Reviews of interest

Le Fooding (2013) ““très bruyant, très show-off, carte rétrogressive, miche de pain croustillant, rillettes de sardines, calamar sauvage à la carbonara, quasi de veau cuit tout doucement condiment vitello-tonnato, glace vanille minute éclats de noisettes…”

François Simon (2010) “…c’est bien mieux.”

Meg Zimbeck (2009) “…like talking to an incredibly good looking guy who’s only a little bit annoying.”

Alexander Lobrano (2009) “…a frustratingly uneven meal, with thrilling flashes of Piege’s talent lighting up a culinary spectrum that otherwise ran from average to mediocre.”

John Talbott (2009) “I had a lackluster poitrine of pork with a crackling crust of something nicely strange with lentils…it was nowhere as good as the print-boys said.”

Emmanuel Rubin – Figaroscope (2009) “Classique sur le fond, nettement plus chahuteuse sur la forme, la cuisine traduit en manières d’aujourd’hui ce petit éternel des brasseries. Certains trouveront à minauder sur quelques préparations un peu dans la joliesse, voire gentiment narcissiques, mais comment ne pas excuser quelques grammes de parisianisme dans une maison renouant enfin avec Paris?”
