One of the most unique restaurants in Paris. Asian ingredients used by renowned Chef Chef William Ledeuil. An excerpt from my review:
One word, WOW. Chef Ledeuil is a true culinary artist. Chapeau to the Chef. He broke the French mold and took chances to influence the French’s otherwise strict, classical and rigid palette to explore other flavors of the world, but not losing French technique and/or sensibility. I remember just 10-years ago when even a hint of spice was looked down upon by the French. But with the influx of Chefs from around the world opening restaurants in Paris with foods and spices from their native countries, to classically French trained chefs traveling the world to broaden their food knowledge, what a great culinary evolution taking place in Paris, and what a great time to be in Paris.
Chef Ledeuil is known for his broths and sauces and of course his use of Asian flavors. Although the menu was heavy on Asian products there were other influences from e.g., Galicia and also North Africa. The gazpacho was out of this world, the entrées were all delicious and although I’m not a dessert person, I have to say they were good. The staff seemed genuinely happy. In fact, one of his apprentices, our maitre’d, had worked for Chef Ledeuil since he was 17 and he’s now 27. He had nothing but praise for the chef. And, the other staff all seemed extremely happy. It says a lot and showed in their enthusiasm when describing the dishes, and serving them. So, the service was beyond reproach. This is one of the best meals I’ve had in our almost 10-years of living in Paris. Will we come back? ABSOLUTELY. I’m afraid it’s going to get so popular that I may not get in anymore.
