The New York Times (2015) “The chef Takayuki Honjo improvises with simple, market-driven dishes, such as roast pigeon in cocoa sauce, which are as delicate in flavor as they are graphic in presentation.”

Ann Mah (2015) “The food at Bouillon Chartier isn’t that bad. But the truth is, no one comes here for the food… 1) We wanted to meet near les Grands Boulevards; and 2) It’s open on a Monday. Oh, and 3) It’s historic. And 4) It’s cheap (bonus!).”

The sepia-toned dining room at this historic bistro remains the same, but Alain Ducasse and protégé Laëtitia Rouabah have taken over the kitchen and the accompanying carte of classic Burgundian dishes. Reviews are mixed.

What people are saying

Hipsters in Paris (2013) “It’s the exact kind of simple, inexpensive and super fresh Asian food the canal needs, made even more genial by it’s picnic ready packaging.”

Time Out (2013) “Order some extra toppings, because the seasoning tends to get sidelined as the chefs struggle to keep up with the demand at lunchtime… For all its fresh healthy goodness, the bibimbap doesn’t quite hold up on the flavour front. The starters (cucumber soup, veggie salads) are a better bet… theirs is a kitchen we’d love to love – we may just have to wait a while longer for it to settle in.”

Reviews of interest

Patricia Wells (2011) “Though the welcome at Auguste is warm and service impeccable, what happened in the kitchen and on the plate was simply not convincing… the sad and tasteless fish was set in a mushy bed of pumpkin puree and simply left me without an appetite. Another first course combination of oysters,  horseradish, and andouille also seemed terribly misguided.”

Table à Découvert (2013) “Les prix s’envolent vite aussi, comptez 10-15€ pour une entrée au minimum, quant aux viandes, elles s’affichent à partir de 25 ou 30€. Ceci me semble justifié compte-tenu de la qualité et du temps de maturation de la viande (explication en quelques mots: elle est déjà restée à maturer chez l’éleveur et elle reste encore un mois dans les frigos du resto= perte d’eau et de poids, stockage, immobilisation d’espace).”

Arpège

The most divisive of the three-star restaurants, Arpège is a place you’ll either love or hate. I’m in the former camp, through I acknowledge a worrying amount of repetition in Alain Passard’s tasting menu and the fact that his acolytes (David Toutain, Bertrand Grébaut) are working similar magic for a fraction of the price. Before booking Arpège, ask yourself this: are you more likely to focus on the amount of pleasure that Passard can tease from an onion, or on the stratospheric markup of that ingredient? If you answered the latter, better to seek out caviar somewhere else. >> Read More

Reviews of interest

Thierry Richard (2013) “Voilà le genre de table qui fait aimer Paris des américains. Un restaurant dans son jus dont le calendrier des appétits est resté bloqué quelque part dans les années 60…En cuisine, Pierre laisse aux commandes le chef qui remuait les casseroles dans l’arrière-salle depuis vingt-cinq ans et perpétue, à quelques plats près, le menu labellisé 1961, tapé à la machine, qu’il retrouve dans les archives du restaurant. Ce sera donc ambiance filets de hareng, escargots de Bourgogne, quenelles de brochet, tripes et coq au vin. Une cuisine de répertoire bistrotier, loin du manger-correct de l’époque et délicieusement forte en gueule.”
