The New York Times (2015) “Hideki Nishi dabbles in modern French cuisine including salmon with a Gorgonzola millefeuille.”

Le Fooding (2014) “A true jewel lost in the land of gluttonous bistros, Neige d’Eté makes the most impeccable French terroir vibrate (vegetables from Annie Bertin, fish from the Etel auction, lobsters from Vincent Doucet…), rebooted by a fundamentalist of proper cooking techniques and neat compositions.”

Le Figaro (2014) “Bien évidemment, le menu joue le jour le jour, l’unique, la surprise, sans l’ombre d’un choix (3 ou 6 plats selon la formule), réduit aux seules inspirations du susdit jeune chef. Bien sûr, les compositions se tendent à flatter le regard dans un millimétrage paysagé, à discipliner produit dense et cuisson courte, à faire surtout tableau au risque de l’ellipse. En apparence, cette cuisine se veut gracile, immédiate, spontanée. À tenter de la percer, elle se révèle nettement plus méditative.”

Philippe Toinard (2014) “Et une cuisine à l’unisson, à travers un menu imposé qui débute par de l’encornet poêlé. Taillés en carrés, les morceaux d’encornets forment un chapiteau que l’on entrouvre pour découvrir, un savoureux mélange de girolles, de petits pois, de moules et de riz noir. L’iode se mêle au sucre, le craquant au croquant, le moelleux à l’onctueux. Une belle entrée en matière.”

Alexander Lobrano (2012) “… the menu read rather Business Class, but chef Christophe Marchais delivered a fine surprise…This was well-conceived and executed fun festive food that avoided the pitfalls of being frilly and silly, which is what too often happens in high-altitude settings…. desserts are studiously art-directed but also delicious.”

Le Figaro (2012) “Velouté de homard au corail d’oursin servi à la soupière: capiteux. Selle d’agneau rôtie au thym citronné, légumes d’hier et d’aujourd’hui: comme souvent avec le sérieux, un peu ennuyeux. Opéra à l’émulsion d’arabica: probe.”

John Talbott (2014) “The menu is as interesting as ever.”

Table à Découvert (2011) “Générosité, simplicité et un petit truc en plus qui enrobe le tout d’une sincère gourmandise…”

Figaroscope (2011) “Au bon matelas d’un arrondissement solidement rembourré de plumes bistrotières, un petit nouveau tirant joliment la couverture d’une cuisine troussée à manière sur un impayable décor jadis et pépère.”

John Talbott (2010) “The decor spells out the tone they’re setting right away: old Michelin‘s on a shelf over the kitchen door, faux-stained glass on the door to the kitchen, beautiful but unmatched light fixtures, old coat hooks on the walls…As an amuse bouche, we were served a chicken liver paste with two types of superb bread and that and a delicious piece of sauteed foie gras with wonderful salad and quince slices…”

John Talbott (2011) “… while there is an Alsatian spin to some dishes, the onion amuse gueule, for instance and the Alsatian white wines, it’s not pronounced…soup of cepes, foie gras and chestnuts… sauteed foie gras with pear, chestnuts and a chunk of baby lettuce; both were quite good.”

John Talbott (2014) “1 Brazilian chef + 3 French menus = 4 superb meals.”

Alexander Lobrano (2013) “While Jacinto is a good cook, he remains very much a student of his former master. This isn’t necessarily a bad thing, but I’d like to see him reference his Brazilian roots a little bit more… I suspect, however, that Jacinto will become a more authoritative chef a few changes of menu from now, and for the time being he’s working with excellent produce and certainly knows how to run a restaurant well.”

John Talbott (2013) “I began with the veloute of Breton artichokes with artichokes, a cepes ravioli and lardons with a slice of crispy, crunchy, spicy chorizo (wonderful); proceeded to the so-called rabbit fricassee, really a deconstructed rabbit with a compote of cooked figs (pas mal de tout); and for dessert…I got the pear with a sauce bowl of caramel (my oh my).”

Figaroscope (2013) “Velouté d’artichauts bretons, ravioles de cèpes et lardons: judicieux! Filet de canette de Barbarie, compotée de figues au Porto rouge: l’automne sous la dent. Choux profiteroles: gonflés!”
