Lazare

NOTE: This restaurant is closed for renovations until April 2, 2016. The bustling Saint-Lazare train station is home to this eagerly anticipated new restaurant from chef Eric Fréchon (L’Epicure and Mini Palais). Open seven days a week but requiring advance reservations and suffering, by many accounts, from atrocious service that undermines Fréchon’s delicious Norman-inflected cooking.

Reviews of interest

Time Out (2012) “Some loyal patrons never get beyond the oyster bar or the fresh shellfish buffet, while others reliably order the lobster from the tank or salad with balsamic vinegar and lightly spice d tomato sauce, or the pan-fried Dover sole, and others go off-piste onto the excellent meat menu with herb-crusted rack of lamb. Excellent wines and desserts and sprightly, professional service.”

David Lebovitz (2015) “Pastry chef Laurent Jeannin isn’t the household name other French pastry chefs are… But if I have any say in the matter, judging from the desserts that we had that afternoon, he’s quite possibly the best pastry chef in Paris.”
