Reviews of interest

  • Thierry Richard (2011) “les assiettes qui s’ensuivent ne décoivent pas dans cette veine italo-sophistiquée qui passe les standards transalpins à la moulinette de la modernité….dans son genre haut du panier, l’une des meilleures tables italiennes de la capitale. Service de palace et prix à l’avenant.”
  • Alexander Lobrano (2011) “The remodeled Il Carpaccio is very pretty…Unfortunately, even though Rispoli’s debut dish–mackerel with Italian fatback, preserved lemon and a salad of  bitter greens–was very pretty, it was also monastic and very bland, odd for such a full-flavored fish. Next up, a fancy vegetable minestrone… again, very bland.”
  • Emmanuel Rubin – Le Figaro (2010) “une Italie comme on en croise rarement…Tête de cèpe farcie : si l’automne avait un goût, ce plat lui ressemblerait ! Tortellini de pintade, châtaigne et son bouillon : on en boufferait jusqu’à la porcelaine de l’assiette.”

Le Figaro (2008) “… il est toujours aussi difficile de trouver une table dans ce petit bistrot moderne…”

Chocolate & Zucchini (2003) “The restaurant is airy and bright, with red chairs and orange walls, very warm… I went for the Tarte fine aux poireaux, Foies de volaille confits, a thin and biscuity crust, topped with strips of leek, a delicious layer of crumbled duck liver and salad leaves.”

L’Agrume

This contemporary bistro was seriously hyped in its early days, thanks in part to the 37€, five-course menu and a young chef with a great resumé, and perhaps the novelty of a middle-of-nowhere location, deep in the fifth.

Les Fines Gueules restaurant in Paris | parisbymouth.com

Les Fines Gueules

On a lovely corner near the Place des Victoires, Les Fines Gueules serves quality product in simple-but-good preparations. One of the best hand cut steak tartares in the city. The wine list is overwhelmingly natural, and there’s a handful of tables outside for sipping on the sidewalk on warm summer nights. Warning: many readers have raised concerns about the service (see comments below).

– Meg Zimbeck, 2013

A Nous Paris (2015) “Passation en toute discrétion pour cette institution du bien manger et du bon boire. Magali et Delphine, à la tête de cette maison depuis 2009 ont confié les clés à Philippe Marques dont le CV ravira les amateurs de bouteilles: chef sommelier au Mandarin Oriental à Londres puis chez Senderens, place de la Madeleine, pendant dix ans et plus récemment au Prince de Galles. Excusez du peu.”

Have you been? Leave your own opinion about Le Timbre in the comments!

David Lebovitz (2017) includes this among his Favorite Paris Restaurants and says “Every time I eat at Le Timbre, I wonder why I don’t eat at this petit restaurant more often. It’s very small (hence the name, which means “the stamp”) and features very fresh food.”
