Reviews of interest

Alexander Lobrano (2014) “Never measured up to the excellence of Le Pantruche… artful modern French bistro cooking in the heart of Paris… this dining room says so much about how affluent Parisians like to eat today and the crowd offers a perfect tableau of the neighborhood. One way or another, it’s nice to have another first-rate and fairly priced local.”

David Lebovitz (2014) “The menu du jour (€19 at lunch), which included a choice of any of the first courses from the menu, and the main course of the day, which was leg of lamb with a hazelnut crust” and is interested in “coming back and having a full-on meal here. It’s €35 for three courses and I can’t forget to mention that the staff could not have been nicer. It’s great to see the younger generation of French sincerely interested in providing good, helpful, professional service without a hint of pretension or exasperation.”

Le Figaro (2013) “Soupe de betterave, chèvre frais aux œufs de poisson: caressante. Pavé de cabillaud, purée de pois chiches: d’une saine vivacité. Ganache au chocolat et glace à la brioche perdue: très attachant!”

L’Express (2013) “Épatant ping-pong terre-mer entre de gros copeaux d’un foie gras poché dans un bouillon de poule et un tartare duveteux de langoustines du Guilvinec, le tout frotté à une bisque impeccablement corsée et à une mousse d’oseille tonique; splendides saint-jacques d’Erquy, colorées en surface, nacrées à coeur, dialoguant avec la verdeur poivrée d’une mousseline de cresson et l’acidité caressante d’un beurre mousseux au citron.”

Table à Découvert (2013) “Prix raisonnables, qualité de la cuisine irréprochable, vraiment, si je cherche la petite bête, je ne trouve pas.”

Time Out (2013) “Diners will find everything on the plate that made them fall for Le Pantruche in the first place: well-thought-out dishes, inventive without overdoing it, pitch-perfect execution inherited from the best kitchens (many of the team trained at the three-Michelin-starred Le Bristol, under Eric Fréchon), and an instinct to feed generously that never loses out to culinary posturing.”
