Cult dish? This Jerusalem artichoke velouté, orange/rosemary cream, Colonnata bacon (€9)
A former butcher’s store, a pared-down more-industrial decor, a no-res coverage, waiters every friendlier than the opposite, a kitchen that works repeatedly… The third desk of serial restaurateur Charles Compagnon (after the Richer and Workplace) could possibly be mistaken for the results of a convention on new profitable restaurant developments. Which, in itself, is much from being a foul factor, particularly when you know the way to decide on your time. Personally, we’ve got lengthy been a part of this journaling fauna, attempting to stretch the espresso to the max (Compagnon coffees), tapping on our laptop between meal occasions. The mega-good level is the numerous electrical retailers at your ft: sufficient to recharge the batteries, in each sense of the phrase.
However that night, we licked up the final drop of our Jerusalem artichoke velouté, orange/rosemary cream, Colonnata bacon (€9, killer), earlier than delving into one other starter: a tasty and really creamy burrata, with two spoonfuls of cream of kalamated olives and peppers (€10). And since by no means two with out three, we fish once more on this tempting menu for a grilled cuttlefish, flanked with Soissons beans, intelligently boosted with chorizo and grapefruit (€14). And to have a good time the uncommon veal picanha (€23), buttered with cabbage, pumpkins, smoked parsnips, chestnuts… We wash down with gentle however well-constructed purple wine: a 2016 Beaujo-Villages balloon from Anthony Thévenet (€6).
