Reviews of interest

Le Fooding (2013) “Formidable potato-caviar charlotte; grilled half-lobster tail on a ginger carpaccio in an unprecedented alliance; languorous steamed John Dory on a bed of whole chanterelles; exceptional squab breast stuffed with foie gras; and a killer chocolate soufflé, whose cooking was interrupted when whipped cream was inserted into its center, the edges crispy and the interior half-moussey, half-melting.”

Le Figaro (2010) “Jean-Pierre Vigato y mélange avec justesse produits nobles et roturiers (sa tête de veau fait courir les fadas d’abats), sur fond de haute tech nicité…”

Food Snob (2009) “The food could not be faulted for its execution or flavour with good ingredients used simply and effectively. What stood out was the distinct taste that each element of a dish had, as did the superb soups that supplemented some of the courses – I can see why this was a theme as these are clearly a strength of the kitchen’s. Vigato’s cooking is noted for the juxtaposition of bistro and haute cuisine traditions…”

    This has been our “go to” restaurant for lunch on our last three trips to Paris, for one reason: they have an amazing potato tower topped with caviar – delicious, one of our favorite dishes in Paris! That said, they also serve up beautiful dishes of grilled fish as well, and the service is top notch – I felt bad because I forgot my jacket and while they were great, I felt a bit “under-dressed” because of how upscale the environment is…you can see pics of the potato dish here: https://johnrieber.com/2018/01/27/a-guide-to-the-potatoes-of-paris-baked-mashed-fried-roasted-cheesy-a-cake-as-well/
