After a great deal of difficulty getting reservations to this small, jewel-box of a restaurant (about 25 seats), we finally arrived at the front door for what became by far the best 3-star dinner we have ever enjoyed. The maitre d' asks if there is anything you cannot eat (and we said no), and from there on, over the next 3.5 hours, we revelled in eating whatever it was the chef had decided for that evening. The only choice we had was whether we wanted the paired wines to accompany the courses, and we did. The meal was 8 courses with 4 wines plus one course with saki. Champagne to start, of course. We had fois gras layered between thin slices of mushrooms, with powdered ginger on top, two fish courses, one with savoy cabbage, one with tiny mushrooms in an eggy sauce; a course with langoustine with an Asian sauce that was almost like a BBQ sauce - very spicy, accompanied by saki; two meat dishes, one very young pork, and one very lightly sauteed duck breast. Various vegetable reductions, and other sauces we can't possibly remember or identify that rounded out each perfectly constructed course. We finished with 2 desserts - one a tart citron that was the lemony-est little tart we could ever imagine and the other a spicy sorbet that cleansed the palate and sent us on our way. Staff were so friendly and it really wasn't that formal. They explained everything and respected our wish to speak French - resorting to English only when we just couldn't "get it". A couple of words of caution: it is very expensive (330 euros each with paired wines), but worth every euro, and you really need to be a "foodie" who is adventuresome and open to new culinary delights. If you can't gulp and accept the cost, and if you are "picky" or only want your meat well done or don't like this or that, then you shouldn't go to dinner here. It would be lost on you and would be an affront to this genius chef.
