language they heard diners speak…daurade japonaise, pigeon with a nice piece of foie gras, a lobster ravioli, and a calamari risotto.  All serviceable, but…not terribly good…”

Paris Bouge (2011) “Camélia propose une cuisine gastronomique plutôt accessible. Le chef doublement étoilé, Thierry Marx, revisite des plats traditionnels français avec une touche exotique d’Asie. Parmi les plats concoctés: la langoustine avec son bouillon infusé à la verveine et ses fines ravioles de carottes, le bœuf mode en gelée au foie gras et vinaigrette au wasabi ou l’épaule d’agneau du Quercy confite au jus, servie avec des artichauts et une marmelade de tomate. Pour le sucré, le chef propose de nombreux desserts (12 €) et notamment un Saint-Honoré en hommage à la rue. ”

The Michelin Guide has just released its 2012 designations. Here’s a quick summary, for those who care.

Le Cinq, which was rumored last year to be a contender for a third star, was passed over once again. Guy Martin was stripped of his single star, awarded only last year, for Sensing. A deepening love for Asian cuisines is clearly visible in the promotion of KeiSolaShang Palace and (indirectly) Sur Mesure.
