Le Chateaubriand, the (near) perfect example of a modern french bistro

Fantastic!!! what more can I say, truly the best example of a “modern” bistro that I have eaten at in my time in Paris, Amazing service, interesting wines and delicious, interesting interpretations of some classics……

warm light and delicious, classic gougeres

veal tempura, horseradish – a really light boudin blanc type filling, perfect tempura, freshly grated horseradish, another great snack to start the meal

Potato gnocchi, Manchego- pure deliciousness and flawless execution

Tuna, sea greens (purslane), peach, pork sauce – great combination of flavours that really worked to deliver a great depth of flavour

beef broth with basil seeds – homeliness in a bowl.

cheese……….

cherry and capers – the only dish that missed, the texture of the caper leaves and the fllavor clashed with the near perfect sorbet – a shame as it was the only miss all night

Tocino de cielo – litterally Heaven’s Little Pig, based on a Spanish dessert, meringue, salted caramel, lightly cured, but sweet egg yolk, chewy, gooey, sticky sweet, what more you as for in a dessert, eaten in one mouthful, sensational!!!
