In Other Words
Alexander Lobrano (2020) writes that under Jean-François Piège’s management, A l’Epi d’Or “has mercifully been spared the ignominious fate of too many traditional Paris bistros in an ever gentrifying city: becoming a clothing store.” It is now, he says “a better restaurant than it’s ever been,” boasting “the kind of proud humble Gallic comfort food that will always be my gastronomic true north” including “one of the best pâté en croûte” in the city.
Ad Magazine (2020) reports that this classic bistro retains its wooden chairs and 1930s tiling. The menu remains resolutely traditional and boasts a signature pâté en croûte. Just one nod to modernity: an open kitchen.
Le Figaro (2020) delivers a real rave, with Emmanuel Rubin beseeching readers to “Run!” right over to this revisited classic bistro with its open kitchen and “adorable” service.
Vogue (2020) appreciates the “rustic” décor and “perfectly realized” classic bistro dishes coming out of Piège’s open kitchen. “Everything is good and furiously regressive,” writes Jade Simon.
