The bustling Saint-Lazare train station is now home to this eagerly anticipated new address from acclaimed chef Eric Fréchon of L’Epicure and Mini Palais. Open seven days a week, at all hours of the day and night, the 3 Michelin star chef will serve casual, classic French food to those on-the-go (and those who want to linger).
No silly categories or kooky awards – just the top ten new restaurants of 2013 according to our Paris by Mouth contributing editors.
Lazare is not an open and friendly haven for travelers or gastronomes. It is a club masquerading as a restaurant, employing the sort of velvet rope snobbery that one expects to find at Le Montana or a Costes establishment. There is nothing Eric Fréchon’s kitchen could have produced which could have salvaged the worst service I’ve received in nine years of writing about Paris restaurants.
