Bistrot Belhara

A recent visit didn’t live up to the hype in which Thierry Dufroux’s Basque-inflected bistrot was declared “one of the revelations of 2013.” With the exception of a vanilla millefeuille with fresh strawberries, every dish was fine but forgettable. The wine list was uninspired and service was brisk and joyless. Three years ago, when most of this restaurant’s reviews were written, Belhara may have stood out as more exciting. It may have actually been more exciting back then. But today, when Paris is experiencing a renaissance of old-fashioned cuisine bourgeoise, Belhara doesn’t quite make it to Our Top 50 Paris Restaurants. Its saving grace: three courses for 38€ is still a great value for dinner in the 7ème near the Eiffel Tower.  >> Read More

Le Figaro (2016) “Venu de Courchevel, Sylvestre Wahid succède à Piège du côté de chez Thoumieux, manœuvre la berline de brasserie du rez-de-chaussée et ordonne, à l’étage, une gastronomie de force tranquille, sans esbroufe, d’un chic foncier, appliquée au saisonnier, consciencieuse à disposer en menu dédié (chair, mer, végétal) une cuisine renouant avec la générosité et ce vieux mot que l’on croyait usé: la gourmandise.”

Figaroscope (2015) “Homard en chapelure de poutargue, endives à l’orange: le végétal parfait, le crustacé un peu alibi. Volaille de Chalosse, petit chou farci: d’une gourmandise réservée. Moelleux de courge, clémentines marinées: diaphane.”

Time Out (2014) “Rosa est un spot parfait pour passer l’été, s’abandonner au soleil sur des coussins moelleux, travailler en wifi à l’ombre des arbres, s’asseoir en groupes à des tables conviviales. Les aficionados du Rosa Bonheur s’attendront à reprendre leurs petites habitudes en achetant des bouteilles de vins (à partir de 19 €), ou des verres à 3,50 €.

Alexander Lobrano (2015) “… cooking that’s as vivid, joyous and inventive as Julia Sedefdjian’s served in a lively dining room where everyone was clearly having a great time. One way or another, the inspired and very hard working Sedefidjian is very much a young chef to sample, savour, sample again and keep an eye on.”

Patricia Wells (2011) “Though the welcome at Auguste is warm and service impeccable, what happened in the kitchen and on the plate was simply not convincing… the sad and tasteless fish was set in a mushy bed of pumpkin puree and simply left me without an appetite. Another first course combination of oysters,  horseradish, and andouille also seemed terribly misguided.”

Arpège

The most divisive of the three-star restaurants, Arpège is a place you’ll either love or hate. I’m in the former camp, through I acknowledge a worrying amount of repetition in Alain Passard’s tasting menu and the fact that his acolytes (David Toutain, Bertrand Grébaut) are working similar magic for a fraction of the price. Before booking Arpège, ask yourself this: are you more likely to focus on the amount of pleasure that Passard can tease from an onion, or on the stratospheric markup of that ingredient? If you answered the latter, better to seek out caviar somewhere else. >> Read More
