Kei

Kei Kobayashi is one of the most famous names in the city of light, with a passion for French cuisine hard to match. A passion that started very early in his life, still in Nagano (his hometown) when enchanted by Alain Chapel’s work in a tv show. And there started his own path in cuisine, first in […]

Champeaux

I remember visiting Paris as a young man, and trying to avoid the metro station Rer de Chatelet-Les Halles as much as I could, for the bustle of the thousands of people crossing or the suspicious environment of the Les Halles area. Gone were the times that area was the “womb” of the city, being home of […]

Akrame

Akrame Benallal may not be under the World’s 50 Best spotlight and other publications, like others whose the PR work is higher than the chefs work or cuisines. But since he opened his namesake restaurant, acknowledgment has not been missing. From Michelin stars to opening other businesses and restaurants, perseverance is this young chef’s middle name, even when […]

Le Narcisse Blanc

The subtlety of a ballerina’s movement, the mysterious expression of her look, and the eternal beauty of a muse, are the inspiration that led  Laurent and Laurence to create the unique Le Narcisse Blanc. Cléo de Mérode was a Belle Époque ballerina (let’s say it was the first It Girl there’s memory of!), her beauty inspired some of the most emblematic artists […]

Le Duc

Having just landed in Paris, still without a lunch reservation for Saturday, the choice was easy – trying to get a table at Le Duc, since we were already very convinced by our dear Aiste’s (Luxeat) recommendations and praises for a long time now. A call from our concierge, and 10 minutes of Uber after, […]

Le 5 Codet

In this constant search for luxury, we often find ourselves in the spotlights and glitter of the “see and be seen”.  For me, that search ends, precisely, when I get this sick need to “show off”. Luxury is more than that, it’s discrete, intimate, the simple subtlety not everybody seems to understand. We no longer […]

Les Fables de la Fontaine

 The Rue Saint-Dominique in the 7th Parisian district is the craddle of Christian Constant’s empire, and it was also there that “in other life” he opened a sea dedicated restaurant, Les Fables de la Fontaine – in a pun intended between the Fontaine de Mars, where the restaurant is located, and the famous book of Jean de la Fontaine – in 2005 […]

David Toutain

Nowadays, to understant or interpret the work of a contemporary cook, it’s necessary to do some time traveling, know his roots, education and philosophy, and know where he wants to put his cuisine. It’s the case of René Redzepi of Noma, Alex Atala of D.O.M or Massimo Bottura of the Osteria Francescana (current nº1 of the guide World’s 50 Best Restaurants), just to name a few. […]

Les Tablettes de Jean-Louis Nomicos

It is common knowledge that nowadays the Spanish vanguard, the Nordic cuisine and even the Peruvian stole the spotlight of the French Nouvelle Cuisine, as it is well evident in rankings like The World’s 50 Best Restaurants – whether you agree or not… But putting modernism, tendencies, and new ways to eat aside, I remain […]
